Washington sources reported that the family of Prince has told Donald Trump to stop playing the late icon's songs at rallies, following a phalanx of other angry artists who have told the US president to pull the plug. The musician's half-brother Omarr Baker tweeted "The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or The White House to use Prince's songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately”.



Accordingly the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to an AFP request to comment and the president's team has reportedly added "Purple Rain," one of Prince's best loved tracks, to the playlist of recent rallies in the run-up to November midterm elections, including in Mississippi last week. Moreover the complaint adds Prince to a long line of musicians or their representatives who have objected to the billionaire Republican head of state blasting out their tunes at his public rallies.

Furthermore the Rolling Stones, Adele, Neil Young, R.E.M., Aerosmith, Queen and George Harrison are among acts that have lodged objections to the use of their music at Republican gatherings. Hence the family of Italy's late Luciano Pavarotti, one of the most famous tenors of the 20th century, also criticized the use of his signature recording of blockbuster Puccini aria "Nessun Dorma," a fixture at Trump's 2016 rallies.
