It is a fusion of musical genres as Sony Music Africa presents a cover of Lil Nas X’s flagship record titled “Old Town Road.” This latest episode features Kwesta, Elandre & Offentse.
It was in the past campaign that Lil Nas X whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill found fame with the country rap song.
Even though the Atlanta, Georgia-native had dropped the song as as part of the “Yeehaw Challenge” on the video sharing app TikTok, he recorded unprecedented success.
In fact, “Old Town Road” peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and was controversially removed from the Hot Country Songs after debuting at number 19.
Only thing is the fact that the good folks at Sony Music Africa brought together some of the finest acts in Kwesta, Elandre & Offentse to make more meaning of an already successful piece and the output is pure bliss.
This is as the boys go on a singing rendition over the beautiful instrumentals of the original piece to birth an almost entirely new number.
In fact, this is Kwesta Dakar delving right into new frontiers like you have never seen and even though he’s achieved success in the world of SA Hip Hop, he proves a multi-talented side on this one.
In the end, “Old Town Road (Cover)” simply smacks of the abundance of talents and musical quality your most vital playlists will cherish.
