This week we’re delving more into the Global Top Ten’s longest tenant – ‘Old Town Road’ – performed by Lil Nas X ft Billy Ray Cyrus.
'Old Town Road' Breaks The Record For The Most Weeks At Number 1 In Canadian History
Just as it did in the U.S, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” earns a seventeenth turn at Number 1 on the Hot 100 in Canada, where it has just broken perhaps the most important chart record there is.
With 17 weeks at Number 1, the country-trap tune is now the longest-running chart-topper in the history of the Canadian Hot 100, which ranks the most popular songs in the country every frame.
“Old Town Road” tied the record for the most frames spent in charge, and at the time, it was on the same level as several other incredibly successful songs.
From here on out, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus have no more records to beat and no other artists to catch up to. It’s unclear if the two musicians stand a chance at living at No. 1 for much longer, but if they do, they will continue to raise the bar higher and higher, potentially making it impossible for others to ever match what they have done.
