Lil Nas X Keeps Making History
He’s taking over the music industry one “Old Town Road” remix at a time.
With another remix on the horizon (hopefully featuring the iconic Dolly Parton) fans were wondering, what’s next for Lil Nas X. Well, he’s back with another shocker. After breaking barriers and becoming a top country hit, “Old Town Road” has become longest-running Billboard Number One song in U.S chart history now at 17 weeks.
“Old Town Road” took the spot that was once held by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men for their 1996 hit “One Sweet Day”. The icon even took to Instagram to congratulate the 20-year-old on this major accomplishment.
