Van Jones breaks down in tears on CNN after Joe Biden wins presidency

Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA '' and NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” have both re-entered the charts over the weekend.

Democrats across America celebrated after Joe Biden was announced the winner of the US election on Saturday (7 November).

Two unexpected songs have emerged as unofficial anthems of the festivities: Cyrus’s 2009 hit “Party in the USA” and *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye”, which was originally released in 2000.

When news of Biden’s win first broke, a non-official Twitter account under the President-elect’s name – which has since been suspended – wrote: “Go celebrate! Listen to Miley Cyrus’ ‘Party in the USA.’”

In under two hours, Chart Data reported that the song had rocketed up the iTunes Top 100 charts, managing to even break into the top 40 tracks on 7 November. The song is now sitting at number 52.

In response to Chartbeat’s tweet, Cyrus replied: “Now THIS is a PARTY IN THE USA @ JoeBiden @KamalaHarris”

Meanwhile, *NSYNC’s hit 2000 track “Bye Bye Bye” has also seen a spike in the charts seemingly in response to Donald Trump’s impending departure from the White House.

The boy band’s pop song is currently sitting at number 101 on the iTunes Top 200.
