Questions about mounting a 65 inch TV to metal studs

I recently moved, and after unpacking and starting to get situated, I went to mount my TV in my living room.

When I drilled a hole to find the stud, I discovered it was a metal stud, so the process isn't something I have experience with because I know you have to mount it to the wall differently if you have a metal stud, you can't just do a lag bolt like I would have if it was wooden.

My concern, however, it that my wall mount is vertical and swivels, and only drills into a single stud to minimize on space.

So my main question is, can a single metal stud support the weight, or do I need to buy a completely new mount? The TV itself weighs 56 pounds and the mount is 9 pounds, so about 65 pound all together.
