This week, Lil Nas X made music history as “Old Town Road” remained the number one song in the country for a record 17th week in a row! No song has ever had this feat, and the previous title holder happened all the way back in the 90’s with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men‘s “One Sweet Day!”
How did Mimi respond? Graciously, of course! Check out Mariah’s thoughtful word as she passes the torch to Lil Nas X as he riiiiiiiides til he can’t no more.
Sending love & congrats to @LilNasX on breaking one of the longest running records in music history! We've been blessed to hold this record with a song that means a great deal to @BoyzIIMen and myself and has touched so many. Keep living your best life! ❤ pic.twitter.com/3YorLCg3lx
