The Top Story
Atlanta rapper Lil Nas X has made chart history. His smash hit from 2019, “Old Town Road,” is now the highest-certified song ever by the Recording Industry Association of America.
“Old Town Road” is 14 times platinum – accumulating 14 million in equivalent song units (according to the RIAA, one equivalent song unit equals a single digital song sale or 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams).
Lil Nas X originally released the country-rap song in December 2018; Billboard disqualified “Old Town Road” from the country charts after it reached No. 19 on the Hot Country Songs chart in March 2019, so the burgeoning hip-hop star responded by releasing a remix with country stalwart Billy Ray Cyrus in April 2019.
