That's more like it! Wow that pic is stunning!!!!!!
She cannot help but look terrific! She makes me question my 'gayness'. Have to go look at guys for a minute....
Yea i like the new one better.
I heard UMBRELLA on the radio again. It was number 3 on a top 10 countdown show.
With UMBRELLA its like awesome and incredible had sex and UMBRELLA is their baby.
Ella, ella, LOL
She's hot. I'd totally root her...
Now if only I could get hard for women :(
Official album cover is also MUCH better.
Oh my gosh guys the UMBRELLA music video is totally awesome (!).
It's almost epic and has pyrotechnics falling down and diamond glitter raining down while Rihanna ballets.
She is so sexy in those fishnet stockings and red stiletto heels with the Umbrella opened.
Wow the only thing for me is that she could have choose hotter guys to stand under the Umbrellas but overall love it.
It's so hot, so sexy, and she is doing the ballerina thing that she tried in the We Ride video.
This Australian website showed a 2 minute snippet of it for 30 minutes, the site is down now.
I'm so excited i can't wait for the world premiere.
This song is so going to be HUGE now that she has an awesome video to go with it.
Oh wow I can't wait for the vid!

This is album is shaping up to be super awesome.

Rehab - Justin Timberlake wrote it, Timberland produced
Questions Existing - really deep song
Let Me Get That - lol
Ummm i just found out that Rihanna will be releasing another single on June 5th called, "Shut up and Drive."
I don't understand the reasoning behind that because UMBRELLA hasn't even started yet, it's going to be HUGE after downloads are released.
And the video just came out last week.
So why would Def Jam release another single. By June 5th Umbrella will probably be number 1.
I really like "Shut UP and Drive" its a hot song but it just seems way too soon.
Umbrella is wow and needs to run its course.
Radio stations are still playing Break It Off lol.

You know i checked billboard today and i was surprized to see that, "Never Again" is the number 8 song in the country. Surprized because it was released after UMBRELLA and the latter song is not even top 20. I found that very concerning because UMBRELLA should be HUGE.
So i had to find out whats really going on. UMBRELLA fans not to worry. Apparently, soon after "Never Again" was released it was made available for digital downloads hence its rise up the charts. For some reason Def Jam won't release UMBRELLA for digital downloads until May 15th 2007. So that explains it. So UMBRELLA should be #1 soon there after.
And then she will release "Shut Up & Drive" on June 5th, the same day her album comes out :)
Rihanna rocks (!)
she keeps coming with the hot singles i'm looking forward to her new album next month as well.
Rihanna was awesome on TRL and 106 & Park today.

Oh Cinderella :)
The only person I love more than Rihanna is Lil' Kim! HOLLAAAA
I love Rihanna's new hair do!
They need to do a sequel to Aeon Flux and cast her in the lead!
missed those shows..i'm bad when it comes to remembering who's on TV and at what time.
I really should give this its own thread but i said i wouldn't start a new Rihanna thread until the album comes out so i wont.
But anyways, "Shut up & Drive" leaked today and i hope i didn't overhype it for you guys but i still maintain its awesome. Its very techno poppy, a little Ray Of Lightish.
I can't get enough of it. Its my new ringtone. This song rules. I mean i like UMBRELLA a littlle more but Shut Up & Drive is gonna be HUGE.
Rihanna has really gone bad though :(
This song is ALL about sex and i am not sure if i'm cool with Rihanna singing it at 19. I kind of feel dirty after listening to it.
"Is it ready to explode?"
"we can go all night"
"you look like you can handle whats under my hood"
But then again she got naked for UMBRELLA so i should expected an all grown up Rihanna.
Gay clubs are going to have a field day with the remix to this song.
Its a really fun song and i can see them doing lots with the video for it.
It will also be used in car commercials.
Anyways I will always love Ri Ri no matter what.
Rock on Rihanna
In other news Rihanna hosted TRL again today, looking lovely and the fans voted UMBRELLA the #1 song in the country. Rihanna was so happy, you should have seen her light up when it was revealed.
Pictures from today at TRL,
Rihanna performing "Unfaithful" last night at The Links for Life Gala benefit concert,
Shut Up & Drive is all over YouTube & I'm listening to it right now.....
.....this is shaping up to be a great album to listen to this summer I really can't wait now!
^ Be sure to come back and tell us what you think of the song.
Seems like Kelly Clarkson has a girl crush on Rihanna lol, she couldn't stop complimenting how beautiful Rihanna was in person when they met up at TRL today. She seems to like the UMBRELLA video and the body paint. There was a little tension, not sure of they really like each other lol but its all good.
^^^^I really like it! Seriously, I love great music in the summer and Umbrella & Shut Up...sound like really great songs to have fun to this summer.
P.S. Why do Kelly & she have tension?? I heard Rihanna say on TRL that it was hard getting Umbrella to her because so many people were trying to get it for themselves......was Kelly one of them??? I wonder who else was vying for Umbrella??
Well Rihanna was getting touchy feely with Damien and then Kelly said, "you two should get a room."
Then later after Rihanna said Kelly's video was "hot" Kelly gave her a look.
Maybe i am reading into nothing.
^ Tells who passed but i couldn't find who else wanted it. I did hear her say that she had to fight to get it though and she even prayed on it.Quote:
According to Terius Nash, the song was shopped around to many labels before it reached Rihanna. Mary J. Blige and Akon both passed on the song, but once it got to Karen Kwak at Universal, she sent it to Antonio "L.A" Reid. Thus, Rihanna's version of Umbrella was born.
The TV version of the video is different from the online one.
She will be performing it at the MTV movie awards and she might sing Shut Up & Drive since it will be released to radio June 5th along with the album.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7bK4Vee36M I just saw this on Mtv and I can't get it out of my head. What do you guys think?
It's not my kindo of music, but Rihana is SO hot!
And the song's good, really good.
P.D.: i prefer her hair Brown....!
The UMBRELLA video was added to youtube on, April 26, 2007 and currently has over 2 million views, 2,415,354 to be exact.
Tell me this young lady isn't a superstar :)
I am a fan of this song, and that video was awesome. She is a distinctly beautiful woman, and that is one of the most sexually charged things I have ever seen.
i hated it so much the first time i heard it but absolutely love it now.
I love it, I hated her song "Unfaithful", it drove me berserk, but this and S.O.S. never disappoint... I like her a lot, and it's not very often these days a Pop artist fancies my interest.
man... this song is the SHIT... the video is one that should go down in history... minus the jay-z part because he's just too gangster for rihanna
I guess I am just werid. I LOVE the song. But I cant stand to watch the video. It just really bores me alot. So much more could have been done. I like when a video follows a story line or something to that effect. She does look extremely hot in the video though hehe.
She said that rather than tell a story she wanted the video to be performance based.
It really could have been so much more, but, yes, she is hot in it.
I just wanted some more with the Umbrellas. Get literal. Have hot guys or one main guy under it with rain coming down and more.
I do like the choreography after the bridge though. I had to learn it for my reenactment of the video with i may put on youtube
I can't stop listening to this song. It's hooked me like no other song since SOS.
Thanks guys for your replies, glad to see i'm not the only one with the problem. ;)
I agree that more could have been done with the video. It almost looks like a covergirl commercial with all the close up profile shots of her but she is sexy non the less.
Sexy shitless male dancers perhaps could have been the route she might go down next time. :D
I love It!, i dont like her hair tho!
Loved the song, video was cool as well. It's pretty addictive thats all i know. :gogirl:
2,755,058 views aon Youtube now :)
The single will be available on itunes on tonight/tomorrow so expect to see Umbrella shoot up the charts on it way to #1.
UMBRELLA has #1 all over it
just so everyone knows... her new album "Good Girl Gone Bad" will be available on June 5th... since i haven't seen anyone else say when it's coming i thought i should tell y'all :)
Great video ...but not a great song ....
P.D.: I like her dancing ballet.....!!!!
I mean, her long and warmy legs !oops!
I've been seeing that video, and how mch i see it more i like it!!!!
I really like the song, and I think the video is fabulous. I love the artistic turn she took with this one. Not entirely original, but well done and takes the song to a whole new level. I stop on VH1 & MTV every time i pass & it's on.
the sing is amazing but was very dissapointed in the video!
the video I dont think suited what she is!
I am dissapointed alot in rhianna but the song is great!
I love this tune!!!! I never listen to this type of music but I can't get this song out of my head. I'm obsessed with it now. I think she is so incredible hot.
GAAAAAAAAAWD! I HAAAATE THIS SONG!
You can stand under my umbaaarella... ella ella eh eh eh under my umbrella eh eh eh under my umbaaarella ella ella ella eh eh eh eh under my umbaaarella ella ella ehh eh eh ehhh ehhh ehhhhhhhh!
WHAT THE [!@#$%^&*]?!
There are 3 versions of the video.
One for the internet
One for MTV/VH1
One for BET
I saw all 3 i like the BET one a little more because it has 2 extra scenes.
now #2 on itunes!! :)
I'm not really a fan of the song but the video is strong, especially the silver metal shots. The Jay Z cameo is a bit pointless though, he's not even on the Radio edit here.
Congrats to Rihanna on having her first number song EVER in the UK. This week Umbrella reached number 1 just on downloads alone. The single won't physically be released until 2 weeks yet she is number one already.
She has had 3 #2 singles in the UK with: Pon De Replay, Unfaithful and S.O.S but Umbrella is her first number one and did i mention she got to number just by downloads ALONE :)
Congrats Rihanna, you work so hard. Oh she is also number one in Ireland, again just on downloads.
This weeks Billboard Charts

^ Umbrella fans don't worry. Remember that downloads aren't available in the US until May 22nd, so by next week it should rocket to the top 10 and more than likely reach #1 the week after that :)
