“Don’t Stop the Music” is a song recorded by Barbadian singer Rihanna for her third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007). It was released worldwide on September 7, 2007, as the album’s fourth single. The song was written by Tawanna Dabney and its producers StarGate. Michael Jackson also received a songwriting credit for the sampling of the line “Mama-say, mama-sa, ma-ma-ko-ssa” from Jackson’s 1983 single “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'”. Both Rihanna and Jackson were sued by Cameroonian musician Manu Dibango, who asserted that the hook originated in his 1972 song “Soul Makossa”. “Don’t Stop the Music” is a dance track that features rhythmic devices used primarily in hip hop music.

Many music journalists praised the sampling of the “Mama-say, mama-sa, ma-ma-ko-ssa” hook. The song received a number of accolades, including a Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance Recording. “Don’t Stop the Music” reached number one in nine countries, including Australia, France, Germany, and Switzerland. In the UK, it reached number four on the singles chart and it was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). The single peaked at number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the US Billboard Dance Club Songs charts. Certified four times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), as of 2015, it has sold more than 3.7 million copies in the US.

Anthony Mandler filmed the song’s music video in Prague. In the video, Rihanna and her friends sneak into the back of a candy store that contains a secret club, and she parties with club-goers. The singer performed “Don’t Stop the Music” at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards and the NRJ Music Awards in 2008, and included it on her Good Girl Gone Bad, Last Girl on Earth, Loud and Diamonds World Tour set lists. The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) recognized it as one of the most-performed songs of 2009. English recording artist Jamie Cullum released a cover of the song as the second single from his 2009 album The Pursuit, and his version charted in several European countries.

Please don’t stop the music (Music, music, music, music)
Please don’t stop the music (Music, music, music, music)

[Verse 1: Rihanna]
It’s gettin’ late, I’m making my way over to my favorite place
I gotta get my body moving, shake the stress away
I wasn’t looking for nobody when you looked my way
Possible candidate, yeah
Who knew that you’d be up in here lookin’ like you do
You’re making stayin’ over here impossible
Baby, I’ma say your aura is incredible
If you don’t have to go, don’t

[Pre-Chorus: Rihanna]
Do you know what you started?
I just came here to party
But now we’re rockin’ on the dance floor, actin’ naughty
Your hands around my waist
Just let the music play
We’re hand in hand, chest to chest, and now we’re face to face

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I wanna take you away, let’s escape into the music, DJ, let it play
I just can’t refuse it, like the way you do this
Keep on rockin’ to it
Please don’t stop the, please don’t stop the music
I wanna take you away, let’s escape into the music, DJ, let it play
I just can’t refuse it, like the way you do this
Keep on rockin’ to it
Please don’t stop the, please don’t stop the, please don’t stop the music

[Verse 2: Rihanna]
Baby, are you ready? ’Cause it’s getting close
Don’t you feel the passion ready to explode?
What goes on between us, no one has to know
This is a private show, oh

[Pre-Chorus: Rihanna]
Do you know what you started?
I just came here to party
But now we’re rockin’ on the dance floor, actin’ naughty
Your hands around my waist

We’re hand in hand, chest to chest, and now we’re face to face

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I wanna take you away, let’s escape into the music, DJ, let it play
I just can’t refuse it, like the way you do this

Please don’t stop the, please don’t stop the music
I wanna take you away, let’s escape into the music, DJ, let it play
I just can’t refuse it, like the way you do this
Keep on rockin’ to it
Please don’t stop the, please don’t stop the, please don’t stop the music
