The music industry keeps getting weirder and weirder. 'Old Town Road,' a country-rap track from 19-year-old Lil Nas X, is probably the biggest song in the world right now. The song combines country lyrics and banjo-playing with a thumping hip-hop beat. Originally, it hit the Hot Country Songs chart, before Billboard decided to remove it from the list. This sparked outrage online, with many saying that the decision was racially-motivated. Frustrated, Lil Nas X reached out to Billy Ray Cyrus, for a new remix to put the song atop the Hot Country Songs chart. It isn't the first cross-genre hit, as artists have always tried to test their creative limits. From Avicii's anthem with Aloe Blacc to Aerosmith rap collab with RUN-DMC, crazy cross-genre collabs are nothing new. Click on to check out the best musical crossovers ever.
