See where the artist ranks among remaining singers

Numbers of Old Town Road are phenomenal. Over 2.2 billion on Spotify, 3.15 billion on YouTube, top results in Asian platforms, and 2.6 million downloads, a terrific number by 2019 standards.

Yet, Lil Nas X managed to avoid the one-hit wonder tag. Panini and Montero (Call Me by Your Name) add for 2 million equivalent album sales, while Industry Baby and That’s What I Want are currently #2 and #9 globally on Spotify.

Don’t rule out Holiday returning to charts this winter.

With a tiny catalog and next to no physical record released, the hip hop star records 6.6 million equivalent album sales to date.

No idea who that is. Patiently waiting for Iron Maiden.


You will definitely know old town road and maybe montero. Anyway, I’m excited for Iron Maiden too!


I was wondering why I can’t log in yesterday. My WiFi conditions are the same with yesterday but now I can log in?


Do Kanye west, xxntentacion or Travis scoot


i think xxxtentacion and travis scott will come pretty soon, but kanye’s discography is too large for a light cspc so he has to be voted for her:

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
