See where the artist ranks among remaining singers
Numbers of Old Town Road are phenomenal. Over 2.45 billion on Spotify, 3.45 billion on YouTube, top results in Asian platforms, and 2.6 million downloads, these are terrific numbers by 2019 standards.
Yet, Lil Nas X managed to avoid the one-hit wonder tag. Panini and then Montero (Call Me by Your Name) and Industry Baby smashed, adding for 4.85 million equivalent album sales. That’s What I Want has been a hit too.
With a tiny catalog and next to no physical record released, the hip hop star records 11.23 million equivalent album sales to date.
