From one Gen Z-er to the next, Billie Eilish has officially replaced Lil Nas X at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Eilish's haunting pop song "bad guy" has officially ended the 19-week streak of "Old Town Road" at No. 1.

While "Old Town Road" still holds the title of longest-running No. 1 single in the history of the Hot 100, "bad guy" marks a new first in the chart's history as well. At 17 years old, Eilish is now the first artist born in this century to score a No. 1 song on the chart.
