The real estate magnate has used "Rolling in the Deep" and "Skyfall" at various events to rev up the crowd, but that will soon come to an end as a rep for the famous singer tells E! News, "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning."
An Adele fan, Trump attended her Radio City Music Hall concert at the end of 2015.
Trump isn't the first politician to appropriate the British singer's music for campaign use. Mike Huckabee also shared a cover of Adele's "Hello" on Twitter rand YouTube, but the audio since has been muted as a result of a claim from the copyright holder. This also isn't this first time a musician has banned his or her music from political events.
According to court documents obtained by E! News, Steven Tyler never granted Trump permission to feature Aerosmith's singles at rallies and other gatherings. As a result, he requested the presidential hopeful to stop playing the songs.
"Trump for President does not have our client's permission to use ‘Dream On' or any of our client's other music in connection with the campaign because it gives the false impression that [Tyler] is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump's presidential bid," the cease and desist letter stated.
Days after legal papers were sent to the GOP frontrunner, the businessman spoke out on Twitter. "Even though I have the legal right to use Steven Tyler's song, he asked me not to," he shared online. "Have better one to take its place!"
Neil Young also voiced his concern after Trump used the song "Rockin' in the Free World" during his presidential candidacy announcement. "Donald Trump was not authorized to use 'Rockin' in the Free World' in his presidential candidacy announcement. Neil Young, a Canadian citizen, is a supporter of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America," the 69-year-old musician's rep told E! News in a statement.
A spokesperson for Trump later clarified that the Republican hopeful paid for and obtained the legal right to use the song but wouldn't be using it again.
