In just one sweet week, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” may notch its 17th consecutive week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100–besting a record set back in the ’90s by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men with “One Sweet Day.” So how would the rapper celebrate? “You know, instead of doing my usual crying in the bathtub for five hours, I’m gonna cut it down to three,” Lil Nas jokingly told a TMZ videographer this past weekend. He then added, “I may buy Mariah Carey some roses and send them to her. ‘Cuz I love her.” Earlier this month, Lil Nas joked about doing another remix of his smash hit with the pop diva, tweeting, “OK Mariah, let’s get this remix in.” But Mariah told TMZ this pats weekend, “No one wants to hear that remix.” When asked if she was worried about Lil Nas X beating her Billboardrecord, she added, “Darling, no.”
