Rihanna takes over the top of the charts this week as her current single "Umbrella" (featuring Jay-Z), with over 80 million audience, scores a perfect trifecta at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Pop 100, and Hot Digital Songs charts.

Last week, the song made chart history in the U.K. as Rihanna's first #1 there. The video for "Umbrella," directed by Chris Applebaum, stays at #1 on iTunes and the AOL Music Top 40 Videos chart, and is in heavy rotation on MTV, BET and VH-1.

In her U.S television debut, Rihanna will perform the song live with Jay-Z at the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday, June 3rd. Her new album "Good Girl Gone Bad" drops June 5th.

GAME IS TRIPPN

Several unreleased tracks leaked on the net which might be from Game's last album "Doctors Advocate". One joint titled "My Bitch" goes pretty hard at 50 Cent, Jay-Z, and Suge Knight. Here's the transcripts from the song:

50 Cent diss:
"Let me tell you a story about this b*tch I know.. grew up on the south side sucking dicks for doe. Give her a half a dollar and she'll put on a show. Do anything to be in a Dr. Dre video. The b*tch went Hollywood.. One trip to the west coast and got f*cked by this white b*tch had her legs wide open.. but as long as my pockets was fat I didnt give a f*ck where the b*tch was at. My pretty young thang-- she kept my nuts drained ... all the time she was plotting on my aftermath chain. B*tch couldn't stay in here lane..start runnin with this hoe from the south gold grill in her mouth. She put her on the track.. gave her her first thong..introduced her to her two girlfreinds from back home.. fu*cked the industry tryna take the fast route.. ran into a gangster and he turned they ass out."

Jay Z diss:
"From the projects hustled all day.. Ni99as called her Sophie from around the way. Used to play hard to get so they thought she was gay. Booshie b*tch. Who ever thought she was raised in B.K.. moved out the hood.. changed her name to Jay. Told everybody she'll be working with a mill one day. I was introduced to her back in "96, she had a wavey haircut and some big ass lips. At first she was hard to hit.. come to find out the last 10 years she been sucking B.I.G dick. Got a family now.. a house made of bricks. Four grown ass kids and aint none of them sh*t. She still my bi*ch so I stayed around.. but she always tryna Dash when other Dames around. Tryna play the Game.. but I got the b*tch number. She said she wont.. but she'll be back next summer."

Suge Knight diss:
"Last but not least my gangsta b*tch from Compton.. always in and out of jail and sh*t. B*tch tried to burn Snoop, stole chronic from Doc.. blew the whole west coast.. even tried to f*ck Pac. Type of b*tch to stand out in Beverley Hills.. word on the street's he got a few real ni66as killed. I look up now she on my dick.. telling me how she always gonna be my b*tch. Pop up at award shows always following me.., b*tch doing dumb shit.. got a college degree. No pre-nupt.. one ni66a got stuck with her. I was smart I always knew not to f*ck with her. What goes around comes around.. scandolous sh*t. Somebody tried to kill that b*tch.. burnt the bridges..aint had one friend left.. ni66as that know her called her the devil in that red dress." ...

50 cent cashes in on vitamin water.

Coca-Cola has made its largest-ever acquisition with last weeks purchase of Glaceau for $4.1 billion. The bottled drink company, which includes Vitaminwater, Fruitwater, Formula 50 (endorsed by rapper 50 Cent), and Energywater, will give Coca-Cola about 30 per cent of the US market in the rapidly expanding category.

Coca-Cola accounts for 5 percent of the U.S. market for water drinks, while PepsiCo has 45 percent with its SoBe, Aquafina and Propel brands. Sales of such drinks rose about 50 percent last year while soda dropped for the second year in a row, according to John Sicher, the editor of Beverage Digest. The 11-year-old company, based in the New York borough of Queens, had sales of $350 million last year, according to Morgan Stanley analyst Bill Pecoriello. The purchase should be complete in mid-june.

Rapper 50 Cent, who has a 10 percent share in the company, earned about 400 million out of the deal. "It's a perfect match connecting the hottest active lifestyle brand with the full resources of the world's best beverage company," said J. Darius Bikoff, Glacéau founder and chief executive officer. "To best understand today's announcement, you really need to go out, buy a bottle of Vitamin Water and try it for yourself to see how well it works."

"This is an outstanding opportunity for both of our companies to build an expanded active lifestyle business, first in the United States and then around the world," said Muhtar Kent, president and chief operating officer of The Coca-Cola Company. "Glacéau and its brands also provide us with highly attractive longer-term international opportunities. We look forward to discussing with Glacéau's distributors and our bottling partners the best operating model for Glacéau's routes-to-market."
