Mariah Carey & More Congratulate Lil Nas X on His Record-Breaking Song

Mariah Carey & More Congratulate Lil Nas X on His Record-Breaking Song”

In addition to his first EP released a few weeks ago, the young rapper unveiled a new (and umpteenth) version of his hit.

The record was previously held by singer-songwriter and pop legend Mariah Carey, when her classic collaboration with Boyz II Men, "One Sweet Day" topped the Hot 100 for a whopping 16 consecutive weeks from late 1995 to early 1996. This record has been unbroken for the last 60 years as Lil Nas X song steals an unprecedented 17th week at no. 1 spot.

As long as remixes are in line with the original sound of a song, the streams, downloads and sales are included in one composite number.

Lil Nas X hit back with a picture of himself in a cowboy hat captioned: "Can't say I ain't country". Bad Guy by Billie Eilish is now number 2 on the charts but we like Lizzo and Truth Hurts as having the most potential to stop the streak.

The rapper, a college dropout from Atlanta, whose real name is Montero Hill, recorded the song last October, using a backing track he bought online for $30 (£24.70).

The song's blend of country music and urban influences has made it really popular, becoming one of the hottest songs of the summer.

He said: "I am so thankful that this blessing has been placed upon me".

His breakout song "needed to be amusing, it needed to be catchy, it needed to be hip hop, it needed to be country & it needed to be short", he continued. He described how this song has changed his life and thanked everyone who has been with him from the beginning of his journey.

"Sending love & congrats to @lilnasx on breaking one of the longest running records in music history!" reads the caption of the image posted to her official Instagram account.

Since catapulting to celebrity Lil Nas X has also dropped an EP entitled 7, which includes the original version of Road and its Billy Rae Cyrus remix along with a song featuring rap star Cardi B.

RM's appearance on the track is especially significant because he is the first global artist to be featured on the track and given not only BTS's success in their home country, but also their recent crossover success here in the states, this latest remix may be the final push needed to put "Old Town Road", in the record books.
