Atlantic recording artist Ledinsky has released the companion video for his track “DonaldTumpMakesMeWannaSmokeCrack” from his recently released “HIGH SOCIETY” EP. Ledinsky launched a contest hosted by Genero, giving fans the chance to personally create the official music video. The winning video, directed by Peder Bergstrand – a fellow Swede, premiered with Billboard.com along with a Q&A with Ledinsky, discussing his inspiration for the song and details about how the video came to be.

“DonaldTrumpMakesMeWannaSmokeCrack” is an addictive pop protest anthem inspired by the Swedish-born indie singer/songwriter’s increasing desperation at our political climate. Upon release, “DonaldTrumpMakesMeWannaSmokeCrack” quickly took off; topping the Spotify Viral Charts in the USA, UK, Netherlands, Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Switzerland, Columbia, Spain, France and Hungary. “It’s more than being about Donald Trump,” says Ledinsky, “the song is about a love for America, my adoptive parent. Donald Trump is a symbol for a regression into darkness, the end stop of the Chicago model. The frontier was once the Wild West, then the moon. Now it’s a wall.”
Ledinsky left his native Sweden just over a decade ago, making a new home in Los Angeles where he earned a reputation as a crafty songwriter and producer. The “HIGH SOCIETY” EP was recorded earlier this year, with all songs written, produced, and performed by Ledinsky. Additional backing comes from such players as Refused drummer David Sandstrom and TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, who contributes drums, guitars and keyboards while also assisting in the creation of the EP’s striking cover art.
