  • Lil Nas X

The viral hit - recently remixed with Billy Ray Cyrus - has now topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 17 weeks.

Lil Nas X's road to success certainly wasn't an easy one. Old Town Road has been soaring ever since, and Lil Nas has dropped additional remixes including one featuring Young Thug and Mason Ramsey. "Did I know it would become the longest running number one song of all time? No!"

As the way we as a society shifts from interacting with music through radio stations and deeper into user-dictated streaming, we can only assume that this record may be beaten again in the near future - so Lil Nas X might not hold the record for as long as Mariah once did.

Old Town Road has had 72.5 million USA streams and 46,000 downloads in the past seven days.

Songs have come close to displacing Old Town Road from the top spot, including Billie Eilish's Bad Guy and a pair of Taylor Swift singles, but ultimately were unsuccessful. To dig a knife into Billboard's side, the musician reached out to one-hit wonder Billy Ray Cyrus to lend a chorus to the track, and soon thereafter, a pristine, honky-tonkified remix hit the market. Since then, it's been the song, ruling atop the Billboard chart like a medieval king over his kingdom.

His breakout song "needed to be amusing, it needed to be catchy, it needed to be hip hop, it needed to be country & it needed to be short", he continued. 17 weeks No. 1 Single 'Old Town Road.' 17 weeks No. 1 Album Some Gave All.

Asked earlier this month whether she was anxious about the prospect of losing her record to the novice artist, diva Carey deadpanned: "Darling, no". The previous record of 16 weeks was set by Carey and Boyz II Men with "One Sweet Day" in 1995 and 1996, and in 2017, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito", featuring Justin Bieber, tied it. Lil Nas X told TMZ last week that if he beat the record, "I may buy Mariah Carey some roses and send them to her because I love her". "Keep living your best life!".
