Lil Nas X reaches another big-time Billboard chart milestone with "Old Town Road." Lil Nas X, who retained his No. 1 spot from last week, broke Drake's record for most U.S. streams in one week. The viral hit racked up 143 million streams in the U.S. for the week ending April 11, breaking the record for most in a single week. "Old Town Road
" eclipsed Drake's "In My Feelings," which previously set the high mark with 116.2 million streams last July.
"Old Town Road
" benefited greatly from its recent remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus. Streams for the original version and remix were both counted for the track's chart placement.
The tremendous streaming numbers allowed "Old Town Road
" to maintain its top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for the second week in a row. The country trap tune hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 earlier this month after infamously being removed from Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.
