Billie Eilish Just Knocked ‘Old Town Road’ From The Top Of The Billboard Charts

For nineteen straight weeks, Lil Nas X has absolutely ruled the Billboard Hot 100, ironically remaining at the top of the chart after the higher-ups deemed he was "not country enough" to remain on the list in its early stages.

One of Lil Nas X's many "Old Town Road" remix collaborators, Billy Ray Cyrus, also penned a congratulatory note to Eilish on Twitter and thanked supporters for "a hell of a ride". The song has become something of a phenomenon, even earning Lil Nas X a Time magazine cover. The fifth release from Eilish's album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? bears the distinction of knocking the longest-running song of all time from the No. 1 spot. After lurking consistently in the No. 2 spot for nine weeks - longer than any other runner-up in history - "Bad Guy's" new chart-topping status marks the singer's first No. 1 hit. The country hip-hop fusion held the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for an incredible 19 weeks.

At 17, Eilish is also the youngest artist to reach No. 1 since Lorde's 2013 song Royals spent nine weeks at the top when she was 16.

The rapper, 20, congratulated Eilish on Twitter, writing, "U deserve this!"

Meanwhile, Old Town Road has dropped to No. 3 while Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello rise to No. 2 with Señorita.
