After a record 19 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, the song of Summer 2019, Old Town Road, has been dethroned. Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy took the title this week after a record nine weeks in the No. 2 spot. A remix of the song featuring Justin Bieber failed to push the song to the top of the chart, but some speculate that the “vertical video” released last week is what gave the single the final push. This first No. 1 hit for Eilish also makes her the first artist born this century to reach No. 1. And it’s probably not the last time we’ll see her trying new approaches to both her music and how it’s promoted or the last time we’ll see her on top.
