Lil Nas X’s hit song “Old Town Road” has officially broken the record for longest time spent atop the Billboard Hot 100 now in its 17th week. The previous record holder was “Despacito” by Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi featuring Justin Bieber which broke the record only a few years ago.
Although “Old Town Road” initially struggled to stay in the charts, a quick remix with Billy Ray Cyrus catapulted it to the top. Following the success of the remixed version, Lil Nas X continued to pump out remixes with various artists, keeping the song relevant and eventually allowing it to break the record.
