Currently “Despacito,” by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber and “One Sweet Day,” by Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men hold the record at sixteen weeks. 

On the last night of Pride Month (Jun. 30), Lil Nas X made headlines for his personal life, after implying in a series of cryptic tweets that he was “coming out” as homosexual.
