Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” has now officially spent 16 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, meaning he’s now tied the record for the longest run on top of the chart. The only other songs that have ever spent that long at #1 are “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber, and “One Sweet Day,” by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men. If “Old Town Road” can hang on for one more week, it will set the all-time record for the longest-running #1 in the history of the Hot 100, which spans more than five decades. According to Billboard, it’s quite likely that this will happen.
