Singer belts out unique version of Umbrella at Brit Awards

Rihanna teamed up with The Klaxons for a special rendition of her hit single Umbrella at last night’s Brit Awards.

The singer and the indie band wowed crowds with the unique collaboration.

Jamie Reynolds, James Righton, Simon Taylor-Davis and Steffan Halperin are said to be huge fans of Rihanna and worked snippets of their track Golden Skans into the track.

The 20-year-old was so happy with the result, she’d like to see the recording race up the charts.

‘It’s a different tempo and everything,’ she tells 6music, ‘But I actually want to release a version like that. Maybe the same version. I really, really liked it.’

And it wasn’t the night’s only surprise pairing. Beth Ditto, 27, teamed up with flamboyant Mika, 24, to perform her Gossip tune Standing In The Way Of Control to open the Earl’s Court bash.
