Taylor Swift’s latest single, “You Need to Calm Down,” has debuted at No. 2 on the Hot 100 and this is because Old Town Road has remained in the same spot for the 12th consecutive week. Lil Nas X’s Old town road just might be the song of the year.The single is just the 20th in the Hot 100’s history to hold the number 1 spot for that long and is the first since Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee spent a record-tying 16 weeks on top with “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber, in 2017.
.@LilNasX's "Old Town Road" has now blocked a record breaking 6 songs from reaching #1 on the Hot 100 (Wow, ME!, If I Can't Have You, I Don't Care, bad guy & YNTCD).
