Dork’s Chart Attack takes on a true giant of pop as we tackle Rihanna’s iconic rainy summer smash, ‘Umbrella’

This week, you can stand under our chart umbrellas as we brave the biblical rains of the summer of 2007 to tell you the story of Rihanna’s most enduring hit.

Dork’s all-new podcast Chart Attack continues with its second episode, out today (Wednesday 16th August), all about one of the true giants of Pop, Rihanna

In season one, we jump in our big pop time machine and revisit ten iconic number ones from the turn of the millennium onwards. Exploring the highs and lows of the 21st-century UK chart, we’ll be dissecting cultural milestones, iconic pop stars, telling classic pop stories, and taking a trip down memory lane ourselves. Most importantly, we’ll be asking the crucial pop question: is this a good song?

This week, you can stand under our chart umbrellas as we brave the biblical rains of the summer of 2007 to tell you the story of Rihanna’s most enduring hit. A number one that dominated the year and firmly established her pop legend for years to come, we’ll also say hello to Jay-Z, explore a bonkers Eurovision moment, and work out if it’s ok to simply set fire to your exam paper if you decide you don’t want to do it. Also – importantly – two great pop impressions.
