When the pair are accosted at a nearby homestead by its gun-toting owner, Lil Nas X escapes by diving into a mineshaft that hurls him into 2019, Rolling Stone reported.
That's when the lonely banjo licks kick into the "Old Town Road" song, as Lil Nas X rides his horse down a modern street. He gets incredulous stares from Rico Nasty and Staples, and reunites with Cyrus, Variety reported.
Lil Nas X rides his horse to victory against a car in a street race, then heads to a bingo hall, where he and Cyrus sing -- and Diplo plays a washboard -- while the bingo players break out into a line dance.
"Old Town Road" was a viral hit on TikTok and was gaining traction on Billboard's Hot 100 when it was removed from the country charts because it did not "embrace enough elements of today's country music to chart in its current version," according to the magazine.
After that, Cyrus teamed with Lil Nas X to produce a remix.
