Lil Nas X Is on The Brink Of History

July 22, 2019

It’s been a great summer for Lil Nas X. 

The rapper has appeared atop Billboard’s charts for 16 weeks, matching Mariah Carey and Luis Fonsi’s records. 

“Old Town Road,” which Lil Nas X has remixed several times, topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for the 16th straight week, the Associated Press reported. “One Sweet Day” and “Despacito” were the last songs to reach that mark. 

A song hasn’t been atop the chart for more than 16 weeks. 

The hit single was removed from Billboard’s country charts after its release. 

Lil Nas X celebrated the feat on Twitter, writing “me on the internet this whole week tryna break the billboard record” with a SpongeBob video attached.
