Lil Nas X breaks another record

Lil Nas X has achieved two new records on the Billboard charts thanks to the massive success of ‘Old Town Road.’

The song that beat out Mariah Carey and ‘Despacito’ to become the longest-running no. 1 hit in the history of the Hot 100 chart has now set records on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs and Hot Rap songs charts, respectively.

‘Old Town Road’ which features Billy Ray Cyrus and is spending its 19th week at no. 1, surpasses the record set by Drake's ‘One Dance’ on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart. Drake's track spent 18 weeks at no.1.

The song, which is a former no.1 on the Coca-Cola Top40SA with Carl Wastie, charted this past weekend (17 Aug 2019) at no.9 on the Kfm 94.5 chart.
