Rihanna is taking action against Donald Trump for using her music at his political rallies. Last weekend a reporter took to social media that Rihanna’s hit song “Don’t Stop the Music” was being played at the rally. Rihanna immediately said that her music won’t be playing at his rallies much longer.
New reports confirm she informed her legal team of the misuse and immediately issued a cease and desist letter to Trump and his administration.
The letter read,” It has come to our attention that President Trump has utilized Rihanna’s musical compositions and master recordings including her hit track ‘Don’t Stop the Music,’ in connection with a number of political events held across the United States. As you are or should be aware Ms. Fenty has not provided her consent to Mr. Trump to use her music. Such use is therefore improper. Trump’s unauthorized use of Ms. Fenty’s music creates a false impression that Ms. Fenty is affiliated with connected to or otherwise associated with Trump.”
Rihanna isn’t the first artist to stop her music from being played at Trump rallies. Pharrell Williams recently issued a similar letter to Trump in addition to the late Prince’s estate.
