UPDATE 4/15/2019 3:50pm ET:Billboard has confirmed that Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus has broken Drake’s record on the Billboard U.S. Streaming Songs chart. Scroll down to read our original report.
“Old Town Road” is projected to hit 80 million on-demand streams in a single week by Hits Daily Double, whereas “God’s Plan” reached “only” 69 million last year. To be fair to Drake, this is including both the original track and the Billy Ray Cyrus remix.
The country-trap song seems to only be getting more popular. Earlier in the week it became the #1 song on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart. Shortly after, Young Thug teased a remix of the track, and then posted a photo of himself with Lil Nas X.
