Lil Nas X Pushes ‘Panini’ To Platinum Status / Song Blasts Into Hot 100’s Top 5

Published: Wednesday 25th Sep 2019 by Rashad

Thanks to the ongoing success of his sophomore single, ‘Panini,’ rapper/singer Lil Nas X continues to disappoint critics who’d written him off as a “one hit wonder.”

The follow-up to the colossal hit, ‘Old Town Road’ (which shattered Billboard records for longest reigning #1 single), ‘Panini’ – much like its predecessor – is enjoying a run in Billboard’s upper rankings thanks to multiple music videos, a number of remixes, and performances on top tier outlets and award shows in its support.  Being armed with a futuristic, Mike Diva-directed music video hasn’t hurt either as the most refreshed charts reveal the tune’s bounced right into the Hot 100’s top 10.

As if that’s not enough, the new peak is accompanied by news the song has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Details inside:

Landing at #5 on this week’s Hot 100, Billboard reports:

Lil Nas X leaps to his second Hot 100 top 10, after “Old Town Road,” as “Panini” vaults 14-5. The song debuted at No. 16 on the July 16-dated chart and spent the next 10 weeks between Nos. 22 and 40 before roaring to No. 14 (from No. 29) a week ago, fueled by the Sept. 5 premiere of its official video.

Following the Sept. 13 arrival of its DaBaby remix, “Panini” soars 9-2 on Streaming Songs (43.7 million, up 22%, sparking its top Streaming Gainer award win on the Hot 100) and 33-17 on Digital Song Sales (9,000, up 56%). It also enters Radio Songs, up 30% to 22.2 million in all-format audience in the week ending Sept. 22.


The news above followed reports from the RIAA the tune had reached Platinum status, meaning it had “sold” the equivalent of one million units through digital sales and/or streaming.

Its parent project, the ‘7’ EP, was also certified Platinum this week.

    Cue Clarkson hating and comparing him to Camilla Cabello and some nonsense about features.

    #1-The majority of Cubans LEFT in Cuba are Afro-Cubans

    #2-They don’t mess with White passing Cubans like Camilla

    #3-This is about a young Black, Gay man

    #4-I pray his boyfriend will be Black

    He’s a nerdy Black, Gay Man who isn’t trying too hard to be masculine. Just what we need!

    • Clarkson September 26, 2019

      I’m calling out ur bull shìt and bias and u guys hate that shìt.
      Ur a hypocrite.
      Ur hate for a certain artist cant stop the artist from being successful.
      What does Camila’s ancenstry got to do with this post or her success.

      Cubans dont like Camila? Says who?
      Who are u to speak for an entire race. U must be insane.

      • Are You Kidding Me? September 26, 2019

        Or maybe I’m Cuban….?! I’m pretty sure you’re Black and riding hard for a racist makes you a c*o*o*n. If Camilla met you and was in a bad mood, she’d likely call you the n-word as well.

        I don’t really care if Normani made “asian eyes’. First of all, they’re called epicanthal folds. Second of all, they’re not an Asian trait. They’re found in desert-dwelling peoples. It’s to protect the eye from all of the sand and dust as with larger eyelids, they’d need to blink quickly to reduce damage to the cornea. And if Normani’s racist, so is Miley Cyrus. I bet you stan for her too. She also has a nasal voice.

        Evaluate why as a gay man you worship a straight White woman who speaks Spanish, as a deity. I will not address you further.

      • Clarkson September 26, 2019

        If u think I read ur irrelevant opinion then u must be mistaken

        I dont care about ur opinions or views.
        You’re a rat. A lion doesnt concern himself with the opinions of a rat.

        U will probably commit suicide when liar hits the top 20 after Camila’s Saturday night live performance,
        yes Camila is slated to perform on Saturday night live some few weeks from now.
        First fifth harmony member to achieve that career milestone.

        Only serious musicians are allowed to perform on Saturday night live.
        BYE BÌTCH. ✌

      • Tyty September 26, 2019

        You did read it that’s why your dumbass didn’t have a clever rebuttal you’re so stupid it’s laughable. If you didn’t read it why the passionate reply? You think people on this blog are as brainless as you? You need to go sort out your self hate issues. Freak!!!

      • Clarkson September 26, 2019

        “If you didn’t read it why the passionate reply? ”

        U really ur something. U really think I give a shìt about silly people like u. Lol

    • Clarkson Is A Loser September 26, 2019

    • Drip September 26, 2019

      Are you kidding me?! This song isn’t even good

  2. Clarkson September 26, 2019

    “Following the Sept. 13 arrival of its DaBaby remix, “Panini” soars 9-2 on Streaming Songs ”

    Nobody is gonna discredit him, nobody gonna say shìt like can he get a hit on his own without a feature or remix. OKAY.

    Keep the same energy for Camila.

    • Are You Kidding Me? September 26, 2019

      Not even 2 seconds later and you proved me right. You need a hobby.

      • Clarkson September 26, 2019

    This generation is just sad all around. ESPECIALLY MUSICALLY

    • 2bad2bme September 26, 2019

      FOR REAL! They like anything these days. These artists are just proving how dumb people are. Make a song about a panini and it lands in the top 5 on the hot 100. smh

  4. Danny Bey September 26, 2019

    One hit wonder WHERE!?

    • 2bad2bme September 26, 2019

      Ya’ll like anybody who charts high and sell a lot. No quality required.

      • Danny Bey September 26, 2019

        Bish you don’t even know me or what I like. Sit Yo hateful a*s down.

  5. Kurtz September 26, 2019

    I mean he still has no talent. But I’m genuinely happy for him. I thought for sure he would be a one hit wonder.

  6. The Real Princess Jasmine September 26, 2019

    Payola no one is requesting this song

    • Drip September 26, 2019

      Totally agree

  7. XYZ September 26, 2019

    Don’t know, this seems a bit messy to me. Like Payola. Cause I never hear that song nor did I hear anyone say that he likes that song.

    • Queen ?? Missy September 26, 2019

      I said last week and sure there were a few others that said the same. I’m sure he’s not pressed about it.

  8. The Real Princess Jasmine September 26, 2019

    Who is his target audience because I don’t hear any adults or hide school students bumping to his music

  9. Rashad September 26, 2019

    He’s the Iggy of 2019. No way his next album is doing anything

    • High Price September 26, 2019

      You might be right… Everyone has a wave. Look at Fetty wap, and even he called it in a Breakfast club interview.

  10. Blanca Evangilista September 26, 2019

    can we give this energy to artist that are actually out here delivering quality music and not just microwavable short attention span hits. for example, we can give more light to this

  11. Lol September 26, 2019

    He literally has no talent.

  12. JOHNVIDAL September 26, 2019

    I´m surprised because the song is really bad and basic. The first single was cute and I undertood the appeal. It´s one of those songs that won´t be remembered for the quality but hey, it had the ingredients to be a long lasting hit everybody likes. But baby this!? LOL

  13. Danny Bey September 26, 2019

    See this always happens. They root for you when you’re the underdog. But when you start to soar higher than expectations everybody wants to knock you back down. Months ago y’all were all stanning him breaking records, showing the Country racists up, and being gay and black. Now he’s getting more hits and y’all wanna drag him for every little thing and make excuses for his success. I have people.

    • Are You Kidding Me? September 26, 2019

      Facts. Was anybody complaining about Justin Beiber’s pop trash? Nope. The hate sounds about White.

  14. PinotNoir September 26, 2019

    We all were tough on Rebecca Black a few years ago. Considering the current music scene, she’s owed an apology. #SorryBeckyYouWereNotTheWorst
