We are exposing the creators of “Old Town Road” for stealing the melody from Nickelback‘s “Rock Star”!!

Lil Nas X‘s and Billy Ray Cyrus‘ single, “Old Town Road”, is a MASSIVE hit…and arguably the song of the Summer.

The YouTube video is currently at 242 MILLION views!

However, I am EXPOSING this track as a rip-off!

I feel that they steal the melodic hook from Nickelback…and I’ve got the two videos below to prove it!

And, YES, I’m screaming as I type this!

Someone alert the CIA and FBI…this conspiracy goes all the way to the top!
