And the Barbados beauty is not the first person to stop Trump from using their music as Pharrell Williams" lawyer recently sent a cease-and-desist letter to Trump after he played "Happy' at a political rally in IN last week, just hours after a mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

The GNR lead singer has asserted that the group had "formally requested" that the American President cease and desist from playing their songs at his events.

The singer responded Sunday after Philip Rucker, the White House bureau chief for the Washington Post, tweeted that Rihanna's single "Don't Stop the Music" was being played at a Trump rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

It's not clear whether Rihanna's team has yet taken legal action against the Trump campaign, but she did call the rallies "tragic", which is almost as damaging.

Rihanna has become the latest musician to condemn Donald Trump for using their music at "tragic" Republican rallies. "Such use is therefore improper", it continued.
