Ke$ha‘s new hit “Die Young” has been yanked off the air across the country following the Newtown tragedy on Friday.
Before Friday, “Die Young” was #3 on the charts, reaching 167 million listeners nationwide. Since the horrific event on Friday, it’s down 3 million.
By Monday … “Die Young” took a huge hit on the radio … dropping down to 148 million listeners … a 19 million drop from what had been a pretty steady rotation before the shooting.
One music expert tells us … a drop of this magnitude is extremely rare. The last time a song plummeted this quickly is when the Dixie Chicks were banned from country radio … after insulting President Bush.
We reached out to Ke$ha for comment — so far , no word back.
What do you think? Do you agree Ke$ha should be pulled?
