President Trump's musical selection isn't sitting well with Prince's estate.

The estate took to Twitter October 10 to let President Trump know he does not have permission to use Prince's songs. This demand came after the Trump campaign played the song "Purple Rain" during a rally in Minneapolis... which is the late music legend's hometown.

This isn't the first conflict between the Prince Team and President Trump. The tweet also includes a letter showing the Trump campaign agreed to stop using Prince's music in October of 2018.

Several other artists have told President Trump the same thing, including Rihanna, Adele, Ozzy Osbourne, and Neil Young.
