Lil Nas X Holds Off Taylor Swift To Stay At Number One

Despite a new single from Taylor Swift, Lil Nas X was able to hold on to number one for yet another week. The rapper’s “Old Town Road,” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, tops the ‘Billboard” Hot 100 and Streaming Songs charts for a fifth week.

  • Elsewhere on the Hot 100, Post Malone’s “Wow” is at three, followed by Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” at four and Post’s and Swae Lee's"Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)" at five. 
  • Rounding out the Top Ten are: Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” at six, Halsey’s “Without Me” at seven, Sam Smith and Normani’s “Dancing With A Stranger” at eight, Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” at nine and Khalid’s“Talk” at ten.
