“Old Town Road” Becomes Most-Certified Song In RIAA History

HISTORY - Kevin Douglas Post

“Old Town Road (Remix)” has been certified a record-breaking 14th time by the RIAA.

Lil Nas X’s remarkably popular 2019 song, “Old Town Road (Remix),” featuring legendary country singer Billy Ray Cyrus has gone 14-times platinum, according to the RIAA. This makes it the most certified song in RIAA history.

“OLD TOWN ROAD IS OFFICIALLY 14 TIMES PLATINUM!,” the rapper wrote on Twitter, Saturday. “MOST PLATINUMS FOR ANY SONG EVER! LETS GOOO!”

“Old Town Road” replaces John Legend’s “All of Me” and Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito,” which are both certified 13x Platinum, as the most certified song of all-time.

This is not the first time “Old Town Road” also set the record for most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 19 consecutive appearances on top in 2019. It was later dethroned by Billie Eilish’s “bad guy.”
