Music artist Bryson Gray's "Let's Go Brandon" rap has gone mega viral, becoming the most downloaded song on iTunes over the weekend, even after YouTube and Instagram banned the rapper's work criticizing President Joe Biden.
Gray tweeted on Sunday: "WE DID IT. FROM BANNED ON YOUTUBE TO PASSING ADELE ON THE ITUNES CHARTS TO BECOME THE #1 SONG IN THE COUNTRY! Stop being afraid of censorship. Stop being afraid to be cancelled. STAND UP. Thank y'all so much! KEEP IT GOING!"
Gray's song has even eclipsed a similar effort by fellow rapper Loza Alexander, whose rap hit No. 1 on the iTunes hip hop chart in mid-October. Alexander's track sits impressively in the third spot on iTunes with Adele as runner-up to Gray.
"Instagram just banned the music video also. Haha cute but it's too late," continued Gray in his follow-up tweet Sunday.
The song's two versions (lyrical and music video) were taken down from YouTube before Instagram followed suit with the censorship effort. YouTube claimed Gray's song violated the platform's policy and contained "medical misinformation."
The song itself talks about President Joe Bide's botched withdrawal from Afghanistan and the administration's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
