(L-R): JAY-Z & Rihanna at the 2008 GRAMMYs
GRAMMY Rewind: Witness Rihanna Accept Her First-Ever GRAMMY Win With JAY-Z For "Umbrella"
For the latest edition of GRAMMY Rewind, revisit the moment when an almost-20-year-old Rihanna took home her very first golden gramophone at the 50th GRAMMY Awards in 2008. She, along with collaborator and fellow superstar JAY-Z, won Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for their massive No. 1 hit "Umbrella," from RiRi's 2007 album, Good Girl Gone Bad.
Watch their full acceptance speech below in which the stunning duo has a hilarious back-and-forth with the mic. Taylor Swift—both women were first-time nominees at the time—and Juanes present the award.
"Umbrella," RiRi's second No. 1 hit on Billboard's Hot 100, was also nominated for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year that night. She also made her debut on the GRAMMY stage that evening in fittingly epic fashion, performing her winning song with iconic funk band, The Time.
