    I'm glad she came out with this version. Now, you can really hear that she CANNOT sing. She's needs some serious voice lessons. Until then, she better stay away from acoustic.

  40. coolestpersonever says – reply to this

    its very pretty. it's still an equal amount of annoying. and she's still pretty, even with her massive five-head.

    It sounds horrible. And what makes this even sadder is that there are artists out there that can cover this song and make it sound 50x better than the original. And there are people who are actually saying this new version sounds good… wtf are some of you smoking? Her voice sounds so shaky - its almost unbearable to listen to. It sounds so awkward. Give it up Rihanna. You work best when you're in a studio, where the producers can pretty much computerize your voice to make you sound better.

    FYI: You can't "cover" your own song. You can reinterpret it or do another version. "Covering" your own song is a contradiction in terms.

  48. i love janet says – reply to this


    48

    The original was a better version because the production disguised how horrible her voice is. This version puts it all out there in all it's ear drum breaking glory.

  49. sara says – reply to this


    49

    am i the only person who finds her voice very nasally and irritating?

  50. chezir says – reply to this


    50

    I think she was just p*ssed that Mandy Moore rocked her song better than she did so she had to do her own acoustic version. I don't like it - thinks she sounds awful.

  51. Sara says – reply to this


    51

    OK, this version of the song is simply beautiful. She can do no wrong!!

    Both her and Beyonce try DESPERATELY to look and be white.

    YOU
    ARE
    NOT
    A
    WHITE
    GIRL
    RIHANNA

    Leave the white girl clothes and the white men to white women!!!!!!!!!!!!

  56. dumbPerez says – reply to this


    56

    Actually Dumbass, those aren't new lyrics. If you had listened to the album version of "Umbrella," you would have known the "it's pourin' rain" was always there.

    Before you make statements, at least have the fucking nerve to fact-check!

  60. Maria says – reply to this

    MANDY MOORE DID IT FIRST!!!

    Maybe she thought Mandy actually made that song better and that's why now she's doing it. Hmmmm???

  61. Rihanna is a LOSER says – reply to this


    61

    The only reason PEREZ likes her and FATTY Jennifer Hudson is SOLELY because they pose some sort of competition to BEYONCE.

    She is a black girl from the ISLANDS who tries her BEST to be a WHITE American.

    Weaves and chasing white boys. She WISHES she were white.

    Re: Fake black girl

    First off no guy cares what a girl looks like if she is Hot, and you are just jealous of her anyway..haha what a loser..What is dressing white…hahaha Fashion is Fashion..What a dumb bitch..Rihanna is in the worldwide fashion loop and you are not, so i understand you being jealous. She is rich, you are not, She is thin, your are fat, She is pretty, you are fugly..The hate is totally justified..we all understand.

  66. u r ugly says – reply to this

    give it up. i was stuck at heathrow airport for hours and a store in the lounge had that shitty song on a loop all fucking afternoon. it went on for hours. it's hilarious that she's milking it even more. what are we locked into some friggin' time zone or something. crap. we're tired of it 'ol rihanna thunder thighs. give it up.

  70. pjw says – reply to this

    1 - this is old.

    2 - you cant 'cover (your) own song', only remix it.

    3 - it's not accoustic. If its got extra production in it rather than just that guitar (which it does), its not accoustic, its a regular track.

    4 - Can Rhianna sing??? NO! She's just whinges….

  71. Deep says – reply to this

    This version is amazing! So much better than the original!

    Re: shut up – hey 'shut up', rihanna ain't thin - she's got a serious case of thunder thighs. open your eyes.

    and P.S - 'Umbrella' wasn't the biggest song of the year, 'Irreplaceable' was. 'Umbrella' was No.2.

    75

    Give me Alicia Keys any day.

    I doubt anyone is jealous of that girl Rihanna.

  76. Kristen says – reply to this


    76

    I actually prefer Mandy Moore's cover of this song. Mandy's got a lot more soul in her voice than Rhianna. She should stick to the upbeat version and let Mandy Moore take care of the acoustic.

  77. In All Honesty says – reply to this


    77

    This was first done by Mandy Moore during some celebrity cover contest. I liked hers better…I had never heard the original and was vastly disappointed by the original. Even this isn't as good. Oh well.

    Re: Fake black girl

    You're such a fucking idiot. What exactly are "WHITE PEOPLE CLOTHES"??
    I didnt know that designers designated certain clothes to be only worn by whites and others to only be worn by blacks. Stop the racist bullshit, Just because she isnt conforming to the norm of what black people supposedly dress like doesnt mean she's desperatly trying to be white. YOu white people think way too highly of yourselves. You probably live in a tanning salon to keep your pasty, deathly pale skin looking more like ours. Fucking bitch.

  84. Fake black girl says – reply to this


    84

    I am a actually a big fan of Jessica Alba, Alicia Keys. Jordin Sparks, Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, Xtina, Christina Milian, Mariah and the like. They are all 1000 times better looking than Rihanna and I love how they are true to themselves.

    No, I'm not fat or even as dark as Rihanna since I favor Alicia's hue.

    IF you are from 'the islands' dont adopt an American accent when it suits you.

    i never liked the original
    but this is better

  90. Chris says – reply to this

    It's not considered a cover if it's your own song, idiot. People do acoustic versions of their songs all the fucking time and it's not called a cover.

    A cover is ONLY when another artist is "covering" another artist's song.

    Fat pig, get your facts straight.
