In an exclusive interview with TGP correspondent Jordan Conradson, Lara Trump opened up about the censorship surrounding her song and its unexpected success. Despite facing massive censorship, Lara’s cover of Tom Petty’s song has made its way onto the Apple Music and Amazon charts, and it is set to debut on multiple Billboard charts this week. In fact, the song even reached the impressive position of number two on iTunes’ country genre, surpassing other popular songs in the genre. It also reached number four on Amazon Music’s new country genre.
However, the road to success was not without obstacles. As reported by The Gateway Pundit, right after the release of Lara Trump’s “I Won’t Back Down,” she faced significant censorship and received numerous complaints about shadow banning online. Music streaming platforms were not the only ones involved in the censorship; a billboard advertiser in Times Square removed Lara’s name and the song’s title from an ad that was supposed to reach millions of people. Instead, all that remained was a photo of Lara on a horse. The Gateway Pundit covered this incident and also conducted an exclusive interview with Lara, during which she hinted at possible legal action due to this discriminatory act.
Furthermore, news outlets such as Newsweek wrote negative pieces about Lara and her song, dubbing it a “cheap move” by the leftist Petty Family. In response to the blatant breach of Lara’s rights and her contract by the advertiser, she told The Gateway Pundit, “Probably if my last name was Biden, I could assume they’d put it up there.” This comment highlights the bias faced by conservative voices in the entertainment industry.
Despite all the obstacles, Lara Trump’s debut song, released under First Class Records, performed remarkably well on its first day, even with the censorship and shadow banning on platforms like Apple and Spotify. The song, produced by Mailman Media, the same team that brought us “Justice for All,” featuring Donald Trump and the J6 Choir, reached number one on the Billboard Charts and iTunes. In addition, Kari Lake’s single, “81 Million Votes My Ass,” produced by Mailman Media, also reached number one on two Billboard charts, highlighting the success of First Class Records’ releases.
First Class Records label president, LJ Fino, expressed the label’s pride in announcing that Lara Trump’s first single, “I Won’t Back Down,” would debut on the Billboard Digital Song Sales Chart and the Billboard Country Digital Song Sales chart. It also has the potential to appear on three additional Billboard charts, including Emerging Artists, First Timers, and Hot Country Singles.
This success is a testament to the demand for America First artists and the rejection of woke garbage music coming from left-leaning Hollywood. Lara Trump expressed her gratitude for the overwhelming support the song has received, stating, “I am truly humbled and honored by all of the people who listened and downloaded over the past week.” She believes that this success proves that one should never cower to the left-wing mob and their media allies.
When asked about the possibility of conservatives reclaiming the entertainment industry, given the success of her song and other conservative voices like Steve Will Do It and Joe Rogan, Lara expressed hope, saying, “I hope we have turned a corner as a country and start focusing on entertainment and not political leanings. This success is proof that you should never cower.” This sentiment reflects the desire to see a shift towards supporting artists based on their talents and not their political affiliations.
In conclusion, despite facing censorship and discrimination, Lara Trump’s song has defied the odds, climbing the charts and garnering immense support. Its success serves as a reminder that talent and determination can overcome the barriers set by the entertainment industry’s left-leaning bias.
