Lil Nas X is no stranger to being in the news. Well, today isn’t any different either. At this point, almost everyone knows that Lil Nas X songs contain interesting Easter eggs. Discovering these hidden references is one of the main reasons why his music videos are so enjoyable. In one of his recent releases titled “Rodeo”, it looks like he has hinted towards a collaboration. Yes, we are talking about the Oreo reference!
Oreo Cookie’s Reaction to the Lil Nas X “Shout-out”
It turns out that Oreo Cookie’s reaction to hearing their brand’s name (alleged) in the chartbuster song was exactly as ours. At first, Oreo took to Twitter to confirm whether Lil Nas X intended to give them the shout-out. Their tweet read,
Did we hear our name in “Rodeo”? Since it’s #ValentinesDay we thought we’d let you know…⚫️⚪️⚫️ ❤️ 🤠
To this, Lil Las X replied by tweeting that he indeed mentioned Oreo. (Some fans aren’t happy with Oreo’s post though).
Oreo’s official Twitter handle has a reputation for posting fun and engaging content. This brief interaction with the “Old Town Road” singer was just one of the many fun exchanges they have been a part of.

The lyrics that sound like “Oh, here we go, please let me know” are “O………reo”?

The Rodeo we are referring to here shouldn’t be confused with last year’s collaboration between Lil Nas X and Cardi B. The one in question is the remix of the original Rodeo. He joined forces with the American rapper Nas for this version.
This remix version released on January 27, 2020. A day prior to the song’s release, both artists performed this remix at the 62nd edition of Grammy Awards.
