Plenty of artists have remixed the track including Young Thug and Mason Ramsey, Billy Ray Cyrus, and more. Dolly Parton has also spoken about creating her own verse for the song, Jack White has given the track his seal of approval, and Miley Cyrus welcomed Lil Nas X and her dad to perform at Glastonbury.

Blondie is actually out touring with Elvis Costello across the United States. Costello, alongside The Imposters, have been performing hits like “Pump It Up,” “High Fidelity,” “Accidents Will Happen,” “Beyond Belief,” “Watching the Detectives,” and more!
