"Trump would have been the only one I might have turned down."

Melburnian DJ Throttle — also known as Robbie Bergin — has found his song being used by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in her campaign rallies, with the 19-year-old stating "it's been a crazy couple of weeks" for him.

As ABC reports, Bergin's manager was asked for permission to use the song, Together, about three weeks ago. Bergin says, "My manager got an email from someone at her camp saying that they were big fans of the song and would love to use it for her campaign. It's been a bit of a wild ride since then, but enjoying it all, it's been a crazy couple of weeks."

Bergin continues, "I'm stoked that she's using it … [Donald] Trump would have been the only one I might have turned down." He added that he was not a fan of Clinton initially but is "certainly a fan of her now".

Having kicked off his DJ career when he was 13, Bergin is now in LA trying to further this career. Throttle was created in collaboration with Canadian singer David Spekter — you can check out the lyric video below.
