Lily Rose Earns First Career RIAA Certification For ‘Villain’
Lily Rose recently celebrated her first-ever RIAA Gold certification for her breakthrough single, “Villain,” for earning over 500,000 combined sales and/or streams. Originally released on Dec. 15, 2020, Rose was presented with her commemorative plaque exactly one year post-release outside her previous employer at Opry Mills mall in Nashville.
“‘Villain’ has changed my life in more ways than one. The morning we wrote it, I had just finished an overnight shift stocking shelves at the mall, and it’s surreal to stand here a year after I released it with over 500,000 units sold, and the incredible writers and my team around me. Every time I step on stage and hear the fans singing my songs back to me, I’m reminded of why I do what I do. But looking at a plaque that says certified Gold with my name next to it? It’s unlike anything I’ve ever felt before,” shares Rose. “The only reason why this is possible is because so many people were able to connect with a song that was so special to me, and for that I’m forever grateful.”
Written by Rose, Mackenzie Carpenter, Kyle Clark and produced by Matt Morrisey, the track first gained traction on TikTok where it skyrocketed to over 5 million views pre-release. Topping the iTunes US all genre chart for six days, the song caught the attention of Back Blocks Music’s Rakiyah Marshall and quickly led to Rose signing her first record deal with Big Loud / Back Blocks Music and Republic Records in January 2021.
Recently named as part of MusicRow’s Next Big Thing Class of 2022, Rose will take on an opening slot on Chris Lane’s nationwide “Fill Them Boots Tour,” kicking off in January 2022.

Closing out 2021, MercyMe garnered Top Christian Artists (No. 8), Top Duo/Group (No. 4), Top Christian Albums Artists (No. 8), Top Christian Digital Songs Artists (No. 4), and Hot Christian Songs Artists (No. 16) positions.
