Mac Miller’s 2011 Hit ‘Donald Trump’ Reenters the iTunes Chart
While people are still reeling from Donald Trump’s victory to become our 45th President of the United States, Mac Miller’s 2011 hit, “Donald Trump” saw a resurgence in popularity on Wednesday (Nov. 9).
According to Pigeons & Planes, the song, which is from Miller’s Best Day Ever mixtape, reentered the Top 30 on the iTunes chart. On the track, Miller praises the now President-elect and dreams of securing money and fame just like the real estate tycoon. Obviously, people are now using the song as a celebration of Trump’s win.
But don’t get it twisted. Miller is not a supporter of Trump. In fact the billionaire sued the Pittsburgh rapper for $1 million for the use of his name on the song. During Trump's presidential run earlier this year, Miller urged his fans not to vote for him.
In a pointed monologue on the now-defunct The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore, Miller blasted Trump for being an egomaniacal racist.
“I only have one thing to say, I f---ing hate you, Donald Trump,” he seethed. “So, you wanted to sue me. But then you realized you can’t sue somebody just for being super-talented and incredibly good-looking.”
On Wednesday (Nov. 9), Miller went on his Twitter account and quoted a line from Hillary Clinton's concession speech before telling fans to keep on striving and don't feel defeated.
"Never stop believing that fighting for what's right is worth it," he tweeted. "Do not be defeated. There is a lot of work to do. Do not be divided. There is a lot of love to spread."
