Written by KingCnote on April 17, 2019
Lil Nas X‘s crossover hit “Old Town Road” just smashed a streaming record previously held by Drake.
“Old Town Road” managed to rack up 143 million streams in the U.S. in just a week, eclipsing the record Drake’s “In My Feelings” set with 116.2 million streams last July. One thing that helped “Old Town Road”’s position on the charts was a certified country remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.Billboard counted both versions towards the track’s chart placement, which resulted in two weeks and counting atop the Hot 100.
