Thanks To Trump, Janet Jackson's "Nasty" Is Blowing Up On Spotify
This is the ONLY good thing to come of this year’s presidential election from Donald Trump.
Last night, Trump and Hillary Clinton had their third and final presidential debate before this year’s election on November 8.
Clinton was discussing her plan to add more money to the social security program. “I am on record as saying that we need to put more money in the social security trust fund,” she said. “That’s part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy. My social security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald’s – assuming he can’t figure out how to get out of it.”
Trump’s response to Clinton? “Such a nasty woman.” What follows is a testament to the greatness of the Internet age. Along with coming at Trump on social media, plenty of people took to Spotify to stream Janet Jackson‘s 1986 song “Nasty,” and played the track so much that it increased its streams by 250 percent, according to the streaming service.
In other Janet Jackson related news, the singer is a part of the roster of nominees for the 2017 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. She also dropped a music video several months back, that happened to coincide with the announcement that she was expecting her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana. The video, titled “Dammn Baby,” featured the 49 year old singer donning a black latex outfit, and showing off some choreographed dance moves with a handful of backup dancers accompanying her.
Overall, it’s totally awesome that Janet’s 1986 hit song had something of a resurgence in 2016. The track did celebrate its 30 year anniversary earlier this year after all. A little late of a celebration but better late than never, right?
Hopefully we’ll get to hear Janet’s thoughts on this bizarre incident some time in the foreseeable future, but until then crank your speakers up and get “Nasty.”
