Old Town Road
The rapper and singer paid homage to the NBA legend as they sang "Old Town Road" alongside BTS, Diplo, Mason Ramsey and Nas.
The rapper said he was proud to see his "Old Town Road" remix with Billy Ray Cyrus bridge "two polar opposite genres."
The country trap song is only one of 32 songs ever to be certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America, a spokesperson said.
The "Old Town Road" rapper told Ellen DeGeneres he was inspired by young fans "who won’t have to go through stuff like this in the future.”
The "Ventura" artist performed Lil Nas X's record-breaking hit with a twist.
The Atlanta artist's original release of "Old Town Road" sparked wide conversation about racial discrimination in the country music world.
The 20-year-old, who was nominated for a total of nine awards on Monday night, brought a massive scroll with his "speech" on it to the stage.
After 19 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Lil Nas X’s streak has ended thanks to Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy.”
Lil Nas X's smash hit (and its remixes) reigned supreme on the Hot 100 chart for 19 consecutive weeks before being taken by the "make your mama sad type."
The Atlanta native's song surpassed 1995 hit "One Sweet Day" and 2017's "Despacito" by spending 17 weeks at the top Billboard Hot 100 spot.
