Despite the arrival of a new single from pop superstar Taylor Swift, "Old Town Road" rapper Lil Nas X has managed to hold on to his No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for the fifth consecutive week. The remix of the song featuring Billy Ray Cyrus brought in an impressive 104 million streams over the past week, only a 9 percent drop from the week prior.
Taylor Swift's new Brendon Urie-featuring song "Me!" previously charted at No. 98 on the Hot 100 during its first week based on just three days of airplay, Billboard reports, but its first week of streaming and sales launched it to the No. 2 spot. Coincidentally, this makes "Me!" the biggest jump in positions up the chart ever. With a very strong figure of 193,000 downloads in the tracking week, making it her best week for a single song since "Look What You Made Me Do."
As Chart Data points out, "Old Town Road" is also breaking a record by becoming the first song in history to earn over 100 million U.S. streams across four different weeks. It's still currently on track to become one of the "most dominant No. 1" songs of all-time, with four of the six biggest streaming weeks ever.
On the Digital Song Sales chart, "Old Town Road" finally dropped to the No. 2 spot, losing out to the new Swift single. However, he's still comfortably sat at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart.
