Rihanna to Trump: Stop playing my songs at your tragic rallies

08 November 2018

According to Rucker, Rihanna's smash hit "Don't Stop The Music" was blasting during a Trump rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee while tossing around free Trump shirts.

During the 2016 election numerous bands and artists, including Adele, the Rolling Stones and Elton John, requested the Trump campaign stop using their material.

Rihanna is the latest artist unhappy over the fact their music is being co-opted by President Donald Trump.

Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has shared a statement on Twitter and said that President Donald Trump using Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child of Mine" without his consent.

"Lawyers for the singer issued Mr Trump a cease and desist letter after he played the song at a political event in IN 'on the day of the mass murder of 11 human bring at the hands of a deranged 'nationalist, '" Sky News reports. "Such use is therefore improper". "Trump's unauthorized use of [Rihanna's] music creates a false impression that [Rihanna] is affiliated with, connected to or otherwise associated with Trump".

Last week, Pharrell Wiliams had his lawyer send a cease-and-desist letter to Trump to stop playing Happy at his political events.

We had moments, we had kind of nearly-chances, the biggest in the last two three minutes and before that not enough. The second half was really dominant, but we didn't score.

After all, most are not really fans of MAGA so they'd rather not have their songs played at Trump's rallies.

It looks like RiRi is next to hit Trump with a cease-and-desist.

Blanket performance licenses are obtained via ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers), BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc.) and SESAC (Society of European Stage Authors and Composers), the primary organizations in charge of licensing music.

This isn't the first time that Rihanna's music has been reportedly blasted during Trump's racist rallying calls.

The popstar, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, became aware of the unauthorised use of her music when Washington Post reporter Philip Rucker tweeted about it.
