Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” is one of the hottest songs of 2019. Although the song has been certified three-times platinum, it’s not yet gone diamond as he and Chart Data announced.
On Wednesday, the popular Chart Data Twitter account tweeted that “Old Town Road” was now a certified diamond-selling single. Lil Nas X quickly seconded this news by tweeting, “OLD TOWN ROAD JUST WENT DIAMOND!!!! WTFFFFFF.”
