The Song: "Umbrella," from 2007's Good Girl Gone Bad
The Controversy: Sometimes, Rihanna creates controversy even when she's not trying! At the height of the popularity of "Umbrella," the United Kingdom was going through a period of historic rainfall. And, as a result, the newspaper The Sun asked readers to boycott the song. They failed and the song remained at No. 1 for just about the entire summer. But, it became an interesting soundtrack for the rainy region.
