Not bad for a young buck…
Billboard announced Monday that “Old Town Road” — the left-field country-trap smash by 20-year-old Lil Nas X — has held on to its spot atop the Hot 100 for a record 17th week.
The placement makes “Old Town Road” the longest-running No. 1 hit in Billboard history, having outlasted two songs that each spent 16 weeks dominating the music industry’s most closely watched singles chart: Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day,” from 1995, and “Despacito,” the Latin-pop juggernaut by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber.
