They noted that Rihanna took the song from a music streaming platform, adding that they want the singer to pay for damages and also to stop using their song.

A peek into Rihanna's Instagram page showed that the singer posted a Fenty Beauty advert five days ago. In the advert, the Love on the Brain crooner was donned in a shirt and trousers as she pushed a big makeup case into a huge showroom.

The advert was posted to create awareness about a product that would be released on Saturday, December 26.
