Lil Nas X track goes ?

Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’ remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus has officially been certified diamond, making it the first song released in 2019 to do so. Following the news, Lil Nas took to Twitter to celebrate the milestone.

“OLD TOWN ROAD IS OFFICIALLY DIAMOND!! ?????” he tweeted earlier today.

He also tweeted a Spongebob meme in reference to a promise he had jokingly made once the song reached diamond status. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) announced that ‘Old Town Road’ had finally reached diamond status. ‘Old Town Road’ has also become the fastest song in history to go diamond. Other artists who have achieved the diamond status include Justin Bieber (‘Baby’), Elton John (‘Candle In The Wind’), Carly Rae Jepsen (‘Call Me Maybe’), Imagine Dragons (‘Radioactive’), Lady Gaga (‘Poker Face’, ‘Bad Romance’) and Florida Georgia Line (‘Cruise’),etc

‘Old Town Road’ was first released in December 2018 but later went viral on TikTok, and was further boosted after Cyrus contributed his guest verse. In July, their chart-topping country trap crossover broke the record for the longest running country US number One in History. It even knocked off Billie Eilish’s ‘Bad Guy’ off the spot.

Let’s see if Lil Nas X can top this powerful debut track with his next album, considering his talent, that won’t be too hard at all!
