On Thursday, Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Prince’s hometown of Minneapolis, and prior to his taking the stage, organizers played the musician’s hit song “Purple Rain” to get the crowd going, USA Today reported.

That did not please Prince’s estate, who issued a tweet condemning the use of his music and writing they would never give Trump permission to use any of the his songs on the campaign.

The tweet also included a letter received by the estate in 2018, in which a representative for Trump agreed not to use any Prince music going forward.

Plenty of other musicians have balked at Trump using their work in connection with his campaigns over the years, including Pharrell Williams, R.E.M., Aerosmith and Queen.
