The artist made it clear on Twitter that she doesn't want her hit song being played.
Rihanna is the latest artist to ban her music from being played at rallies featuring President Donald Trump.
Washington Post White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker said Sunday on Twitter that Rihanna's hit song "Don't Stop the Music" was playing at a Trump rally in Chattanooga, Tenn., ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections:
It's been said a million times, but here's a million and one — Trump's rallies are unlike anything else in politics. Currently, Rihanna's “Don't Stop the Music" is blaring in Chattanooga as aides toss free Trump T-shirts into the crowd, like a ball game. Everyone's loving it.

Rihanna responded to Rucker's tweet:
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! https://t.co/dRgRi06GrJ

Rihanna has sold 124 million digital singles in the U.S., which is 10 million more than any other artist, according to Forbes.
Last month, she turned down an offer by the NFL to headline the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show because she stands in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and NFL players who take a knee.
Soon after, actress Amy Schumer posted on social media that she was turning down a chance to appear in a Super Bowl commercial. Schumer also said it "would be cool" if Maroon 5, scheduled to perform, would reject the offer, like Rihanna did.
Last week, Pharrell Williams sent a cease-and-desist letter to President Trump to stop him from using his music. On the same day as the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre, Trump hosted a Midwest campaign rally where "Happy" was on the playlist.
"There was nothing 'happy' about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this purpose," the letter states.
At a rally last week for Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate in the Georgia gubernatorial race, Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) was captured on video dancing to "Happy," and it went viral.
"Get it legend."

There's a big problem when Rekognition matches civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis' photo with a mugshot.

President Donald Trump's Tuesday night State of the Union (SOTU) address comes just weeks after he reportedly called Haiti and African nations "shithole countries" during a meeting on immigration in the Oval Office.
Along with Trump insulting Haiti and African nations during the infamous immigration meeting, the president also said he doesn't want the Congressional Black Caucus' opinion.
President Donald Trump reportedly not only made vulgar insults against Haiti, El Salvador and African nations during a combative immigration reform meeting last week, he also said he didn't care about the Congressional Black Caucus' (CBC) input, according to reports. Trump, who has declared he's not a racist, has no regard for the thoughts of an influential group of Black politicians.
