“Let’s Go Brandon,” a rap song containing audio from President Joe Biden, and featuring lyrics like “epidemic ain’t real,” took the top slot on the iTunes Store song chart from Adele’s comeback single “Easy on Me.” Gray’s song’s title draws inspiration from the “F–k Joe Biden” chant at the NASCAR race won by Brandon Brown earlier this month, which aired on NBC.
An NBC reporter at the event said she heard “Let’s go Brandon,” after Brown’s victory, though it was later pointed out the audience actually chanted “F— Joe Biden.”
Gray’s single has held the top spot since Sunday. MIn his lyrics, Gray expresses anti-vax sentiments (“Biden said the jab stop the spread, it was lies), and suggests the epidemic is a hoax (“epidemic ain’t real”). Other lyrics in the track specifically target President Biden.
Thank you so much for having me on! https://t.co/AiC0fYcZmq

“Media lyin’, ignore all the cryin’/They buildin’ back better, but only the Taliban/Pilots on strike, but to Joe, it’s irrelevant/Open the border, lose all the order,” Gray raps.
“Divide us up so they know that we never win/But we united, we here in the stadiums/Everyone chantin’ it, CNN slanderin’/Biden collapsin’ and Democrats stealin’ it.”
In an interview with the New York Post, Gray thanked cancel culture for working in his favor to bump the song to the top of the chart. “Cancel culture doesn’t work anymore,” he said. “It only works on people who are sc-ared … all it does is help me out.” Adele, however, still sits in the No. 1 slot on the Top 100 chart (streaming) on Apple Music.
Krissy Gray – Because it’s being banned, I now want to listen to this artist. “Let’s go, Brandon” has to be among one of my favorite moments of TV.
Walter Lopes – I was waiting for something special to come along and once again l wasn’t let down . We now have music involved in this mess . Thank you for not letting me down. This gets better by the moment. This country should be so proud
Megan – His music was banned for spreading “hate and misinformation” yet all I see is a ban on this mans freedom of speech. No “leader” is free from c-riticism and people are allowed to have opinions about situations even if you disagree with them.
Dennis – I do believe it was banned for “false medical information.” Which explains a lot since apparently the left is getting it’s medical information from rap videos.
Amanda – Well, I’m pretty sure we know what demographic is supporting the song
