Timbaland Ends Rihanna UK Chart Reign

Published: Monday 30th Jul 2007 by Sam
After a record-breaking 10 weeks at the top of the Official UK Singles Chart, Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’ has been dethroned by Timbaland’s ‘The Way I Are’. The track, which features newcomer Keri Hilson, swapped its #3 postion with Rihanna to claim the top spot. It’s not bad news for the Bajan singer whose next single ‘Shut Up & Drive’ rockets #65-#18 on the chart – based on downloads alone.
Finally! ‘Umbrella’ was a grower, but after a while it was like ‘who’s still buying this?’. Considering I feel ‘The Way I Are’ to be one of the better tracks from Timbaland’s overhyped ‘Shock Value’ CD, it’s great to see the track enjoying chart success. Rihanna really seems to be doing it BIG over here too, with ‘Shut Up & Drive’ on course to peak at a high position.
Any thoughts?

    Finally.
    This song couldn’t stay No. 1 forever now could it?
    I don’t think Shut Up and Drive would do very well in the charts. Maybe it will, maybe not. =\
    The Way I Are is a good song.
