    Mary J. Blige recently revealed some surprising news regarding Rihanna's breakthrough single "Umbrella." Apparently the song was originally written for the R&B queen.

    "It was during the Grammy time and I was really, really busy," Blige told MTV. "I heard it and was like, 'Oh my goodness, that's a smash. I love this song.' And [producer 'Tricky' Stewart] was like, 'It's yours.' So in the midst of it being mine, they were probably telling [Rihanna] it was hers."

    She added, "I was so glad that she caught it and knocked it out of the park. It's still one of my favorite songs to date."

    Blige's cool-headed response might have something to do with Stewart's involvement in "Just Fine," the first single off her eighth studio album, Growing Pains. It's due out on December 18, just in time for last-minute Christmas shoppers.
