ST. LOUIS (KNOU) - Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road' has led the Billboard Hot 100 for the 19th week in a row.

With school starting up again, a Joseph Arthur Middle School principal from O'Fallon, Ill. named Tron Young decided to put his own spin on the hit song to get students excited for the upcoming school year.

“We are a community school and we want to go to the neighborhoods where the students are to let them know we’re part of the same family,” said Young, a Centralia native beginning his third year in O’Fallon District 104. “I want to make school a place where students want to be at and enjoy.”

The video is going viral as students and parents everywhere are thrilled to see an enthusiastic educator such as Dr. Young "create an environment that they enjoy coming to." 

"Can't no students tell him nothing" as Dr Young is determined to make this school year one for the books at Joseph Arthur Middle School.
