Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton “a nasty woman” at the final presidential debate, but viewers only had Janet Jackson on their minds.
Spotify says streams of the hit Janet Jackson song “Nasty” spiked 250 per cent after Trump’s statement in the final minutes of their presidential showdown. In the approximately 12 hours following the debate, the word also became one of Merriam-Webster’s most searched-for entries.
Clinton supporters put a positive twist on The Donald’s attack:
“Nasty” is among the most recognizable hits from Jackson’s discography, topping the U.S. R&B chart in 1986.
