Did you know that the song “Umbrella” was originally written by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm] in mind?

L.A. Reid at Island Def Jam saw the song and sent it to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm].

It’s a good thing she really wanted to record it because it put her on the map! Plus it didn’t hurt to have hip-hop icon [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm] featured. It’s still the biggest hit of Rihanna’s career.

It reached number one all across the world, was nominated for GRAMMY Awards for Song and Record of the Year, and won the GRAMMY for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
