Former President Donald Trump has made headlines once again, and this time it’s not in court but in the music arena. Trump has outdone accomplished singers like Miley Cyrus, Morgan Wallen, and Lady Gaga by earning the top spot on the Digital Song Sales chart on Billboard with his song “Justice for All” featuring the J6 Prison Choir. More than 33,000 people purchased downloads of the track between March 10 to 16, which finally put it at the top of the chart.

The former President and men imprisoned for their involvement in the January 6, 2021, attack on Washington D.C.’s Capitol, created the recording. Donald Trump, in particular, recites the Pledge of Allegiance, which is mixed with the J6 Prison Choir’s version of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Even though Trump recorded his segment of the piece from his home in Mar-a-Lago, the choir sang over the phone from their jail in Washington D.C. The final song product was produced by an unnamed famous artist.
What’s even more impressive about the song is that it’s raised funds that will help people imprisoned for their role in the January 6 incident provide for their families. Although it’s a controversial topic, the former President has brought attention to it using his star power.
Country artist John Rich congratulated him on his success and shared the news on Truth Social, stating that “the people have spoken! Congrats @realDonaldTrump on your first #1 Billboard Song!” The song’s popularity was boosted when its video premiered on the video-sharing platform Rumble, where it gained 39% of its sales.
It’s self-apparent that Donald Trump is not going anywhere soon, even though several people have attempted to bring him down. With his track’s popularity, it’s clear that he still has a significant and fervent following who appreciates not only his political beliefs but also his talents in music.
