Will 'Old Town Road' break the all-time Hot100 record? 🤔 Everything you need to know about LilNasX's historic No. 1 run

Will Lil Nas X be able to pull off the unprecedented with his first-ever hit single? What will his competition be? And who is he racing against historically?

Which songs is "Old Town Road" chasing for the all-time record?

In its 14th week, "One Sweet Day" held a 1.3 to 1 points lead over No. 2, Mary J. Blige's "Not Gon Cry," while "Despacito" held a bigger margin over DJ Khaled's Rihanna- and Bryson Tiller-featuring "Wild Thoughts," leading by 1.5 to 1. However, "Old Town Road" has the biggest lead of the three in its 14th week, holding a 1.9 to 1 edge over the current No. 2 single, Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy." (The lead is even bigger than it was in its 13th week at No. 1, when it boasted a 1.8 to 1 advantage.)

lead single "Look What You Made Me Do," which catapulted up from No. 77 after its first full week of tracking.

With its metrics not gaining with any particular velocity, it seems unlikely that "Bad Guy" would be able to close the gap between it and "Old Town Road" in its next few weeks, at least in its current incarnation -- more on that later. The same is true of Khalid's "Talk" and Ed Sheeran's Justin Bieber-featuring "I Don't Care," currently the Nos. 3 and 4 songs on the chart, respectively, neither of which are trending enough in the right direction to mount much of a campaign for No. 1.

One song that was released last Friday (and thus hasn't yet impacted the Hot 100) that might at least get within striking distance of "Old Town Road" is "Goodbyes," from regular chart-topper Post Malone and featured rapper Young Thug. The new song has been No. 1 on Spotify and on iTunes since its debut last Friday (June 4) and figures to have a big debut on next week's Hot 100 -- although its numbers so far don't look to be overwhelming enough to make up for the edge "Road" will undoubtedly have in overall metrics on next week's chart.

out yet that might pose a credible threat to "Old Town Road" at No. 1?

has already spawned one No. 2 hit, in the aforementioned Bieber-featuring "I Don't Care." Subsequent releases from the set haven't fared as well, but the album's guest list does contain such recent chart-toppers as Travis Scott, Camila Cabello and Cardi B -- the last two on the same track -- so a potential major Hot 100 debut from it can't be ruled out completely.
