Some weren’t sure if it would happen, but after a HISTORICAL 19 weeks on the charts, “Old Town Road” has been surpassed by Eilish’s “bad guy”.

During his reign in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, Lil Nas X released his debut EP 7, and broke countless records, and also very bravely came out to world. Lil Nas also beat out Mariah Carey’s “One Sweet Day”; and now sets the record for the longest running No. 1 single of all time.

Billie Eilish’s “bad guy” was right on “Old Town Road”‘s heels and after 5 month’s she’s have her time to shine. Billboard announced the news via Twitter today.

According to Billboard, Billie has also broken a record of her own.

All good things must come to an end and Lil Nas X is accepting defeat in the classiest of ways. He has already congratulated Billie Eilish on passing him to earn the top spot on the Hot 100, breaking a few records of her own. According to Billboard, Eilish is the first artist born in the 2000s to net a No. 1 single. Insiders believe that Columbia Records’ push to promote “Panini” over “Old Town Road” marked the end of its run at the top. Still, Lil Nas X is succeeding on more than one front. “Old Town Road” is still on top of the separate hip-hop chart.

Like the class man Lil Nas X is he took to his own account to congratulate Billie on the milestone.

Despite no longer being on top of the Hot 100, “Old Town Road” is still reigning on a separate the hip-hop chart. And in his true troll fashion, he made sure after the proper congrats to Eilish he went out with a bang. Despite what some said about him being a one hit wonder when his track first debuted, something tells me this won’t be the last we see of this cowboy.
