‘Old Town Road’ is having one hell of a run.
For the 12th consecutive week, Lil Nas X’s hit holds on to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 11.
Interestingly, the massive hit has stopped chart titan Taylor Swift from taking the spot again.
Swift’s latest single, “You Need to Calm Down,” has debuted at No. 2 on the Hot 100, while her song “Me!” previously debuted behind “Old Town Road” at No. 2. In fact, as Chart Data points out on Twitter, “Old Town Road” has blocked six songs from reaching No. 1 since it first entered the chart in April.
Congrats to Lil Nas X!
