We’re five months into Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” domination, and the country-trap banger shows no signs of loosening its grip on the masses. And in the long-standing tradition of urbano artists covering English-language hip-hop (Fuego’s Drake cover, “Cuando Suena el Bling,” Messiah’s take on Future’s “Fuck Up Some Commas”), it was inevitable that a truly poppin’ “Old Town Road” remix would materialize.

And who better to take the literal horse by the reigns than two of urbano’s most exciting new artists, Jon Z (who recently dropped some fire bars on YG’s “Go Loko,”) and Eladio Carrión (who was just tapped to open on J Balvin’s Arcoiris tour).

Watch the video below and try not to sing along to the undeniably catchy refrain “Voy a llevar mi caballo por todo el barrio.”

It’s safe to say the yeehaw agenda has fully reached the urbano world, and we’re here for it.
