Apparently, Black artists aren't feeling it.

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.

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.
