There comes a time for every pop star when something magical happens. A time when all the stars align, and they create a moment that launches them from mere promising talent to household name in an instant. This week on Chart Attack, we explore certified pop icon Rihanna’s massive ‘summer’ anthem ‘Umbrella’ and how it shaped her legend for years to come.
We also say hello to Jay-Z, meet one of soap’s most dastardly villains, and revisit a bonkers Eurovision moment for the ages, as we dive into all things summer 2007.
