YG’s anti-Trump anthem “FDT” tops charts after US elections

The 2016 song featured the late Nipsey Hussle.

YG and Nipsey Hussle’s 2016 collaboration “FDT” (which stands for “Fuck Donald Trump”) has topped the charts following Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s victory over incumbent President Donald Trump in the recent US elections.

According to Billboard, “FDT” was streamed 2.5 million times on November 7, the day Biden was called the victor in the presidential race. Billboard also added that the song’s streaming number had doubled the amount from November 6, making a huge leap from 438,000. Brooklyn Vegan also reported that “FDT” rose to the top spot on the US iTunes chart, per Chart Data.

However, “FDT” wasn’t the only song that saw an increase in streaming. Tracks like Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” and NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” also received a surge in streaming on Saturday.

YG and Nip released the anti-Trump anthem during the previous presidential election in 2016, which saw Trump beat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Earlier this month, the West Coast rapper returned with a music video mocking the POTUS, “Jealous.”
