Rihanna, R&B singer/ Jay-z's protege has spent the last 10 weeks at the top of the UK single charts- N*1 -with the catchy "Umberella", ella, ella.

19 year-old Rihanna is the first act of this decade to stay put at the number 1 spot for 10 weeks straight since British act Wet, Wet, Wet back in 1994, with "Love is All Around" and one of seven acts in the UK singles chart history to have ever done so.

She is a Barbadian singer spotted and managed by wordsmith, rapper Jay-Z. Rihanna also known as Ri Ri appeared on the music scene back in summer 2005, with "Pon de Replay", followed by several other hits "SOS/ Unfaithful/ Break it Off feat. Sean Paul," now establishing herself as an International No1 success.

You can stand under her umberella come December 2007 at a venue near you- Good Girl Gone Bad UK Tour tickets are now on sale:
