Question of the Day

Mar 12, 2017

Yesterday, we asked: Before Rihanna recorded “Umbrella,” two other singers were in talks to get the song. Name them.

Congrats to Craig Pittman, who first tweeted a half-correct answer and, like any good reporter, quickly followed up with a CORRECTION tweet to set things straight.
