RIAA: Lil Nas X’s ‘Industry Baby’ Certified Gold in Less Than a Month

Published: Friday 20th Aug 2021 by Rashad

While the shock (and success) of Lil Nas X‘s March-released single, ‘Call Me By Your Name,’ has yet to wear off, the 22-year-old followed up with another whammy – the Jack Harlow-assisted ‘Industry Baby.’

As both songs continue to enjoy time in the Hot 100’s top 10 (as we reported here), the latter has – according to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) –  earned a new accolade for its ongoing chart triumphs.

Details inside:

On Tuesday (August 17), the RIAA took to press to announce ‘Baby’ – the latest single from LNX’s forthcoming debut album ‘Montero’ – had crossed its threshold for Gold certification.  This means it’s sold the equivalent of 500,000 copies in the United States since its July 23 release.

‘Baby’ becomes the sixth tune of his career to earn such honor, and follows the success of previous megahits ‘Call Me By Your Name,’ ‘Old Town Road,’ ‘Panini,’ and others.  Its enduring success serves as yet another indication of fan anticipation for the singer-rapper’s forthcoming LP, which he reports is slated to drop in the coming weeks.

    This song was released a week after wild side. What does that tell you Normani stans. Looks like another flop single. Only this time it was her own money put into video.

    With such an in-yo-face title, he knew to whom he was pandering: his label’s payola department. 🚮
