Savage X Fenty de Rihanna used a track that samples hadîth, a sacred Islamic text.
A song that contains a narration of a hadith – sacred Islamic text – was used in Rihanna ’s latest lingerie fashion show. The track is called “Doom” by London-based producer Coucou Chloe.
Muslims have expressed their discomfort and the disrespect of using the hadith on the track across social media. The song was used in the fashion show that is available on Amazon Prime and is part of playlists for the track list of the show.
After les criticism on social media, Coucou Chloe issued a statement on her Twitter on Monday, apologizing for the use of the samples and announcing that the song would be removed from all streaming platforms.
