Lil’ Nas X has easily had the most unexpected rise to success over the past year. In just a matter of a year, he went from being a regular Black kid in his room making music to being one of the most recognizable faces in all of music. With the success of his breakout hit, Lil’ Nas X earned a Diamond Certified plaque and stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for more than a dozen weeks straight.
