Since its official release in 2019, Lil Nas X’s breakout struck “Old Town Road” has actually shattered chart records and market conventions alike, earning the viral rapper his very first Grammy wins for a track that triggered a larger cultural conversation about the hallmarks of c and w itself. Galloping to even greater heights in 2021, the partnership with Billy Ray Cyrus has become the most-certified tune in RIAA history.

On Friday (January 9), Nas X shared the news that “Old Town Roadway” had gone 14 x Platinum, supplanting John Legend’s “All of Me” and “Despacito” by Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, and Justin Bieber, both certified 13 x Platinum. “LETS GOOO!” Nas X wrote on Twitter, sharing a meme to celebrate the event. His partner Cyrus expressed gratitude through a post on the platform, composing: “I’m speechless. #OTR is now 14 x platinum and the most qualified song in music history. Thank YOU!”
