Apparently Rihanna's 2007 hit "Don't Stop The Music" was played at a rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Both artists took to social media to comment on Trump using their music, which was played at rallies over the weekend per Pitchfork.

Following her endorsement of Florida Democrat Andrew Gillum for governor Sunday, Rihanna responded to Washington Post reporter Phillip Rucker's tweet about the weird nature of Trump rallies, where her music is part of the blaring soundtrack.

Rihanna kept to her word and her legal team soon sent a letter to Trump's White House counsel, according to Rolling Stone.

It adds: "Such use is therefore improper".

In likely violation of the public performance rights rules, Trump and his staff continued to play the music and disregard requests.

While she isn't a U.S. citizen and can't vote in Tuesday's midterm elections, Rihanna has made no secret of her opposition to Trump. Most recently, Pharrell sent a cease and a desist to 45 for using his song "Happy" at a rally in IL.

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

Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses also expressed frustration his music was being played at political rallies.

"Just so ya know".

In addition to her stance against Trump, Rihanna recently came out in support of Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate in the Florida governor race.

Axl Rose also said that Guns N' Roses had "formally requested r music not b used at Trump rallies or Trump associated events".

She wrote on Instagram: "You have the opportunity to make history this election".

"There was nothing "happy" about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for you use of this song for this objective", said the letter.

As we've previously noted, Rose and company aren't the only artists that aren't happy with their songs being used during the president's rallies.
