Lil Nas X's viral hit "Old Town Road" samples Nine Inch Nails

Lil Nas X’s bizarre trap-country jam “Old Town Road” has been screaming up the charts and is the number 1 song on Billboard Hot 100 this week.

Stereogum points out the song samples “34 Ghost IV” from Nine Inch Nail’s 2008 album Ghosts I–IV. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross both show up on the writing credits for song giving them their first #1 hit song. Huh.
