After a record-breaking 19 weeks, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” has been displaced atop the Billboard Hot 100.

Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” took the top spot this week, giving the 17-year-old singer her very first No. 1 single.

Lil Nas X hopped on Twitter Monday to congratulate Eilish on her achievement.

“Congratulations to billie eilish!! u deserve this!!,” he wrote.

Billy Ray Cyrus, who appeared on one of the many, many “Old Town Road” remixes also praised Eilish.

“Congratulations @billieeilish,” he wrote. “Well deserved. Your persistence paid off. Thanks everybody. It was a hell of a ride.”

“Old Town Road” previously broke the record for longest time at the top of the Hot 100 chart in July when it passed “One Sweet Day” by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men and “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber, which both topped out at 16 weeks.
