The Reign of 'Old Town Road' Has Officially Ended

Billie Eilish Finally Beats Lil Nas X's

Billie Eilish has knocked Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" from the No. 1 atop the Hot 100.

Goth-tinged pop star Billie Eilish has made history as the first artist born in this century to land a No. 1 song - Bad Guy, in this case - on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was still king up until today, but Billie Eilish has officially dethroned the single with her own massive hit, "Bad Guy".

If Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus return to the top spot, they will become the first in U.S. history to rule the Hot 100 for 20 weeks.

Obviously, there's no ill will between the two young popstars. "LMAO" she wrote in another, referring to up-and-coming rapper Lil Nas X.

1 position, Eilish released the single back in March alongside the release of her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? It's the longest-leading United Kingdom chart-topper of all time, recently overtaking Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's One Sweet Day, which held the record for 24 years.

We extend Billie the same congratulations!

Eilish's breakthrough ends an unbelievable chart run that saw Lil Nas X set the record for the longest time a song has spent at number one in the States. "Your persistence paid off".

Lil Nas X later joked that he would be dropped from his record label after losing the No. 1 spot to Eilish.
