Lil Nas X is the new king of Billboard.

Lil Nas X’s viral hit, “Old Town Road,” just beat Mariah Carey and Luis Fonsi’s records for the most weeks spent at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Internet sensation has now topped the chart for 19 weeks, beating out “One Sweet Day” and “Despacito,” who ruled the top spot for 16 weeks in 1995/1996 and 2017, respectively.

LNX recently dropped another remix of it featuring K-Pop super group BTS’ member, RM, called “Seoul Town Road.”

Previous collabs include Billy Ray Cyrus on the original remix, Diplo, Young Thug and Mason Ramsey.

The year is 2040, every song charting on the Hot 100 is a remix of “Old Town Road,” and it’s the only track offered on Spotify. Good night.
