Still nearly twice as big as any other song, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus)” retains its #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100.

The smash celebrates a 14th week as the #1 song in America. It now moves into a tie for third-longest reign in history; only Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day” and Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber’s “Despacito” enjoyed longer stints as the top song in America (16 weeks each).

“Old Town Road” continues to fare well in the sales, streaming and radio categories that determine Hot 100 positioning.

Billie Eilish’s “bad guy” provides the closest competition at #2, while Khalid’s “Talk” claims #3. Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber’s “I Don’t Care” and Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s “Señorita” follow at #4 and #5, respectively.

— Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” makes a big move this week, rising five places to #6. It becomes Lizzo’s first career Top 10 hit.
