Mariah Carey isn’t upset about Lil Nas X breaking her record. 

The rapper’s hit single “Old Town Road” has sat atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 17 straight weeks, making it the first song to do so. 

Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” and Carey’s “One Sweet Day” were the other two songs to top the chart for 16 weeks. 

Carey shared a photo of her passing a torch to Lil Nas X on Instagram. 

“We’ve been blessed to hold this record with a song that means a great deal to @BoyzIIMen and myself and has touched so many,” Carey said in the post. “One sweet day will always hold a special place in my heart…”

Sending love & congrats to @lilnasx on breaking one of the longest running records in music history! We've been blessed to hold this record with a song that means a great deal to @BoyzIIMen and myself and has touched so many.
