Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pie’s are flying off the shelves after a customer’s video reviewing them went viral.

Singer James Wright Chanel posted a musical review of LaBelle’s sweet potato pie exclusively sold at Walmart on Facebook.

The video went viral receiving more than 1 million views— and now Walmart has been struggling to keep up with the demand for pies.

Walmart representatives say that for the past 72 hours, they have been selling a pie per second, equivalent to under 1 million in sales just for the weekend.

Demand is so high they’re being sold second hand for $45 dollars a piece.

LaBelle and Walmart have both reached out to Wright to thank him.
