The "Let's go Brandon" chant came from an October 2nd post-race interview that an NBC News sports reporter had with NASCAR star Brandon Brown. The crowd behind the reporter shouted "F *** Joe Biden" repeatedly but they told the camera they shouted, "Let's go Brandon."
The song topped Apple Music's hip-hop / rap charts at number 1 and landed at number 2 on Apple Music's top song list in all genres on Wednesday. It was only beaten by Adele's "Easy on Me".

TikTok briefly froze Alexander's account after the song debuted, quoting "bullying," Alexander said.
"I didn't know it was going to be that big, but I had a feeling it was going to be special because I noticed that no one else had made a record, no one else had sampled the vocals," Alexander said on Tuesday in an interview. "It just snaps."

This was not Alexander's first foray into political music. He also created a song for conservative expert Candace Owens in 2020.
"It was just a way to make people feel free," he said. “All the anger people felt - it just feels like it's their voice. Instead of going out going crazy, just listen to the music and let your frustration out. "
