Rihanna ft. Jay-Z - Umbrella

In an attempt to seemingly make sure that none of Fat Joe’s money rains down on her, Rihanna has her Umbrella firmly in hand.  On the lead single to her as-yet untitled third studio album (of the past two years,) Rihanna joins the very man who inked her to a record contract: Jay-Z.  Hova jumps off the track before it really gets going, although it allows the real star the chance to get her sunshine on.  From start to finish the song is captivating and credit should be given to excellent production from C. Tricky Stewart, who many might think is really Timbaland with a new alias.  So let it rain, Rihanna is confident and ready.
