On Monday, Billie Eilish earned her first No. 1 single on the Hot 100 chart with “Bad Guy,” officially dethroning Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus‘ summer hit “Old Town Road” after 19 weeks.
The rapper, 20, congratulated Eilish on Twitter, writing, “U deserve this!”
And the country singer also sent a message of congratulations. “@billieeilish Well deserved. Your persistence paid off. Thanks everybody. It was a hell of a ride,” the father of Miley Cyrus wrote on Twitter.

In late July, “Old Town Road” made history by becoming the longest-running No. 1 single to ever top the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
Lil Nas X thanked his fans and followers in a lengthy Instagram post, recalling how he was a “struggling artist” less than a year ago and sharing how his life has drastically changed for the better.
“Did I know it would become the longest running number 1️⃣ song of all time? NO! but I am so thankful that this blessing has been placed upon me,” he shared. “This song has changed my life and the way I see the world around me in less than a year.”View this post on Instagram
