American rapper, singer, and songwriter Lil Nas X rose to stardom with the release of his country infused hip hop track “Old Town Road” and now he’s made history with it.
His unprecedented success has seen him climb to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and maintain his position for 13 consecutive weeks. This makes “Old Town Road” the longest-running hip-hop song to claim the top spot. It has eclipsed Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow,” Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s “See You Again,” and Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”
