Lil Nas X Says He'll Send Mariah Flowers After This Milestone

Lil Nas X Says He'll Send Mariah Flowers After This Milestone

After holding the Billboard record for 24 years, pop diva Mariah Carey congratulated Lil Nas X for breaking her record with his crossover hit Old Town Road. The country-rap crossover sensation finally beat Mariah Carey and Boys II Men's collaboration "One Sweet Day", which has held the record with 16 weeks in the top slot since 1995-96.

The rise of Old Town Road - and the week-by-week maintenance of its chart position - is in some ways a story of an old-fashioned one-hit wonder, and in some ways a primer on the latest and most effective ways that music is promoted.

I mean, he dropped the RM remix last week, knowing full well that the BTS Army is insanely dedicated and supportive of literally anything that one of their faves touches.

To mark the occasion, Nas shared a post on Instagram, which featured several of the steps along the song's road to total dominance, including enlisting Cyrus for the remix.

I can not stress enough how much you should absolutely not play this in your office's speakers.

"Nas" Hall of Fame achievement is made even sweeter by the fact that Billboard booted him from its "Hot Country Songs" chart in March, disqualifying him for falling outside the crooning genre.

Since then he has shrewdly goosed his numbers by releasing remix after remix of the snappy track, most notably with country star Billy Rae Cyrus, which is the one listed on the Billboard chart.

17 weeks No. 1 Single 'Old Town Road.' 17 weeks No. 1 Album Some Gave All.

"I immediately knew I would make something special out of it", he wrote, later adding, "I jokingly/seriously saw myself as a loner cowboy needing to run away from it all".

"YEEE TF HAWWW", Lil Nas X tweeted after the news broke.

See more on the song below. "When suddenly I came across a country-trap sounding masterpiece", Lil Nas said under a photo of he and Billy Ray Cyrus in the studio. "Keep living your best life!"
