Patti LaBelle is grateful for James Wright’s “lovely” viral video that caused her sweet potato pies to sell out like a Beyonce concert.

There’s A Drought On Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pies At Walmart – ‘We Need 2 Million Pounds Of Sweet Potatoes!’

But, the legendary diva doesn’t want you to get it twisted.

Auntie Patti told TMZ, “I did it myself…I was selling out before the guy did his wonderful video!”

I love Patti LaBelle like a fully-loaded EBT card, but I have to be honest…I had no idea a Patti pie existed until James’ video.
