Prior to her tweet about Don't Stop the Music, Rihanna had endorsed Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum for Governor of Florida in the midterm elections.
"You have the opportunity to make history this election," she wrote on Instagram, addressing the US voters who will head to the polls on Tuesday.
FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election. Let’s #bringithome. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society.

"The US has only had four black governors in its entire history, and we can help make Andrew Gillum the next one and Florida's first," she added.
The Grammy award-winner is the latest prominent artiste to denounce Trump for using their music to promote causes they do not believe in.
