Gang of Four releases song ‘Ivanka’ off upcoming ‘Complicit’ EP

An iconic post-punk quartet from the UK is ganging up on Ivanka Trump for being “complicit” on their new EP.

Gang of Four released a song named after President Trump’s daughter and senior adviser on Saturday that accuses the two of “lust and avarice” while trotting out quotes Ivanka gave in interviews after her father entered the White House.

“I don’t know what it means to be complicit,” singer Andy Gill says on the funky track called “Ivanka (Things You Can’t Have).” The line invokes Ivanka’s response to a question from Gayle King in a CBS interview last April.

Later Gill sings, “I saw how hard Daddy worked for his money. Daddy loves women and he believes in family.”

There’s also a nod to Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claimed President Trump told her she reminds him of Ivanka during their affair: “In the morning daddy wants me in his room, it’s where we get together. It’s not true that daddy calls my name in stormy weather.”

The cover of the “Complicit” EP, which drops on Friday, features Ivanka standing at a podium with American flags behind her. Her eyes are lightened to a sinister green hue, and the title “Complicit” is spelled out in parentheses in Russian.

Ivanka caught hell for claiming she had a punk phase in the ’90s — which to her meant listening to Nirvana, wearing flannel and dying her hair blue. Wonder what she would think of the track.

“Ivanka (Things You Can’t Have) is now streaming on Spotify and Apple Music. Have a listen below.
