Lil Nas X Surprises Billy Ray Cyrus With Maserati for 'Old Town Road' Success

Having spent seven weeks at the top of Billboard Hot 100 with the breakout single, the Atlanta rapper is showing his appreciation to his country collaborator by gifting him the new sports car.

AceShowbiz - Rapper Lil Nas X has gifted his "Old Town Road" collaborator Billy Ray Cyrus a new set of sporty wheels from the pair's new video to thank him for making the song a hit.

He handed Miley Cyrus' dad the keys to a Maserati sports car on Monday, May 20.

Cyrus stepped in to add his vocals to the chart-topper after country music radio station bosses refused to play Lil Nas X's tune, convinced it was more of a rap song. The "Achy Breaky Heart" singer's input turned the tune's fortunes around and it has spent the past seven weeks at the top of the U.S. pop charts, fighting off challenges from Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran.

The Maserati GranTurismo Convertible is the same car that features in the new "Old Town Road" video, which has been viewed almost 50 million times since it's debut at the weekend.

In a clip of the key handover Lil Nas X has posted online, he drives up to Cyrus' studio and presents him with the motor, stating, "It's yours. 'Old Town Road', number one for seven weeks."
