Lil Nas X has officially tied the record for having the longest No. 1 record in history on the Billboard Hot 100.
"Old Town Road" reached number 1 again for its week 16 on Monday (July 22), tying it with only two other songs that have achieved that same feat in the almost 61-year history of the table. Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber achieved the feat in 2017 with "Despacito", while "One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men were the first to set the 1995-96 record.

After overcoming the hip-hop charts for 13 weeks, "Old Town Road" surpbaded the three songs that had previously held the record with 12 weeks per piece: "See You Again" by Wiz Khalifa with Charlie Puth in 2015, "The Black Eyed Peas "Boom Boom Pow" in 2009 and Eminem & # 39; s "Lose Yourself" in 2002.
The song has been fueled by its many high profile remixes, with everyone from Billy Ray Cyrus to Young Thug jumping on it, and current conversations about even more to come. Even The country's legend, Dolly Parton, seems interested. in the idea
