‘Let’s Go Brandon’: Rapper Bryson Gray’s song soars past Adele to #1 on iTunes charts
Rapper Bryson Gray's hit single 'Let's Go Brandon' mocking President Joe Biden has beaten pop superstar Adele’s latest single 'Easy On Me' to become #1 on the iTunes charts.
By now, the majority of the country is aware of the 'Let's go Brandon' chant courtesy of social media giants such as TikTok. The #LetsGoBrandonChallenge has thousands of videos on the platform and the trend has gained millions of likes in a matter of few days. However, it is also being viewed as a method to bully Biden and TikTok has threatened to ban Bryson's song from its platform altogether.
“Look at Australia, that’s what coming if we don’t stand up, stop complying with them taking our rights, it’s time to man up,” Gray raps in the hit number.
YouTube took down Gray's music video for 'Let's Go Brandon' last week, claiming it was pushing "medical misinformation." The rapper tweeted, "YouTube has banned ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ song from YouTube due to ‘medical information.' What medical misinformation is in the song? Whoa."
According to him, the lyric video was banned before the music video was deleted. "Update: The music video was just banned. @YouTube this is crazy," Gray wrote on Twitter, eliciting a response from YouTube's official Twitter handle. "Jumping in – we're passing this along to the right team for a re-review," the Google-owned company tweeted. "We'll share updates once we hear back from them. Appreciate your patience in the meantime."

Speaking to Breitbart News, Gray said the overwhelming response he received showed that "we could change the culture if we really wanted to. It shows that people are fed up and disappointed in the Biden administration.”
The chart-topping number, featuring Tyson James and Chandler Crump, takes several jabs at the 46th POTUS over his chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal, the crisis at the southern border, as well as his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, among other issues.
Gray repeats “Let’s Go Brandon” in the song's chorus. The chant originated at a NASCAR Xfinity Series race when an NBC reporter incorrectly stated that the audience in the stands was chanting "Let's Go Brandon" following a victory by racer Brandon Brown, when they were actually chanting "F*** Joe Biden."
The rapper is seen in the song's music video wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and a t-shirt emblazoned with the words “Impeach Biden.”
“They buildin’ back better, but only the Taliban. Pilots on strike, but to Joe, it’s irrelevant. Open the border, lose all the order. Divide us up so they know that we never win. But we united, we here in the stadiums. Everyone chantin’ it, CNN slanderin’,” Gray raps. “We look at Joe, can we get a refund? How ’bout some mean tweets? Joe is a crook, and he knows how to deceive. F. J. B. is the motto in these streets. Let’s go, Brandon." The lyrics go on to say, “If you ask questions ’bout the vax, then they gonna ban us. This is ’bout control, everybody knows.”
Despite the censorship across social media platforms, the song soared to the top of the iTunes Charts. The Christian rapper slammed YouTube in an Instagram post. "I want to thank YouTube for banning my ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ song. All y’all did was piss a bunch of people off and made more people go listen to it. Let’s Go YouTube. Commies," he wrote.
Meanwhile, another song titled "Let's Go Brandon" by MC Loza Alexander was at #2 on iTunes on Tuesday, October 26. Considering, two separate anti-Biden songs are currently ahead of Adele’s hit, “Easy On Me,” which sits at #3.
