We wonder if Chrisette Michele realized her decision to sing at Donald Trump’s Inauguration would cause such a stir. It’s certainly gotten her name in the headlines, and now that the hip-hop community has responded the way it has, the singer has struck back with a musical response. “No Political Genius” is more of a spoken word poem than song, but we could see it becoming a background anthem for jazzy dinner parties.

Listen to Chrisette Michele’s “No Political Genius,” and let us know your thoughts in the comments below. Will all this controversy eventually be a blessing for the singer’s career?

Quotable Lyrics

I won’t divide now
That’s not smart now
God before me, I won’t back down
This is my damn America now
