After Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a “nasty woman” during the third presidential debate on Wednesday, streams of Janet Jackson‘s “Nasty” on Spotify spiked.

According to the streaming platform, the song’s popularity increased by 250 percent, with Spotify attributing the increase to Trump’s comment.

Social media went wild when Trump called Clinton “a nasty woman” during her answer to how she would address mounting entitlement costs.

“My Social Security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald’s — if he can’t figure out how to get out of it,” she replied, which Trump interrupted by saying, “Such a nasty woman.”

While Clinton seemed unfazed, the Twitterverse took notice, especially in the wake of past lewd comments Trump has made about women recently coming to light.

Someone also made a mashup video of Trump saying “nasty woman” dubbed over the hit song “Nasty” by Janet Jackson. It’s the latest in a number of musical mashups that have been inspired by the election. Melania Trump famously mimicked lyrics from Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” at the Republican National Convention, and a video featuring both candidates singing “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” went viral after the second debate.
