Prince’s “Purple Rain” has frequently been on Trump’s playlist at recent rallies, including last week in Southaven, Mississippi.
Prince’s half-brother Omarr Baker tweeted the estate’s opposition to use of any Prince music by Trump. A spokeswoman for the estate confirmed Friday that a request had been made to discontinue using it.
A White House spokeswoman referred questions to the Trump campaign, which didn’t immediately respond.
Prince died in 2016 from an accidental fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park complex in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
