The musician has nabbed the top spot for the 16th week running, meaning he and Billy Ray Cyrus are now tied with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito”, featuring Justin Bieber, and Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day” for the most time in the No. 1 spot.

Lil Nas X recently reached out to Carey to record a remix of his smash hit track.
