Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road," featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, has topped Billboard's Hot 100 chart for a 12th straight week.

According to Billboard, the single is just the 20th in the chart's history to reign for at least that long.

The last single to spend at least that many weeks atop the chart was Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, which spent a record-tying 16 weeks on top in 2017.

"Old Town Road" also leads the Streaming Songs chart for a 12th week, with 91.6 million U.S. streams, down 8%, in the week ending June 20, according to Nielsen Music. "Old Town Road" previously broke the record for highest number of streams in a week previously held by Drake's "In My Feelings."

The single also tops the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for a 12th week each and the Songs of the Summer survey for a fourth week.

Lil Nas X released his debut EP 7 on Friday, June 21.
