Trump Debate Comment Helps Boost Janet Jackson's 'Nasty'

(SOUNDBITE OF JANET JACKSON SONG, "NASTY")

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. One of the more memorable moments from this week's presidential debate - Donald Trump's nasty woman comment. That lit up the internet and had another effect, giving Janet Jackson's song "Nasty" a boost. Its plays increased on Spotify by 250 percent.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "NASTY")

JANET JACKSON: (Singing) Nasty, nasty boys - don't mean a thing. Oh, you nasty boys.
