Donald Trump Asked to Stop Using Sinead O'Connor's Music in Campaign Rallies

In a joint statement, Sinead O'Connor's estate and Chrysalis Records, "as the guardians of her legacy," demanded Donald Trump and his associates to "desist from using her music immediately."

They said the Irish singer, who died last year at the age of 56, "lived by a fierce moral code defined by honesty, kindness, fairness, and decency towards her fellow human beings."

"It was with outrage therefore that we learned that Donald Trump has been using her iconic performance of Nothing Compares 2 U at his political rallies," they noted.

"It is no exaggeration to say that Sinéad would have been disgusted, hurt, and insulted to have her work misrepresented in this way by someone who she herself referred to as a 'biblical devil'," they added.

O'Connor's version of "Nothing Compares 2 U," written by Prince, spent four weeks at number one in the UK in 1990, propelling her to stardom. O'Connor died from natural causes in her London home on July 26, 2023.

Other Singers Who Asked Donald Trump To Stop Using Their Music

Apart from Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U," Abba's "Dancing Queen," Elvis Presley's "Suspicious Minds," and Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" were also used before Donald Trump reportedly took to the stage on February 24.

As he runs for a second term, Trump is currently campaigning to be the Republican nominee for the upcoming November election. According to The Guardian, O'Connor follows a long list of artists who have already demanded Trump to stop using their music at his political rallies.

These singers and bands include Rihanna, Adele, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, the late Tom Petty, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, The Rolling Stones, Linkin Park, and Luciano Pavarotti.
