i guess everyone has already heard the mega-hit song “umbrella” performed by rihanna featuring jay-z (from rihanna’s third studio album, “good girl gone bad”) which topped the charts worldwide. her video won video of the year and also won monster single of the year at 2007 mtv video music awards.
the song “umbrella” has been incredibly successful, probably one of the greatest hits of the decade. it has been quickly covered across genres by several artists including scott simons (this one is my favorite!), mandy moore, mariè digby, illscarlett, tegan and sara, john west, ross copperman, biffy clyro, manda palmer, mcfly.
the lastest redition has done by italian pop-punk band, “vanilla sky,” they also recorded the song umbrella exclusively on their myspace with wicked video that would make everyone fall out of a chair.
