Lil Nas X took to social media to share a snap of his diamond certification plaque for his collab song Old Town Road, featuring Billy Ray Cyrus. The plaque had finally arrived.
US rapper Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road featuring Billy Ray Cyrus is not only the longest-running number 1 hit in history, it has also been certified diamond status.
For those who don’t know what this means... It’s not easy selling 10 000 000 units or equivalent on this day and age, but Old Town Road broke that record. It has been certified diamond and the only song to do so in 2019.
According to Youredm, the song was first honoured with its diamond certification in October when the song went viral. But Lil Nas X only received his plaque recently, and you’ll never guess it’s size.
Lil Nas X took to Twitter to share a snap of the plaque together with Billy Ray Cyrus and himself holding it. He wrote: "Finally got the plaque. What do you guys think?"
The rapper's tweet gathered more than 237.6k likes and 13.4 retweets.
Here are some of the comments from fans across the world:

Artists get nominated under a few different AMA categories based on their contribution and the rest is left to the public vote.
