Mariah Carey Congratulates Lil Nas X on Breaking Her Song’s Record!

Lil Nas X (and his horse) have taken “Old Town Road” to the top of the charts, and now he’s getting some warm well-wishes a musical legend. Lil Nas X officially broke the record for the longest-running No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 — it’s been sitting in the top spot for 17 weeks! Mariah Carey’s 1995 song “One Sweet Day” with Boyz II Men previously held the title for 16 weeks.

Mariah seemed ready to “pass the torch” to Lil Nas X, as she sent some social media love to the rapper with a picture of her doing that just. The iconic songstress wrote, “Sending love & congrats to @lilnasx on breaking one of the longest running records in music history! We've been blessed to hold this record with a song that means a great deal to @BoyzIIMen and myself and has touched so many. Keep living your best life! ❤ One Sweet Day will always hold a special place in my heart and I want to thank anyone who's ever told me how this song has affected them and their loved ones.”

“Old Town Road” is undeniably one of the summer’s biggest tracks, and Mariah has even expressed interest in collaborating on another remix!

Now that’s an example of artists supporting artists! Who knows? Maybe these two hit-makers will make sweet music together someday soon?
