View this post on Instagram
Lil Wayne hit the stage at Lollapalooza music festival on Saturday (August 3) and unveiled his very own remix of Lil Nas X’s record-breaking No.1 hit, “Old Town Road.”
In July, a snippet of Wayne rapping over the “Old Town Road” instrumental was leaked. In an interview with XXL, he revealed that he recorded an unreleased official remix of the track.
“They sent it to me and I did it as an official remix,” he said. “I’m not sure if they was gonna use it.”
Wayne hopping on the track might keep it on the charts for a bit longer. Lil Nas X recently broke a Billboard record for the longest-running no. 1, beating Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day.”
Weezy is the latest artist to remix the hit song. So far, “Old Town Road” has been remixed by Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug and Mason Ramsey, RM of BTS, and Diplo.
Check out clips of the performance below.
