Lil Nas X’s juggernaut “Old Town Road (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus)” continues its impressive run atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The single, which again posted mammoth streaming, sales and radio numbers, celebrates a ninth consecutive week as America’s #1 song. In reaching nine weeks at #1, “Old Town Road” breaks the tie with Ariana Grande’s “7 rings” to become the longest-reigning leader of 2019.

Confirming its dominance, Billboard notes that “Old Town Road” received nearly 3x as many chart points as this week’s #2 song.

Billie Eilish’s “bad guy,” which was #3 last week, moves into the #2 position this week.

Khalid’s “Talk” concurrently rises two spots to #3, while Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber’s “I Don’t Care” slides two spots to #4. Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” dips one place to #5.
