Who would have thought 2 years ago that Rihanna would be the gigantic pop star she’s become. Unless Kate Nash or Timbaland have the Saturday sales of a lifetime, “Umbrella” will be at #1 for a 10th week come Sunday. I am a chart geek so here are some reasons why i’m getting very excited by a ten week reign:
Rihanna’s next single “Shut Up And Drive” is meant to be out in about 2 weeks but I guess it might get put back. In any case I’m not fussed about it, the highlight of the album for me now (and it took a little while to grow) is the Michael Jackson sampling “Don’t Stop The Music”. I just love the way the sample is weaved in.
Thanks to different countries releasing different things there’s already a video for this song. It involves lots of handclapping, Rihanna psyching herself up in a mirror or hoping for an evil Willow doppleganger snog with herself, some expensive wallpaper and a whole lot of attitude.
