“Old Town Road” gets longer and longer: 11 weeks at #1

Columbia Records“Old Town Road” just keeps on going: The song by Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus is number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for an 11th week.

“Old Town Road” is also on its third week at #1 on Billboard’s Songs of the Summer. 

Lil Nas’ X’s debut EP, 7, is due out on Friday.

Speaking of Drake, his new collaboration with Chris Brown, “No Guidance,” debuts at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. That gives Drake’s 24th top 10 hit, which ties him with The Beatles. The only artist who’s had more is Madonna, with 38.
