Lil Nas X continues his chart domination, tying the current record for longest No. 1 streak on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Billboard reports at 16 weeks, Lil Nas X joins the ranks of Mariah Carey who accomplished this feat in 1995 with One Sweet Day and, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s megahit Despacito reaching the 16-week peak in 2017.
If Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ rendition of Old Town Road continues at No. 1 for another week, they set a new record for longest consecutive time in the top spot.
Lil Nas X confidently hopes to break the record, asking fans “what we doing to celebrate the billboard record when we break it yall”
