The song has spent the past 16 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It has now tied for longest consecutive time at the number one spot, with only two other songs holding the record.

It's unclear if he also got the entire restaurant another round of those delicious cheddar bay biscuits.

The other two songs include the 1995 Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men song “One Sweet Day” and 2017’s “Despacito” remix with Justin Bieber.

The 20-year-old rapper, who came out as gay during Pride Month, recently sat down with the BBC. He talked about how the internet trolls don’t bother him in the slightest and the response he received following the revelation.

Lil Nas X told the hosts his recent coming out was not something he originally planned. He said, “It was just something I was considering just like never doing ever. Just like taking to the grave. But it was like I don’t want to just live my entire life ... not doing what I want to do."

He added, “I also feel like i'm opening the doors for more people.”

One of the BBC hosts called him a role model and he responded saying he hopes, “they feel more comfortable, pretty much.” He pointed out that in both the County and Hip-Hop communities being gay is “not really accepted in either.”

He was questioned on whether he was getting backlash and he was honest saying it was happening. He said he has really learned the internet the past couple of years, and he even used to be that person online being negative.

Lil Nas X said he was not angry with those who have negative things to say about him being gay. He said, “I’m not angry, I understand how they just want that reaction. But I’m just gonna joke back.”

As we reported, he has also been getting support from big celebrities who have come to the star's defense over homophobic remarks.
