‘Let’s Go Brandon!’ goes from viral social media meme to the top of the iTunes charts

An anti-Biden rap song inspired by the viral “Let’s go Brandon!” trend is now sitting at the top of the iTunes hip-hop chart.

The song, performed by rapper Loza Alexander and entitled “Let’s Go Brandon,” first went viral on TikTok before making a fast rise up the iTunes hip-hop chart to clinch the number one spot.

The “Lets Go Brandon” song includes the lyrics, “Don’t nobody like his ass, huh? Tried to cover up, by telling the people are saying ‘Let’s go Brandon”. But we know what they saying, though. You can hear the chant in every post.”

The official music video has more than 1 million views as of Monday morning.

The song was inspired by the “Let’s Go Brandon!” trend that has been sweeping the country since NBC sports reporter Kelli Stavast interviewed NASCAR driver Brandon Brown following his victory at Alabama’s Talladega Super Speedway earlier this month. During the interview, the crowd could clearly be heard chanting “Fuck Joe Biden” in the background, which the NBC reporter desperately tried to pass off as “Let’s Go Brandon!”

“Brandon, you also told me — as you can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go, Brandon!’ — Brandon, you told me you were gonna kinda hang back those first two stages and just watch and learn,” the reporter told Brandon during the interview. “What did you learn that helped you in those closing laps?”

The interview quickly went viral on social media, with some users pointing out that the reporter intentionally attempted to misrepresent what the crowd was chanting. From there the phrase became somewhat of a viral chants for crowds of patriots across the nation, finding its way onto merchandise and becoming a popular chant at college and NFL football games with hundred of thousands of fans chanting it at sporting events.

At one recent Georgia-Auburn college football game, one person rented a plane to fly a banner with the “Let’s Go Brandon!’ phrase written on it, with the phrase largely replacing the more direct “Fuck Joe Biden!” chants that had been spreading across the country.

This past weekend footage surfaced of the entire Metlife stadium erupting in ‘Fuck Joe Biden’ chants with thousand of Jets fans screaming ‘Fuck Joe Biden’ to celebrate their home team securing its first win of the season against the Titans.

Unfortunately, there was no NBC reporters at the game to report on tell us that the crowd was actually chanting “Let’s Go Brandon”.
