Justin Bieber is handing over his Hot 100 crown to Lil Nas X.
Following news that “Old Town Road,” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, officially became the longest-running Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 single of all time, beating the 16-week streak of Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Bieber’s “Despacito,” the crooner took to Twitter to honor the accomplishment.
“@LilNasX congratulations,” Bieber tweeted on Monday (June 29).

Mariah Carey, who also previously held the chart-topping record for her 1995 duet with Boyz II Men, “One Sweet Day,” also tweeted a sweet message to Lil Nas X. “Sending love & congrats to @LilNasX on breaking one of the longest running records in music history!” she wrote with an illustration of her passing the torch. “We’ve been blessed to hold this record with a song that means a great deal to @BoyzIIMen and myself and has touched so many. Keep living your best life!”
