Rihanna Stops Use Of Her Music At Trump Rallies

Rihanna Stops Use Of Her Music At Trump Rallies

After the Washington Post's White House bureau chief, Philip Rucker, said that Rihanna's 2007 single Don't Stop the Music was being played by Trump at a rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Bajan singer replied, saying: "Not for much longer" and described Trump's rallies as "tragic".

Rihanna is the latest musician to slam United States president Donald Trump for playing her songs at Republican rallies.

In response to a tweet heralding the spirit at Trump rallies and the role of Rih's music in them, Rihanna ensured that her stance on the matter was clear.

Rihanna hit back at President Trump after a reporter informed the singer her song was being played at the president's rally on Sunday.

Similar to his events during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump's selection of music before and after the rallies has remained constant, most notably Lee Greenwood's rendition of 'God Bless the U.S.A'. Just last week, Pharrell sent Trump a cease-and-desist letter for playing his song "Happy" at an event just hours after the deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 people dead.

"There was nothing "happy" about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this objective". Trump has also had some musical squabbles with Neil Young for using his song "Rockin' in the Free World", as well as REM for "It's the End of the World". You have the opportunity to make history this election", she wrote."The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make [Andrew Gillium] the next one and Florida's first!
