LIl Nas X's country trap meme "Old Town Road" has just spent its 12 week at number one on the Billboard chart
In doing so, it passes Drake's "In My Feelings" for the most weeks straight at number since Despacito" from Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber and"One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men hold the all-time record with 16 weeks.
Number two this week is Taylor Swift's new track "You Need to Calm Down." This marks the second time "Old Town Road" has prevented swift from opening at number, having done the same to "ME!"
In fact, "Old Town Road" has prevented six songs from opening at number one during its 12-week reign.
