American citizens are set to have a new President of the United States. Democratic Former Vice President Joe Biden is headed to the White House in 2021 after defeating incumbent Republican Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
People across the country took to the streets in joy following the announcement that Biden won the race and Trump would only be a one-term president. 2016’s “FDT (F### Donald Trump)” by YG featuring the late Nipsey Hussle became an official anthem of the 2020 celebrations.
Billboard reports that “FDT” saw a 740% jump in sales on November 7, the day the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris ticket earned enough Electoral College votes to secure the overall victory by winning Pennsylvania. An increase in sales for “FDT” actually started on Election Day (November 3).
The Still Brazy track was downloaded 3,000 times on November 7. On that date, YG and Nipsey’s song rose to #1 on the iTunes chart around an hour after Biden was named the winner. “FDT” re-entered the Spotify Top 200 Daily U.S. chart at #10 with 799,928 streams.
In addition, Mary J. Blige’s “Work That” off the 2007 album Growing Pains experienced a significant rise in sales. The Queen of Hip Hop Soul’s single was downloaded 2,000 times on November 7 after “Work That” became the soundtrack for Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris’s acceptance speech on Saturday night.
