Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road makes music history!

By Bandook - July 30, 2019

The two things that we absolutely love about Lil Nas X is his hilarious Twitter feed and the fact that he has set the record on Monday for the longest run ever atop the Billboard Hot 100 at 17 consecutive weeks, breaking out of a tie with Mariah Carey’s Boyz II Men collab One Sweet Day and Despacito by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber.

The 20-year-old Atlanta native, better known as Lil Nas X, set a new industry record for his song Old Town Road following a push by Billy Ray Cyrus. The two-and-a-half-minute song became quite a rage on social media and picked up because of its TikTok dances and multiple remixes. This song has broken the record by being longest run for any song atop the chart since it was first introduced in 1958. 

Lil Nas X is one of the biggest genre-bending artists and he has utilised the internet in his stride! There is no doubt that the Internet is going cray-cray over this news.
