Viral Country Rap song ‘Old Town Road’ by Lil Nas X breaks Billboard Chart record

Country rap song ‘Old Town Road’ by artist Lil Nas X has broken the record for the longest time at the top of the US singles chart.

The viral hit which was remixed with Country music legend Billy Ray Cyrus has now topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 17 weeks.

‘Old Town Road’ has had 72.5 million US streams and 46,000 downloads in the past seven days. All the different versions of the song are close enough to the original, and so count towards one single total.

The track beat the previous 16-week record, held jointly by the 2017 version of ‘Despacito’, by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber, as well as Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s 1995 track ‘One Sweet Day’, reported BBC.

Billie Eilish’s song ‘Bad Guy’ remains number two in the US charts for the seventh straight week, unable to topple ‘Old Town Road’ from its place.

Lil Nas X real name Montero Lamar Hill was an unknown artist who first released the track on Soundcloud in December 2018.

As reported by The Sauce, in March, the song was controversially removed from Billboard’s country chart in the US despite reaching the top 20 for allegedly not doing enough to “embrace enough elements of today’s country music”.

The song has a new remix dubbed ‘Seoul Town Road’ which features K-Pop star RM from the poplar BTS group. The new remix has over 7 million views since its release 5 days ago while the Bill Ray Cyrus remix has garnered over 20 million views on YouTube.
