Sinead O’Connor’s Estate Threatens President Donald Trump to Immediately Stop Using Her Music

The representatives of Sinéad O’Connor’s estate have formally requested that ex-President Donald Trump cease the use of her music during his political rallies.

Last month, Trump featured the hit song “Nothing Compares 2 U” by the popular Irish singer during a campaign event in Maryland.

The singer’s representatives informed BBC News it was “no exaggeration to say that Sinéad would have been disgusted, hurt, and insulted” by his use of her music.

A statement released jointly by O’Connor’s estate and her longtime label, Chrysalis Records, stated:

Throughout her life, it is well known that Sinéad O’Connor 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.

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’.

The statement concluded:

“As the guardians of her legacy, we demand that Donald Trump, and his associates desist from using her music immediately.”

The Guardian stated that in addition to “Nothing Compares 2 U,” songs like Abba’s “Dancing Queen,” Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire,” and Elvis Presley’s “Suspicious Minds” were played before the probable Republican candidate for the 2024 presidential election appeared on stage on February 24th.

The Muslim convert, who gained notoriety for tearing a photo of Pope John Paul II in half in 1992, achieved global recognition in 1990 with her cover of Prince’s song “Nothing Compares 2 U.” The track was honored as the top world single of the year by the Billboard Music Awards.

O’Connor’s cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U” topped the UK charts for four weeks straight in 1990.
