Anderson .Paak gives "Old Town Road" a soulful makeover

16 September 2019, 15:43 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

As part of BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge Month, Anderson .Paak stopped by to provide a soulful cover of Lil Nas X's hit "Old Town Road".

The multi-talented musician took on Lil Nas X's smash hit "Old Town Road" from behind a drumkit, with the help of backing singers and a band made up of members of The Free Nationals.

.Paak even does an impression of a London accent as a quick interlude before wrapping up his cover, in which he says, "It’s good to see you guys back again in London Town, I came from the Watts Swap Meet."

"Old Town Road" still holds the record for the longest running Number One single of all time in the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Back in July Anderson .Paak featured on YBN Cordae's "RNP".
