The-Dream: “I Made $15 Million From Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella'”

Published: Tuesday 3rd Jan 2012 by David

In case you didn’t know, songwriting is a very lucrative business.

So lucrative, that while recent years have seen many acts have fall prey to bankruptcy and other financial woes, the writers they enlist to pen their material have gone on to become- in many instances- even more financially secure than some of the industry’s highest paid executives.

Take serial chart topper ‘The Dream’ for instance.

Responsible for Beyonce‘s ‘Single Ladies’, Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby‘ two name just two, the singer-songwriter has risen to become the go to man for any in need of a hit.

Now, he has revealed just how much he earned for penning Rihanna‘s 2007 hit ‘Umbrella‘ and air out his thoughts on ex wife Christina Milian, all during a recent appearance on ‘The Tim Westwood Show‘.

Watch below…

With information like this, it is now no wonder so many acts fight  tooth and nail to have their names placed on the credits of the music they release.

For, whether or not you believe Dream’s ‘$15 million’ claim, the well publicized success of Diane Warren, Esther Dean, Ryan Tedder and the like is a reminder that when it comes to making money in the industry- it is the pen and not the mic creators should be flocking to if they truly hope to secure their income for the long term.

Such a shame Rihanna had nothing to do with cut’s conception, because if she did- she might just have been able to afford an exorcist powerful enough to rid her body of the God forsaken goat that currently resides in her vocal chords.

Your thoughts?

  5. WHUT January 3, 2012

    Whats your point Samantha gurl? Is jigglypuff in the red hoody raking in 90mil from a tour? and CH is this b**** actually suggesting that Maya Angelou’s grandmother in the blonde lacefront is one of these “artist who write their own music?!” LMFAO!!!!!!
    I CANT!!!!

    Good for the Dream for making that amount of money for the song tho. After all umbrella is one of THEE most memorable SMASH records last decade. This should be encouragement for all those who don’t necessarily have the musical gifts like a Rihanna but do have it in the writing to not think they cant make good money on their talents.

  6. Onyx January 3, 2012

    Wow! what a great producer you are Man, i never like his work that much but Umbrella was the s*** back in the day, anyway Sam you make you way to started s*** about Rihanna, i can imagine Sam searching for Rihanna’s bad news everywhere like (Oh! God what else can i say about Rihanna, well i would found something later but now i’m going to make a post about how talented and what a great songwriter, singer and dancer Beyonce is). This site is a joke.

    He’s a SONGWRITER.

    Like Kandi Buruss with Kim Zolciak , that means he lives for people who want to put their vocals on his art and promote his lyrics, regardless of who that is.

    Do you know how many of their songs end in the trash can because nobody wants them?

    Did you know that Britney “During Meltdown” Spears actually passed on “UMBRELLA”?

    You can’t tell me nothing about The-Dream, Ne-Yo and all those urban songwriters. How I wish that Forbes would get in their business and bring us the receipts so people could stop with the nonsense.

    There is a reason why Polow da Don doesn’t need to be the pretty boy anymore and why they say Keri Hilson is worth $25 million on the internet: we all sing and play at least one song written by each one of them (Cue to Kevin Simmons of TSS)

  19. WHUT January 3, 2012

    That a good thing @haterz? Putting your name as a writer on songs when you had nothing to do with writing?

    let alone having a double post for such a BAD LUCK kind of person. you heard my @sam :

    BAD LUCK 😛 !

    BUT this big number is just overrated ! hungry kids in africa could have been happier than rihanna getting a #1 hit !

    i am shocked with this number still. what this piece of s*** did to get paid that much like that ?!

    giving him that money for ” ella , ella , eh , eh , under my umbrella , eh , eh , eh , eh , under my umbrella , eh , eh, eh , eh ” ?!!!

    this s*** just make me sad. ppl who are working hard that hard in developing new drugs to cure world’s most dangerous diseases for example don’t get paid 15 million $ for their efforts. and this piece of crap get that big number ?!!

    what a messed world we are living in. f*** it !

    @Truthteller :

    SL was an international FLOP ?!

    do u know what is the meaning of ” being international” ?!! it is way more than ” billboard charts” man !
    wake UP !

    but @sam :

    rihanna co-wrote lots of her songs , her songwriting isn’t impressive still TBCH , but the girl tried it and did it TBH 😡
    so why being bitter with such point ?!!

    and do not shade Celine h*** !

    songwriting is not that big deal still no matter what ppl try to do. 😡

    this post is clearly a flop 😆

  22. JER January 3, 2012

    “afford an exorcist powerful enough to rid her body of the God forsaken goat that currently resides in her vocal chords.”

    that’s a poorly overly calculated insult and it’s not funny. next time!

  23. JJFAN1814 January 3, 2012

    SINGLE LADIES WAS AN INTERNATIONAL FLOP.
    UMBRELLA MORE SUCCESSFUL. LOL THAT’S A FACT. #S & CHART POSITIONS DON’T LIE.

  27. Onyx January 3, 2012

    Well i’m not a Beyonce fan but one of the few songs from her that i think is Iconic is “Single Ladies” and i think she would be remembere more for this song than her fans favorite single from her “Crazy in Love” to me a mediocre song, and “Single Ladies” was everywhere not maybe worldwide but i remember everybody making funny of the coreography, i think this song give her the Iconic image that she wants.

    *smh*

    @whut? No it’s not good, but is it smart? Yep. It’s common practice in the music industry. Beyonce guaranteed her millions by negotiating publishing and writing writes to all of her songs. Love or hate her, it’s smart business.

    @JJFan1814 – Keep ya s*** movin’ iight? Like I said, it’s SMART BUSINESS. I am no fan of Beyonce however her business skill (Or Matthews business skill) cannot be shitted on.

    Some of y’all need to take music industry 101. Hit up a guy named Moses Avalon so you can learn the business before you try and snatch wigs. LOL.

  30. josh January 3, 2012

    Damn, if he made 15 million off umbrella,
    i can only imagine how much he has made off “single ladies”
    Even “baby”, hes freakin richhhhhhh.

  31. Lax January 3, 2012

    Huuuuuuuuum, Now i find this verrrrrrry Suspect i mean after all of the Songs, After all of the Rihanna Ain’t S*** and we or speaking on how much Rihanna the 90 Million Dollar Bad Ass Paid “Dream’s Ass ” Way Back in 2007???????
    I Mean to me it matters a dam who wrote, Produced or what EVVVVVVVVER
    It still had to have BAD ASS RIHANNA TO DELIVER THEM KILLER HOOKS ON THAT ,,,,ELLA, ELLA, ELLA AND THAT “UMBRELLA SONG WAS RIHANNA’S BREAK THROUGH SONG 18X PLATIUM.

    Song is very Suspect to me, Just Saying.

  34. Matty January 3, 2012

    @JOHNVIDAL
    Ya, all Hero proceeds go to Charity. I can’t even imagine what MC pulls in as a song writer!! Even songs like ‘Where are you Christmas’ by faith hill (I musta heard it 1000 times this holiday season, and MC wrote that as well).

    The problem for most performers is that they can’t write their own material >> The problem with producers/writers is they can’t sing most of their material (speaking off … Dream tries, he really does) But unless you got both you ain’t gold Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey, Adele … These are the people who will rake it cash cash Mony for decades to come.

  35. WHUT January 3, 2012

    That may be true @Haterz but at the end of the day Cicely Tyson Senior still comes off as a fraudulent b**** to the general public. I guess your logic is money >>>>>> tarnished rep tho.

  36. RATEDXXX(tricks are for kids) January 3, 2012

    of course the dream made alot of money off umbrella….hes the only one reaping off the songwritting credit…..

    and the song was a huge hit worldwide, not just in the U.S market..

    u know the “U.S market” thats suppose to be the only relevant music market…

    i laugh everytime i see somebody write that s***……..

  37. Lax January 3, 2012

    What other Writer or Producer has stated how much they made for any
    Song, Name them? This is as Crooked as a Barrel full of Rattle Snakes!

  38. JohnVidal January 3, 2012

    @matty
    Agree with you minus one thing: Taylor Swift can´t sing 🙂 To name three I would say Mariah, Adele, Alicia Keys for example

  39. RATEDXXX(tricks are for kids) January 3, 2012

    umbrellla was a bigger hit worldwide than single ladies..

    and…he shares writing credits with beyonce’s fake ass on single ladies….was that a shade. at the beyonce stans?

    i could never become a songwriter to fake bishes like beyonce…again was that a shade?

    i want my 100% writing and publishing credit for a song i wrote…..

    thats y i have respect for mariah, whitney, kelly clarkson, britney, they never take credit off other people hard work

  40. I slay Sam haters January 3, 2012

    Oh god I see ya still coming at Sam it’s 2012 for crying out loud don’t ya get tired of this.

  43. haterzstaypressed January 3, 2012

    @Whut

    LMAO @ Cicely Tyson Senior DAMN! LOL!

    I do think it’s morally and ethically wrong for artists to do that. However at the end of the day, business is business and Beyonce (Mathew Knowles) did good (if not shady) business.

  44. kessa January 3, 2012

    if this is true? WOW.

  45. stop the bulling January 3, 2012

    Just because this man received 15 mil don’t mean Rihanna made great big money also. Writers and Producers get paid big time. Where is the record label get most of the proceed from record sales.

  46. YOu wish January 3, 2012

    beyonce had NOTHING to do with Crazy in Love or Singles Ladies…except to LIE

    so your point?

  47. YOu wish January 3, 2012

    And to credit Beyonce with the smarts is just psycho…Matthew had the brains, see the PETA ambush to see what Beyonce is like at a table….flatline dumbazz

  48. RATEDXXX(tricks are for kids) January 3, 2012

    u can write all the songs you want, if the song doesnt become a hit…than, ur not gonna be making any money

    and if u have to share writing credits and publishing rights with others..bay bay, u aint making much

    thats why the dream made so much money off umbrella..he doesnt have to share with others…and it was a hit worldwide…

    theres alot of money to make in the songwriting world..but u make more, alone…

    not many songwriters wants to share writing credits with singers who doesnt do s*** but show up after the song is writing…..

    see keri hilson..thats one of the reasons she cannot stand beyonce fake ass…

  49. s_w_a_p January 3, 2012

    To correct (I don’t remember your screen name), it was actually Mary J. Blige that was supposed to have gotten “Umbrella”. She has said it in interviews. That song that Britney passed on was “Rockstar 101”. But I’m glad that both artists didn’t get the songs because it wouldn’t have been as big of a success. Be honest. Imagine Mary singing the chorus to “Umbrella”. I love her but uh-uh.

  50. WHUT January 3, 2012

    Shade aside that would really p*** me off as a songwriter if I was putting in tons of work writing and producing song’s then some old crypt keeper chick waltzed in on some “my namez be goin on that s*** yo ass doing right?!” type of s***. I’d have to slap the wrinkles off that senior citizen.

  51. haterzstaypressed January 3, 2012

    THE BOTTOM LINE IS THIS…

    Unless the artist OWNS or CO-OWNS copyright, writing and publishing, the artist will make NOTHING off of the song except a performance royalty (see Mechanical Royalties) that’s negotiated at the time of the signing of his or her contract. It is that simple. You don’t have to write a lick of a song (Man in The Mirror by Michael Jackson is a prime example) however MiJac Music co-owns if not owns the publishing and performance rights.

    I do not know if Rihanna owns the songs that are written for her. If she co-owns the copyright and publishing, then it doesn’t matter if the Dream wrote that song or not because she would OWN IT.

    It is important for those coming up in the industry or aspire to be an artist – negotiate a great royalty rate, and OWN your copyrights/publishing and try to write or co-write your music. Then you will not be cheated by shady labels.

  52. Gilberto January 3, 2012

    Rihanna didn’t got a lot of money from Umbrella. We know her contract sucks. She neither wrote nor produce it.
    The songwriter gets money when he sells the song to a label, gets money every time this song is downloaded and gets money when the song is played on radio.
    That’s why Adele got a lot of money last year, she neither went on a massive tour nor had endorsements therefore the major money came from her album and singles.
    That’s why producers save their best songs to the biggest singers.
    Like I said, it depends a lot of the contract of the artists with his/her label. A singer “X” can get more money selling $1 million singles than a singer “Y” selling $2 million. It’s all about the record deal.

    What does this post have to do with Beyonce’s writing credibility? Nothing!

    Talk about the obsessive compulsive disorder some people (especially r****** stans) have towards anything beyonce. Beyonce brings out the nasty and crazy in most people. Did Bey-Bey pee in your cornflakes? hehehe

    The main topic of discussion here is Dream making 15M from umbrella while the real singer (lol)end up with close to nada, zilch, zero.
    Talk about that instead.
    Atleast Beyonce make sure she gets paid, whether she writes it or not. who freaking care? She’s a business woman, not a label slave.

STANDING TALLER AND HAS THOSE BEAUTIFUL NATURAL GREENISH EYES ON THE PRIZE AND SHES NOT ABOUT TO SETTLE FOR THE OAKIE DOKAIE BECAUSE THERES PEOPLE IN HER CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE WHO HAS HER BEST INTEREST AT HEART BECAUSE THEY GET PAID WHEN SHE GETS PAID DUUUUUUUH!

Bums, when she sings a song u wrote then maybe ur tirade will be validated. Its funny how u non-ambitious non-achieving deadbeats can hide behind aliases thinkin u know how multimillionaire runs her thing. Did any songwriter come crying at your doorstep? Did they complain of being held at gunpoint to fnish a lyric? So what r u barking at? Neyo,The Dream, Ryan Tedder, Diane Warren are all have Bey’s back so dunno exactly whose battle u think ur fighting. Anywho back to ur day job, i know talkin about Bey on a daily basis validates yall existence, losers.

    All the hate on Beyonce but she is cashing that check at the end of the day….What people don’t know a song is more than just writing…..Its Production, writing and vocal arrangements. Also if you changed some words you are credited with writing credit…..

  77. Cramped January 3, 2012

    I hope by the time you’re 50, you’re still on blogs pushin your anti-Beyonce agenda. Your passion is deep

    Yes and this not even suppose to be about Beyonce, but they make it all about her then they discuss about wanting her to disapear.

    so we bragging about other peoples money now….ok

  82. riri January 3, 2012

    rated x sit your ass somwhere please. you are constantly on beyonce ass 24/7. why do you hate her so much? btw do you beyonce personally? because you act as if you do, commenting on personal life! HOW do YOU know she is faking it? HOW do you know she want to be legend? HOW do you know is hitiing the studio because dream said so?

    Btw rated X you are such a hypocrite, everything you accuse Beyonce of, Rihanna has done, I YET to see you throw shades at her (Rihanna). I am not surprised that you comment on Beyonce character and life like you knowher since you also made ridiculous claims about Aaliyah. Like her f***** two men at the same time, you would have to be extremely close to know that has happened. And since you were not close to Aaliyah, you were obviously talking from your ass. Now why the f*** should we take you seriously?

    btw rihanna also takes writing credit. in fact MOST artist are doing this, it is not just beyonce.

    yes, it is not fair. But unlike video and photos (both riri and beyonce have copied), proving an artist has no part in the writing is HARD. Plus, songwriters cannot bite the hands that feed them. There are some who had the guts to complain.

    The only artists that are songwriters are people like adele, Mariah, Alicia Keys and Lady gaga ONLY because they all have written a whole song on their own. But people like beyonce, rihanna, usher, chris brown, Justin Bieier, kayne have all taken false writing credits.

    here a link of songwriter who had the guts to complain about people taking false credit:

    http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/music/news/a312660/rihanna-bieber-deserve-no-writing-credit.html

    NOTICE: she doesnt throw out names like previous riri stans suggested because she would have been SUED by rihanna and her team if she was chatting b*******. kayne would have sued her too.

  83. ISTANN4GAGA January 3, 2012

    Just let the Rih/Bey debate go for one post….

    Beyonce is still slaying whether she writes her songs or not,she’s an R&B MOGUL ffs! (personally,I think some people overexaggerate on how much she doesn’t write)

    Rihanna had a hit with Umbrella (which was the s*** along with Shut up and Drive),and she will continue making hits.(she does write a bit of her music sometimes,too.)

    let it just go for once!

    Beyonce has Rihanna on her playlist and I am SURE Rihanna has Beyonce on her playlist too.

  84. riri January 3, 2012

    on to the suject..

    the dream has also written s*** songs too like run this world urgh and songs for Ciara who has failed to take off in her career. so he does not always write hits…….

  85. riri January 3, 2012

    I don’t even understand why people even compare Beyonce and Rihanna! They both have different image and they both make different music! They both have different personality and they both appeal to different people! And worse of all, they both are from the same circle! They are both friends! They both like each other, IN FACT Rihanna is inspired by Beyonce!

  86. David January 3, 2012

    Single Ladies was not an international “official” single and it still charted!!!!!!!! So how can it be a flopped. “Single ladies”, sold close to 7 million singles world wide. People need to redefine their vocabulary when they think of the word flop!!!

  87. RATEDXXX(tricks are for kids) January 3, 2012

    rolls eyes….i cant with people who gets all emotional over WORDS PEOPLE TYPE ON A BLOg..

    why are people still coming at me, with..why do u hate on beyonce b*******?

    if u know for a fact that i cant stand the broad, why r u coming at?
    ive said it so many damn times..i think shes a fake bish..i think shes overrated as singer..

    i mean really…coming at me with..why u hate her so much is not going to make me like her…GET THE F*** OVER it

  88. RATEDXXX(tricks are for kids) January 3, 2012

    rihanna and beyonce does not run in the same circles….

    .i dont know where the hell this b******* lie came from….

    rihanna said her biggest inspiration is Mariah……

    thats what irks me the most..the stans that bash rihanna, and wanna say, dont bash beyonce because both rihanna and beyonce are friends…..

    the same ones that bash kelly also, but turn around and say they are friends, stop pitting them against each other…

  89. xedos January 3, 2012

    he made that money because the song got a lot of airplay. give that song to most artist it would be a flop.Rihanna may not write the song but she made more than 15mil. it made her career. she just made 90 mil. Whitney , Elvis, Dianna Ross and some of the biggest singers back in the day never wrote a lyric.. this is why beyonce puts her name on every song other people write for her. I think rihanna is an artist who could demand that now ,but i don’t think she’s that type of person.

  90. nothing January 3, 2012

    wrapping up

    this’ once again a song of rihanna she didn’t write herself.

    good for the dream. bad for the “artists” called rihanna.

    she was and is still nuts. just a sexbomb about ot explode her tape. :p

  91. DONT TRY IT B**** January 4, 2012

    I REFUSE to argue over 2 Ancient ass songs!!!! Songle Ladies and Umbrella!? GIRL BYE But of the two Umbrella is my tea though.
    BYE Loves!

  92. TeamBeyonce January 4, 2012

    No wonder Mariah is soooo filthy rich yet she doesnt tour that much. writing all her material and considering all the success she had in the 90s. Its Mind boggling

  93. :l January 4, 2012

    see what i am talking about,when you can wright your own sh-t big pieces of cake like that go,s in to your own pockets instead of some writer are Ghostwriters pocket,no matter how much platinum albums you sold,you an’t making sh-t if some writer is getting the lions share of your cake….people should learn to write there own sh-t working so hard and at the end of the day they end up with only 3-4%..when other interest is added, that,s some high level pimping right there…i am sure Rihanna made more than 90 milli that,s what she got when everyone dip in to it and leave her with..people should learn to help them selves some time by writing there own song nothing against song writers because everyone got to eat..just don’t be depending on them 100%.

  94. xedos January 4, 2012

    not everyone is a song writer. not because you can sing means you can write.how many writers you think get a hit like umbrella? Sometime you just have to leave the song writing to real song writers . just like how some song writers should not sing.
    as I said, Whitney and Elvis 2 of the music business most successful artist never wrote a line in a song . Lots of these artist just put their name on the credits to get the check. if their were no check to get they wouldn’t care.

    I could have sworn the dream wrote umbrella with two other people.

    Anyhow, my thoughts on songwriting are as follows : if you wrote the song you should be credited if you didn’t you shouldn’t.

    Also I don’t consider anyone a “songwriter” until they write an entire song by themselves.
