Rihanna previously took to Twitter to promise she would stop her music from being played at Trump "tragic rallies".

Rihanna is the latest artist to send a cease-and-desist letter to Donald Trump, with the Anti singer deploying legal action after her "Don't Stop the Music" was played at the president's rally Sunday in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Her legal team has now sent an official letter to the White House.

"As you are or should be aware, Ms. Fenty has not provided her consent to Mr. Trump to use her music".

He also elaborated that this kind of attitude goes on to show that Trump along with a "majority of Republicans in Congress" are using music to further their agendas.

Other musicians who've contacted Trump's team to tell him to please do stop using their music include Adele, Sir Elton John, Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, Twisted Sister and Queen as well as the estates of Prince, George Harrison estate and Luciano Pavarotti.

On Sunday, Rihanna learned that Trump had been using her music at rallies when Washington Postreporter Philip Rucker tweeted, "It's been said a million times, but here's a million and one - Trump's rallies are unlike anything else in politics".

Rihanna's comments came just a few hours after a similar complaint by Rose, 56, who fired off a series off Tweets accusing the Trump campaign of "using loopholes in the various venues' blanket performance licenses. without the songwriters' consent". Can u say "sh-bags?!'" he continued.

Clarifying the band's position in this regard, Rose said that he liked "the irony of Trump supporters listening to a bunch of anti-Trump music at his rallies".

Pharrell Williams' lawyer sent a cease-and-desist letter to Trump last month after "Happy" was played at a rally in IL just hours after a gunman killed 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

"And when ur phone's blowin' up cuz peeps r seein'/hearin' Sweet Child on the news at a rally, as a band we felt we should clarify r position", tweeted Rose, who is encouraging fans to get out and vote.
