“Old Town Road” Makes History As The Longest Running No.1 Song

Lil NasX’s “Old Town Road” has spent 17 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts, making it the longest-running No. 1 song in U.S. chart history, according to a Billboard report.

The hit record “Old Town Road” which features #BillyRayCyrus, has captured the hearts of people nationally and internationally, and now it’s snagged the record for the longest-running No.1 song in U.S. chart history after passing 16 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 list. The song has now surpassed “One Sweet Day” (by #MariahCarey and #BoyzIIMen) and “#Despacito” (by #LuisFonsi and #DaddyYankee, featuring #JustinBieber).

According to Pitchfork, the song initially reached No. 1 back in April right after Lil Nas X shared the Billy Ray Cyrus remix of the track. Afterward, several other remixes of the track were released, which featured artists like #Diplo, #YoungThug and #MasonRamsey, and RM of BTS. #CupcakKe also made her own remix of the song.

The music video for the song debuted in May and starred celebs like #ChrisRock, #VinceStaples, and others. The next month, Lil Nas released his 7 EP, accompanied by singles ”Panini” and ”Rodeo” featuring Cardi B.

Congrats, Lil Nas X!
