It’s been almost two years since Lil Nas X first blessed the world with his hit “Old Town Road,”
According to billboard,, the remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus became the highest certified song ever by the American Recording Industry Association (RIAA), reaching 14 times platinum status in the United States and carrying 14 million in equivalent songs.
Lil Nas celebrated the huge achievement online by posting a meme about herself in Nancy Pelosi’s office using a photo taken during the siege of the Capitol on Wednesday. “THE OLD TOWN ROAD IS OFFICIALLY 14 TIMES PLATINUM! MOST PLATINUM FOR EVERY SONG FOR EVERYONE!” He wrote.
Cyrus also tweeted about the writer’s event. I’m speechless. #OTR is now 14x platinum and the most certified song in music history “
The viral song replaces “All of Me” by John Legend and “Despacito” by Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi and Justin Bieber, who have been certified 13 times platinum.
Last month, the rap star gave Complex up-to-date information about what’s coming.
“My album in general. The singles and music videos that will be around them,” he said. “The moments I’m going to create with each of them. Some features that I’m working on with other artists. I’m just excited about the whole process and even playing music again.”
