How long of a record will American rapper Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’ set now, since it broke the record for the longest-running song to be number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts?
This question stems from the hit single being at the number 1 spot on the charts for 17 weeks running, making it the longest-running number 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was tied with Justin Bieber, Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi for ‘Despacito’.
Lil Nas X himself is highly excited from the result of the record being broken. You can see his posts on Twitter,
“CANT NOBODY TELL ME NOTHINNNNNNNNNN”
‘Old Town Road’ has been in heavy rotation since its release in 2018. Since then, it topped the Billboard Country Charts for eight weeks but was removed because according to Billboard, it did not have enough elements of today’s country music in that version. Afterwards, a remix was done and released on April 4 with American County singer Billy Ray Cyrus. According to the washingtonpost.com, the remix was an attempt to re-enter the Billboard Country Charts. Since then, On July 11, Lil Nas X released a new remix of his hit single which features Billy Ray Cyrus, American singer Mason Ramsey and American rapper Young Thug. Other remixes with Dolly Parton and Mariah Carey have been teased as well.
So Ziptocrats, how long of a record will ‘Old Town Road’ set?
