Producer: Tricky Stewart
Album: Good Girl Gone Bad

There may be no clouds in Jay-Z's stones, but just in case the forecast turns rainy it never hurts to have a platinum smash hit to launch the career of this Caribbean princess of pop. With Tricky Stewart on the boards and The-Dream on lyrics, this song was a perfect pop storm even before Hov blessed it with a pristine sixteen. Ever since this record dropped, Rihanna has been our pick for queen of pop honors (sorry Gaga). Long may she reign.
