Looks like he’s still ridin’. Lil Nas X wins Song of the Year at the MTV VMAs:
It’s hard to remember a time when Lil Nas X wasn’t on top. Truthfully, why would we want to? From Old Town Road breaking records at #1 for 19 consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, to the star studded music video, to the now official title of Song of the Year at the MTV VMAs.
On August 26th, the MTV VMAs aired and let’s be honest, there was no other song that could’ve touched Old Town Road. If you weren’t signing it, someone next you was. It, like Lil Nas X have crept its way into our lives. I think we’re OK with it.
Despite all of the nominations, Song of the Year is Lil Nas’ first award.. ever. It’s hard to believe, we know. The 20 year old rapper received his award with Billy Ray Cyrus and a scroll to the floor worth of speech (just jokes!).
His real speech was very simple. He made sure to shout out Cyrus. “I want to say thank you to this man for helping me take my career to the next level,”.
Congratulations to Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus! It’s officially the year of Old Town Road.
