"Old Town Road" Spends 2nd Week at #1 on Billboard Hot 100, Tops Drake's Streaming Record
February 20, 2019
Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" has topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the second week in a row--and broken a streaming record set by Drake less than a year ago. Billboard notes that both versions of "Old Town Road"--Nas X's original recording and the Billy Ray Cyrus remix--combined to log 143 million U.S. streams for the week ending April 11. That tally easily bests the record set by Drake's "In My Feelings" when it logged 116.2 million streams for the week ending July 28, 2018. Those figures also made "Old Town Road" the #1 track on Billboard's Streaming Songs chart for the second consecutive week.
