The “Ventura” artist recently appeared on BBC Radio 1′s live lounge, where he and a band performed a version of the record-breaking hit, which has notably spurred wide conversations this year about the country music industry and its inclusion of Black artists.
As BBC Radio 1 noted on Twitter, Anderson .Paak’s cover of “Old Town Road” also incorporates instrumentals from Erykah Badu’s “Window Seat,” which was released in 2010. The radio station posted the video of the performance online Monday.
In July, “Old Town Road,” featuring Cyrus, broke the record for having the longest-running streak at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Clearly, Anderson .Paak’s neo-soul twist of “Old Town Road” is also gaining some popularity on Twitter:
First time using “Stan” in a sentence and TBH not sure if doing it right, but I am stanning @AndersonPaak . ???
