Will Smith Pitches Himself To Star In Video For Lil Nas X’s Trap-Country Crossover Hit ‘Old Town Road’

As Lil Nas X’s trap-country crossover hit “Old Town Road” continues to climb the charts, a Hollywood A-lister is apparently offering his services when it comes time to make a video.

Taking to Instagram, Will Smith shared video footage from his “Wild Wild West” music video for the title track from the soundtrack to his 1999 steampunk western of the same name.

“Y’all Call me when you’re ready to shoot the video,” wrote the 50-year-old star in the caption, tagging Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus, who teamed up with the trap artist for a country-fied remix after the song was denied a spot on the Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart.

While there’s no word on whether a video for the song will be produced, fans can only hope that if it happens, Little Nas X will take Smith up on his offer.

“Old Town Road” became the centre of controversy when Billboard removed the song from its country chart because “it does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music.”

However, the venerable music magazine may reconsider that decision. “Billboard welcomes the excitement created by genre-blending tracks such as Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’ and will continue to monitor how it is marketed and how fans respond,” reads a statement from Billboard, as reported by Spin. “Our initial decision to remove ‘Old Town Road’ from the Hot Country Songs chart could be revisited as these factors evolve.”
