Rihanna apologizes to Muslim community for offensive Coucou Chloe song “DOOM”


Rihanna debuted her second Savage x Fenty fashion show last week and it premiered on Amazon Prime. It's safe to say that this intimate brand is taking over the industry thanks to its inclusivity. The show is definitely a must watch but some issues surfaced regardin the music that was picked during the show. One of the tracks "Doom" by Coucou Chloe included a remix of a Hadith narration. In the Islamic faith the Hadith is a sacred written record representing the traditions or sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, used as guidance by Muslims. Born and raised in Nice, Chloe dropped out of a prestigious art school and moved to London to share her fearsome club constructions with the world, quickly finding fans in Fenty x Puma, who used her tracks in runway shows. She also issued an apology in regard to the accident " "I want to deeply apologize 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." "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." And here's Rihanna apology:
