Months ago we blogged about how Lil Nas X made the most Alt song of the year by combining country and trap, and now it turns out he also made the most popular song of all time by some metrics, as he's broken the Billboard Hot 100 record for most weeks at number 1.  17 weeks to be exact, beating out tracks by Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber, and more. Already he's launched a second single, Panini, which interpolates the classic Nirvana hit "In Bloom", which, who knows, may soon have a run of it's own.   For now, enjoy both for yourself, below.
