The rap star's hit single continues to dominate the charts.

The track, which the rapper performed at the BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night, becomes the first to spend 12 weeks at number one since Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber went on to spend 16 weeks on top with "Despacito" in 2017.

Lil Nas X's crossover hit keeps Taylor Swift off the top of the charts for the second time in a month as her "You Need to Calm Down" hits number two. She previously had to settle for a runner-up spot when "ME!" also missed out on pole position.
