The 2009 rip-roaring party anthem released by Miley Cyrus in the first summer of Barack Obama’s presidency made a glorious return to the music charts on Saturday.

They’re making Party in the U.S.A great again.

The 2009 rip-roaring party anthem released by Miley Cyrus in the first summer of Barack Obama’s presidency made a glorious return to the music charts on Saturday as exultant Democrats celebrated President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

From the White House to the brownstones of Brooklyn, Cyrus’ song poured into streets after the repudiation of President Trump, whose loss was called by news outlets late in the morning of a warm, sun-splashed day across much of America.

By 6pm, the tune had soared into the top 40 songs on the U.S. iTunes chart.

Mask-clad revellers in Times Square waved their arms, held up American flags and belted out lyrics, according to video of the jubilant Midtown scene that was posted to social media.

“So I put my hands up, they’re playing my song song, the butterflies fly away, ” they belted. “Nodding my head like yeah. Moving my hips like yeah.”

NOW it’s a PARTY IN THE USA! @joebiden @kamalaharris

From her Twitter account, Cyrus cheered on the celebrations.

“Now THIS is a PARTY IN THE USA!” chirped Cyrus, 27, posting a video of the song playing over clips of Biden nodding and Kamala Harris, his running mate, dancing.

The pop star also retweeted multiple clips of people partying while listening to Party In The U.S.A.

The song joined several others that scored the impromptu festivities in New York City, with “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” by Steam proving another popular choice for Trump’s outro music. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
