Icon Mariah Carey graciously congratulates Lil Nas X for breaking her Billboard record

Mariah Carey has congratulated Lil Nas X for overtaking her hit ‘One Sweet Day’ as the longest-running number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The viral cowboy rapper’s mega-hit ‘Old Town Road’ jumped ahead of the 49-year-old superstar’s 1995 duet with Boyz II Men, which spent 16 weeks at the top of the chart, as he celebrated his 17th week in the No.1 spot. Carey took to social media to congratulate Lil Nas X.

She went on to add, “Thank you for acknowledging this song One Sweet Day will always hold a special place in my heart and I want to thank anyone who’s ever told me how this song has affected them and their loved ones. (sic)”

The 20-year-old star replied immediately and hailed the ‘We Belong Together’ hitmaker a “legend and an icon”, whilst he admitted it was surreal getting a message from his idol.

Retweeting Mariah’s post, he added: “wowwww thank you so much, Mariah! you are a legend and an icon and I’m blessed to even have you acknowledging me right now!”

Lil Nas also penned a poignant post on his Instagram account to mark the milestone, as reported by The Sauce.

Punctuated with emojis, he wrote on Instagram: “On December 2nd I went into the studio & recorded OLD TOWN ROAD & put it out the exact same day!! did I know it would become the longest-running number 1 song of all time? NO!

In 2017, Mariah’s feat became tied with ‘Despacito’ by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber.
