Are we actually surprised a couple of songs jumped back into iTunes Top charts after the weekend we just had with the reveal of our next President Joe Biden?
YG and Nipsey Hussle’s politically charged protest song “FDT” made its way to the #1 spot after the celebratory weekend included this song into the celebrations happening from coast to coast. According to Hollywood Unlocked, the track made a 338 percent jump in streams on Election Day, which resulted in higher streams after Donald Trump lost the election.
The track against the Republican presidential candidate was first featured on YG’s album Still Brazy in March 2016 with Nipsey Hussle as a call to action for voters headed to the polls in November. Americans are now resurfacing the song that served as an anthem for the past four year to celebrate the country’s new fate.
This past Saturday was one day that will remain as an important date in history with videos of the overcrowded streets across the country celebrating in unison. One of the viral videos include CNN cutting from a live broadcast to commercial once the audio of “FDT” was heard playing in the background.

Other tracks apart from “FDT” that took a rise within the Top charts include Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” from 2009 and NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” from 2002, which both reentered iTunes top 40 and 200 charts. Fans are now on a mission to make “FDT” the top song on the Billboard Hot 100 next week, which we anticipate will happen really soon.
