Rihanna Under Fire For Using Islamic Text For Lingerie Show

A video of the show, which saw models dancing around on stage in the singer’s provocative Savage x Fenty lingerie, was shared on Amazon Prime last week.

Muslims were outraged after discovering Rihanna, 32, chose to use the song Doom, by London producer Coucou Chloe, which features a hadith narration.

The hadith in question appears to have remixed a recitation by Kuwaiti preacher Mishary bin Rashid Alafasy.

Coucou Chloe’s most recent Instagram post has hundreds of users criticising her track on it. On Monday, she posted an apology on Twitter.

“I want to deeply apologise for the offence caused by the vocal samples used in my song ‘Doom’. The song was created using samples from Baile Funk tracks I found online. At the time, I was not aware that these samples used text from an Islamic Hadith,” Chloe wrote.

“I take full responsibility for the fact I did not research these words properly and want to thank those of you who have taken the time to explain this to me. We have been in the process of having the song urgently removed from all streaming platforms.”

Thousands of Rihanna fans from varying religious backgrounds took to Twitter to urge her to remove the song from Amazon Prime recording and to apologise for offending Muslims.
