Prince Estate: Trump Stop Using Music At Rallies

Prince's Estate Urges Donald Trump To Stop Playing

Prince's Estate Urges Donald Trump To Stop Playing "Purple Rain" At Rallies: Report

When he was alive, Prince himself was notorious for having his team shut down unauthorised use of his music seemingly any and every time it came to light.

He was strongly in favour of people only being able to physically purchase his albums, and most videos of him performing online were removed as quickly as possible.

The Prince Estate has asked President Donald Trump to stop playing Prince's music at his rallies.

"The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or the White House to use Prince's song and have requested that they cease all use immediately", Baker said.

At recent pre-Election Day rallies, like the one Trump held in MS last week, the playlist at the event has featured Prince's "Purple Rain".

However, meteorologists have said exceptionally warm sea water along the Mediterranean coast may be intensifying the rains. In the village of Villegailhenc, the river Trapel swelled to such an extent that it swept away at least one road bridge.

On one hand, it's a fairly unacceptable thing to do, but on the other hand it is an absolute banger.

For some reason, Trump has been playing the song at his rallies, including last week in Southaven, Mississippi. His estate is similarly notorious in shutting down unauthorized use of his songs.

President Donald Trump will not be able to use Prince's tunes at his rallies anymore.

They are often ignored, as was the case for the Rolling Stones. The Prince estate and the Trump administration did not respond to the Associated Press' request for comment.
