Billie Eilish Has Knocked LiL Nas X Out of Number One
“Bad Guy” just took the top spot away from reigning king “Old Town Road.”
Nineteen long weeks later, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” has finally been dethroned, after enjoying the record for most weeks ever spent at #1.
The new queen in town is seventeen-year-old Billie Eilish’s practically-whispered, raunchy tune “Bad Guy” (best lyric: “My mommy likes to sing along with me / but she won’t sing this song.” As reported by Billboard, Billie’s track spent nine weeks at #2—but clearly her fans were fed up with coming in second. Billie is breaking records as well, since no song has ever gone to #1 after spending that many weeks at #2.
congratulations to billie eilish!! u deserve this!!

Shockingly, Lil Nas X’s hit isn’t even at #2 anymore. He’s taking the #3 spot, while Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s “Señorita” is sitting pretty in second. If Lil Nas X is pissed, he’s not showing it—in fact, he’s already tweeted his congrats to Eilish.
“Bad Guy,” which was first released in March, got a new vertical video three days ago. See it below.
