#LilNasX’s #OldTownRoad fastest song in HISTORY to reach DIAMOND status by #RIAA! [DETAILS]

Lil’ Nas X is still out here breaking records and opening doors!

X’s “Old Town Road” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus has officially reached Diamond status. For a song to be certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), it must reach sales (and streaming equivalent sales) of 10 million units.

The country/hip-hop crossover is the first song to be certified diamond by the RIAA in 2019, and is the fastest in history to reach this milestone.

Back in July, “Old Town Road” broke the record for the most time spent atop the Billboard Hot 100, sitting at No. 1 for 19 weeks in a row.

“As an artist building myself up, I’m going to have to continue to make other moments,” Lil Nas X recently told Billboard of life after a smash hit. “But it’s not something that I’m upset about or anything. I mean, maybe when I’m out in public and someone asks for a picture and they’re like, ‘Where is your hat?’ ”

Congrats are in order for this young man indeed!
