Def Jam recording artist Rihanna is gearing up for the release of her third album. The first single from the currently untitled project is set to be sent to radio on March 28th. It is reportedly to be a track called ‘Umbrella’ featuring Jay Z (hmm…); the song was produced by Terius “The Dream” Nash (Nivea’s husband). I personally think Rihanna as an artist is just one big rush-job. The girl only hit the scene in summer 05 with ‘Pon De Replay’, they rushed out another album a few months later and now shes about to drop her 3rd album already. Guess they’re trying to milk her for all the money they can.
Speaking of Rihanna, a video of the Bajan beauty singing at aged 16 has surfaced. The performance, at a local talent show, is of Mariah’s ‘Hero’. Why why why do so many girls convince themselves that they can carry a Mariah track? This is terrible…really. She apparently won as well! LOL. The judges must have been tone-deaf….
