Chrisette Michele continues to deal with fallout over her decision to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration. Following harsh words from her fiance, the singer released a new song called "No Political Genius" to address her haters.

"I am the black song Spike Lee won't sing," she begins. The 2-minute spoken word track features Michele defending her decision to perform for Trump amid criticism from Lee and others. "Church folks may not clap but I'll sing their song..I'm still black girl, magic."

Fans and critics overwhelmingly responded negatively. "You represent no cause," said CNN commentator Bakari Sellers.

Others noted that the singer really is "no political genius," given her decision to appear for Trump.
