Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" atop Billboard Hot 100 for 15th week

Lil Nas X's Old Town Road, featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, rules the Billboard Hot 100 for a 15th week, moving to within a week of the record for the most time spent at No. 1 in the chart's six-decade history.
 
Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's Despacito, featuring Justin Bieber, and Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's One Sweet Day each spent a record 16 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in 2017 and 1995-96, respectively.
 
Meanwhile, Lil Nas X extends his stay atop the Australian singles chart as Old Town Road logs a 12th week at No. 1.
 
Old Town Road joins some elite company. 
 
Two other songs have spent 12 weeks at the summit of the ARIA Singles Chart: Eminem's Lose Yourself from December 2002 and Pharrell Williams' Happy in January 2014. 
 
Since the ARIA Charts were first published in 1983, just three tracks have spent more time at No. 1: Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's Despacito (2017) and Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise (1995) both clocked up 13 week, while Ed Sheeran's Shape Of You (from 2017) is the chart king, at 15 weeks.
