"Old Town Road" is unstoppable. Lil Nas X's smash hit continues to dominate the Billboard Hot 100, as it notched an 18th week atop the chart on Monday (Aug. 5). The 20-year-old is showing no signs of slowing down, but he does take time to enjoy the moment and soak in the accolades with his clever social media commentary. 

"18 WEEKS AT #1," he wrote with a pair of heart and horse emojis along with a photo of himself and Billy Ray Cyrus back-to-back in their cowboy outfits during a scene from the "Old Town Road" music video. 

Though the cowboy hat has become his calling card, the Atlanta native is still catering to other tracks from his 7 EP. Fans can expect the "Panini" video he's long been teasing, as well another possible surprise.

He also hinted at a possible Frank Ocean remix to "C7osure" on Twitter. "U might be on to something," Nas X wrote in response to a fan proposing the idea of the collab.
