16 weeks is how long newcomer Lil Nas X has held the racehorse that is ‘Old Town Road’ ahead of the competition on the Hot 100.
Keeping the likes of serial hitmakers Taylor Swift, Chris Brown, Drake, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, and many more at bay with the megahit, the steam behind the 20-year-old’s breakout tune has been a mix of controversy, record breaking streaming, and a sh*t ton of remixes (including a new version featuring BTS‘s RM).
Renaming the joint ‘Seoul Town Road,’ in reference to the South Korean capital city of Seoul (where BTS first came together), the move may be just what X needs to edge past Mariah Carey (‘One Sweet Day’) and Luis Fonsi (‘Despacito’) to nab the title for ‘longest run at #1 in Billboard Hot 100 history.’
As we wait with bated breath to find out, look inside to hear the umpteenth remix of ‘Road’ and see who joins Lil Nas in the top 25 on this week’s TGJ Chart Check:
