Who Has the Longest Number 1 Song Ever?

When it comes to music, the number one spot on the charts is the most coveted position. It is the ultimate sign of success and recognition for an artist. But what is the longest number one song ever? The answer is “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X.

The song was released in April 2019 and quickly became a viral sensation. It was an instant hit, and soon it was topping the charts all over the world. The song was so popular that it eventually made its way to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, where it stayed for an incredible 19 weeks. This is the longest stretch any song has ever held the number one spot.

In addition to its impressive run at the top of the charts, “Old Town Road” also became the fastest song in history to be certified diamond. This means that the song has sold over 10 million copies, making it one of the most successful songs of all time.

The success of “Old Town Road” has inspired other artists to try and break the record. The most recent attempt came from Roddy Ricch, whose song “The Box” charted at No. 1 for 20 weeks. Unfortunately, it was not enough to break the record set by Lil Nas X.

Despite its impressive run at the top of the charts, “Old Town Road” is not the only song to have achieved such success. Other songs, such as “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars, “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran, and “One Sweet Day” by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men, have all held the number one spot for at least 16 weeks.

It is clear that “Old Town Road” is an incredible achievement and will likely remain the longest number one song ever. The song has become an iconic part of pop culture and is a testament to the power of music. It is a reminder that anything is possible with hard work and dedication.
