Mariah Carey has sent her "love and congrats" to Lil Nas X after he beat her record for the longest-running number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The viral cowboy rapper's mega-hit "Old Town Road" jumped ahead of the 49-year-old superstar's 1995 duet with Boyz II Men, which spent 16 weeks at the top of the chart, as he celebrated his 17th week in the No 1 spot.
Mariah tweeted: "Sending love & congrats to @LilNasX on breaking one of the longest running records in music history! We've been blessed to hold this record with a song that means a great deal to @BoyzIIMen and myself and has touched so many. Keep living your best life! ...
"Thank you for acknowledging this song One Sweet Day will always hold a special place in my heart and I want to thank anyone who's ever told me how this song has affected them and their loved ones. (sic)"
