Rihanna has become the latest artist to send a cease-and-desist letter to Donald Trump to order him not to play her music at his rallies.
The US President played the popstar’s 2007 single Don’t Stop The Music at an event in Tennessee on Sunday.
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.
She responded: “Not for much longer…me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip!”

“You have the opportunity to make history this election,” she wrote on Instagram, addressing the US voters who will head to the polls on Tuesday.
“The US has only had four black governors in its entire history, and we can help make Andrew Gillum the next one and Florida’s first,” she added.
The Grammy award-winner is the latest prominent artiste to denounce Trump for using their music to promote causes they do not believe in. Pharrell Williams sent a legal challenge over his use of the song “Happy” on the day of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre.
