That Mexican OT Announces “Lonestar Luchador Tour,” Shares “Cowboy Killer” Video

Published

on

Dripping with natural charisma and captivating rhyming talent, That Mexican OT is one of 2023’s most promising breakthrough stars. Preparing to take his show on the road, the Bay City, TX native announces the Lonestar Luchador Tour.” Commencing on September 10th in Denver, CO, the “Lonestar Luchador Tour” criss-crosses the country for 19 dates, stopping in New York (S.O.B.’s), Atlanta (Vinyl), and Los Angeles (The Echo) before concluding in Oakland on October 4th. Featuring support from DRODi, who along with Paul Wall has a guest verse on That Mexican OT’s Billboard Hot 100 hitJohnny Dang,” the tour promises the first-ever performances of songs from OT’s brand new album Lonestar Luchador. Tickets for the “Lonestar Luchador Tour” are available at ThatMexicanOT.net

Along with the tour announcement, OT shares the video for Cowboy Killer,” a highlight from Lonestar Luchador. Kicking off with vamping saloon piano, “Cowboy Killer” takes inspiration from Vaudeville theater and old-school Country murder ballads, allowing OT to show off his gritty singing voice and embrace his villain persona. By the time he switches from his haunting melodies to fast-paced rhymes, OT has established himself as the most-wanted man in the Lone Star State: “Yes I talk sh*t bout the devil, but no I ain’t any better,” croons OT through a diamond-studded grin. In the video, OT rides his trusty steed through the Texas countryside, as he enjoys his life outside the law.

A concept album that draws parallels between the rap game and the high-flying world of Mexican wrestling, Lonestar Luchador is an ambitious effort that incorporates a world of wide-ranging influences and sharp pop cultural references into OT’s Texas-fried sound. The new album is stacked with Houston-style trap anthems, including the furious Maxo Kream duet “Opp Or 2,” and the chopped-n-screwed lothario’s anthem “OMG,” but the Bay City, Texas native (or as he calls it, “Be Careful Texas”) has many more tricks up his sleeve. Recently-released single “Barrio” ft. Lefty SM (which racked up 1.1 million YouTube views and placed in the Top 10 of YouTube’s Trending chart) is a bilingual banger, borrowing acoustic guitar, guitarrón (six-string Mexican bass) and a waltz time signature from regional Mexican corridos, while “Cowboy In New York” transposes OT’s soulfully-accented stick talk to a classic Queensbridge sound. Featuring additional guest appearances from BigXThaPlug and Big Yavo, with production from Bankroll Got ItJonnyshipes, and more, Lonestar Luchador is available everywhere via Manifest/GoodTalk/Good Money Global.

Lonestar Luchador arrives hot on the heels of “Johnny Dang,” That Mexican OT’s breakout hit, released earlier this summer. First gathering heat as a snippet on TikTok and Instagram (generating over 11 million views across the two platforms), “Johnny Dang” has become a sensation, garnering over 23 million Spotify streams and 14 million YouTube views in just six weeks. The Paul Wall and Drodi-featuring song has spent weeks in the top ten of Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50 chart, and just this week, hit a new #96 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “Johnny Dang” also currently sits at No. 19 on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs and at No. 27 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. OT’s “From The Ranch” version of “Johnny Dang” recently caught viral traction on Twitter, inspiring “From The Block” filmmaker AZae to bring OT back for a second “From The Ranch,” this time for a performance of “Cowboy Kilelr”. That Mexican OT was recently the cover artist for Spotify’s “Most Necessary” Playlist, which features both “Johnny Dang” and “Barrio.”

With “Johnny Dang” climbing charts,  Lonestar Luchador out now, and a tour on the way, That Mexican OT is ready leap from the top rope and become a rap superstar. Stay tuned as OT bursts out of the Houston scene to take over the mainstream.
