An artist knows they have a hit song on their hands when millions of people are singing along even when they don't know the words or when they hate the song but can't stop themselves from singing the infectious hook. When I first heard Rihanna's number 1 single "Umbrella" I was hoping the rain would stop so she could put the umbrella away! But after seeing the video for the first single off of her third studio album "Good Girl Gone Bad" I was hooked.

I find myself singing Umbrella numerous times throughout the course of the day, and if you know me then you know there's always music or choreography in my head, but lately it's just been Umbrella. Oh my God! Am I becoming a Rihanna fan?

I caught her performance on the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday and although she has a hit she still needs some polishing on her performance skills. Was it just me or was it extremely weird to see Jay-Z on stage without Beyonce? I swear I was waiting for B to come on stage and give us one good ole' African dance!

Rihanna is beautiful and I give her props for singing live despite her limited vocal ability, but the performance never seemed to climax. Rumor has it that she wants to dethrone Beyonce. I would want nothing more than to see someone send Beyonce on a long vacation, but Rihanna is going to have to step up her game if she wants to achieve Beyonce's status.

Clay Cane writes a hilarious but accurate review of Rhianna's new cd here . You can also check out my second favorite single "Breakin Dishes" off of her new cd here . Wow! I'm really turning into a fan...HELP!

@Darian: Now you know this post would bring OUT Bee's fans! Before i get into that, i have say i'm with you on rihanna's umbrella song. Soon as i heard it, i grab my umbrella, LOL! I love the song, i'm not a big fan of rihanna, but this is the only song that i play over and over from her!

Now as far as rihanna taking Bee's place, i don't think so! Rihanna has a long way to go.Her singing is okay, but it's not close beyonce's level. I'm partially with you Bee could use a lil rest. I'll say until year 2009. Good post Darian, even though i sense some anti-Bee sentiments, LOL! But i get it!
