Lil Nas X congratulated Billie Eilish and shared a meme about his standing at Columbia Records now that 'Old Town Road' has been dethroned by 'Bad Guy' as the number 1 single.
Lil Nas X has reigned supreme this year with his viral hit, 'Old Town Road'. Despite initially being denied a country charting position in March, 'Old Town Road' went on to break Mariah Carey's 'One Sweet Day' record for longest time spend at number 1. Now, Billie Eilish's 'Bad Guy' has knocked 'Old Town Road' from atop its record-breaking throne and Lil Nas X's reaction to losing his number one spot is priceless.
On Monday 19 August, Lil Nas X tweeted his congratulations to the 17-year-old star, writing: "congratulations to billie eilish!! u deserve this!!"

Billie Eilish released 'Bad Guy' as a single back in March. The music video for the song has been viewed nearly 500 million time at time of publication.
Billie responded to Lil Nas X's tweet on Instagram Stories, writing "I know he mad on the low....LMAO BUT THANK YOU B! LOVE YOU @lilnasx".
Lil Nas X then followed up his congratulatory tweet with a savagely hilarious meme about his record label dropping him now that 'Old Town Road' was no longer number one. Fingers crossed they keep our country rap king for as long as possible.

Of course, Lil Nas X fans have plenty of new music to enjoy and look forward to. Coincidentally, Lil Nas X told PopBuzz back in July that he thought Billie was "great" and "amazing", hinting that he'd be interested in working with her in the future.
Honestly, we would like to see it.
Meanwhile, Billie nabbing the number 1 spot from Lil Nas X means that she is the first person born after the year 2000 to have a number 1 single. And in April, she became the first person born after 2000 to have a number 1 album with WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?
Billie Eilish and Liil Nas X are both having one hell of a year and they clearly can't be stopped.
