Lil Nas is making a little history with “Old Town Road”. This ode to a video game repeats at the top of the Hot 100 for a second week while crushing the streaming record. The single received a whopping 143M streams last week passing the previous champ (Drake’s “In My Feelings” – 116.2M) like a dragster. Note that both the original and the remix with Miley’s dad count towards the song’s chart placements. This is the first number one for Billy Ray (the last time an artist received their first Hot 100 number one after their daughter already had was Frank Sinatra – although in Frank’s case, he was a star before there even was a Hot 100).
Over on the BB200, Khalid’s “Free Spirit” is number one.
