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."
