From viral TikTok sensation to music’s primary smash hit, “Previous Town Street” has taken the highest spot in music’s cultural firmament relying on an incredible Nine Inch Nails sample, some old style controversy (it was barred from country music charts) and a remix with Billy Ray Cyrus.
So it’s only natural that the track that was created virtually and rose to No. 1 by means of on-line ubiquity would work its method backward via the normal music business’s playbook to finally, after weeks atop the Billboard charts, get its video remedy.
And what a video remedy it's. This video has everything. Horse chases, automotive races, gunfights, time travel and bingo.
Joining Lil Nas X is a cornucopia of well-known faces from music and film, including Billy Ray Cyrus (in fact), Chris Rock, Diplo, Vince Staples and Rico Nasty.
It’s been an extended week, so take a break with a trip on the “Previous City Street.” It’s fun.
