    The latest mix of OTR dropped today. Featuring Young Thug & the yodelling Wal-Mart kid.. lmao.

    Also 14 weeks at #1! 3 more weeks & TR+AR will end up with credits on a record-breaking hit.

    I was listening to Ghosts again today. One of the best NIN albums still. Funny that one of the tracks turned up this way.

    I think it's kind of fun to sing the "Old Town Road" hook over Every. Single. Ghosts. Track...

    I hope it gets the record and I feel like it will, just because it's been utterly unstoppable. It's created an unpassable ceiling for singles that would otherwise go straight to #1 over the past few months and it's hilarious to see the artists who've failed to make it during this stretch.

    Ugh, Ed Sheeran has released this ‘collaborations’ album and I will be SO pissed off if any of the songs deny Old Town Road it’s record

    Don't you dare me to do something, because I will fucking do it! This is a straight-through recording of me singing along to my vinyl copy, I just edited out the bits where I picked the needle up to drop it on the next track and added some reverb/compression. Now, picture this going on for the entire length of the album and you can see why my co-workers hate me.

    He doesn't have a chance in 2 weeks. The Sheeran/Bieber single dropped down to #6 this past ranking.

    Old Town Road is officially tied for longest-running number 1 hit! Is anyone with a Spotify or something willing to stream the crap out of this just to make sure Justin Bieber doesn't stop it from officially breaking the record?

    Lil Nas teams with K-Pop for Seoul Town Road. Hope this makes it a record!

    So I'm not sure how all this works: do streams count towards this record, or just radio play? Because I will literally make a spotify playlist of all the Old Town Roads and just loop those motherfuckers all week on repeat (with my sound turned off because I don't actually care for the songs,lol) to make this happen.

    This whole thing is too funny to me, and I'm willing to do my part.

    It's official! OTR is the longest-running number 1 hit! It helps that the song is short, which allows room for more streams per day.

    Really warmed up to that song actually and it made me go back and revisit ghosts in its entirety.

    Man, if someone could go back in time to when Trent, Atticus, and co. were doing their experimental jam sessions that would become the tracks of Ghosts, and tell them that 34 Ghosts IV would evolve into the longest running #1 hit, what would they think?

    My daughter loves that song so I did as well. Going to save it for her birthday.

    My hometown has a pretty famous rodeo every summer and we just had it over the weekend. I had predicted to myself that they would use "Old Town Road" for the closing song as people emptied out of the arena, and I was right. My cousins and I were standing out on the lawn (because there's a carnival that happens alongside) and we were dancing and singing to it. Good times.

    Maybe Adrian Belew would have popped his head around the corner and said "Hi! Can I play on this one, too?"

    Nice writeup (from People fucking magazine) about the end of the song's reign at the top of Billboard's Hot 100, including a surprisingly moving Instagram post from Lil' Nas X about the song's origin story told with emoji characters. You guys, 2019 is so fucking bizarre.

    Anyway, he's also this week's upcoming Time fucking magazine cover story. Are You, Lil' Nas X, An Urban Achiever? (that's not the actual headline, of course, but this kinda seems almost like it's out of a Coen Bros. movie plot to me, the whole story is truly surreal)
