Yesterday, openly gay rapper Lil Nas X made music history when his super-popular, viral smash hit "Old Town Road" became the longest-running #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart

The record was previously held by singer-songwriter and pop legend Mariah Carey, when her classic collaboration with Boyz II Men, "One Sweet Day" topped the Hot 100 for a whopping 16 consecutive weeks from late 1995 to early 1996.

Like a class act, Mariah took to Twitter to congratulate the 20-year-old on his achievement.

"Sending love & congrats to @LilNasX on breaking one of the longest running records in music history!" Mimi tweeted after the news of Lil Nas X smashing the record broke. "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!"

"Wowwww thank you so much Mariah!" he replied. "You are a legend and an icon and I’m blessed to even have you acknowledging me right now! Growing up to your music & now having you talk to me directly is unreal!"

But Mariah wasn't the only person to congratulate the "Old Town Road" singer: 

We love legends supporting legends!
