Lil Nas is on top…and there’s nothing his detractors can do about it.
Find out how the multi-faceted performer made over $1 million this month below…Array
Much like his hero Nicki Minaj, Nas has spent the last few months soaring in the face of criticism thanks to the organic support he has received from the general public.
This month, his launch single ‘Old Town Road’ extended its run as one of the biggest songs to impact the last decade after it matched records set by the likes of Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Will Always Love You’ and outlasted/outran singles launched by Pop titans Taylor Swift, Drake, Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran.
How? By generating over $1 million in the United States alone.
Last week, the track’s earnings hummed to the tune of $311,120 in the United States helping it reach the $1 million marker when the income it generated in the two weeks which led up to it were thrown into his sales equation.
Nas (whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill) picked up a share of 25% for writing the song which means he will collect a quarter of all of the money the track earns for life with help from Kobalt…the publishing company he is signed to.
What would you do if you earned as much as money Nas has?
