What does Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Drake, Boyz II Men, Madonna, Justin Bieber, and Prince all have in common?

They have no claim on the longest running #1 single ever on the Billboard Charts. Lil Nas X can now declare his single “Old Town Road” as the GOAT single in history, if it is to be judged off Billboard rankings.

On Monday (July 29), Billboard announced that the 20-year-old rapper’s country-trap track had secured its 17th week on the Hot 100 chart, breaking the record first set by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day,” which topped the chart for 16 weeks from December 1995 to March 1996.

The Billboard record was also previously held byLuis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito (Remix),” which tied with “One Sweet Day” for the #1 spot back in 2017.
