It seems that Atlanta rapper Lil Nas X might have the last laugh on Billboard as country music legend Billy Ray Cyrus has joined him on the "Old Town Road" remix.

The comes after the original version of "Old Town Road" was pulled from the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart last week after the chart compilers said that the song wasn't "country enough". 

The song was set to go number on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart that week before it was pulled. And before it's upward trajectory on the chart Billboard agreed at that stage it was a country song.

When the song was pulled from the chart, it caused outrage on social media with members from the country music scene also pointing out the history of racism in the country music industry. 

Then "Achy Breaky Heart" singer Billy Ray Cyrus came to the rescue, as the country music legend jumped on the remix of the song which dropped on Friday. 

Twitter users did waste anytime in making the song trend and have been enjoying Billy Ray Cyrus' addition on the song.
