Last week, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus)” scored a record 17th week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

This week, it extends that record to 18 weeks.

The smash hit indeed leverages its massive streaming, strong sales and solid radio presence to retain its standing as America’s #1 song.

Its closest competition again comes from Billie Eilish’s “bad guy.” Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s “Señorita” holds at #3, while Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” rises one spot to a new peak of #4.

Khalid’s “Talk” concurrently slides one place to #5.
