For the thirteenth week, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus)” ranks as the top song in America.

The smash indeed retains its throne on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, which ranks songs based on sales, streams and radio airplay.

“Old Town Road” remains #1 on the Streaming Songs subchart, while ascending back to #1 on the Digital Song Sales listing. It slips to #4 on Radio Songs.

The closest competition this week comes from Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s debuting “Señorita.” The song ties “If I Can’t Have You” as Mendes’ highest-charting release. It follows the #1 hit “Havana” as Cabello’s second-highest-charting entry.

Billie Eilish’s “bad guy” (#3), Khalid’s “Talk” (#4), and Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber’s “I Don’t Care” (#5) complete the Top 5.
