Lil Nas X ft Billy Ray Cyrus 'Old Town Road' by Calmatic
Lil Nas X's Old Town Road, featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, has been a surprising American No.1 that's kept Taylor and Shawn Mendez from the top of the charts (and possibly will Ed and Justin too), that now finally gets a proper official music video - and it's a banger.
Cowboy bank robbers in 1889, Nas X and Billy Ray make their getaway after a heist, but dodging bullets leads Nas to fall through a wormhole to the present day. Much fun ensues in this hugely entertaining video directed by Calmatic, produced at Prettybird, and including numerous cameos, including Chris Rock and Vince Staples.
The VFX work was achieved at Electric Theatre Collective's LA studio, and graded by British colourist Jason Wallis.
