    Rhianna has a really harsh, grating voice and Jay-Z makes it predictably crap.

    Just leave it to Bono, he's good at this sort of thing.
    Your sig is brilliant. But you're wrong about the song. I suppose you can't have everything. :p:

    Rihanna's cover of Redemption Song is one of her nicest song since a long time.

    It is a charity song, he won't get paid.

    Even if he doesnt get any money from it (doubtful) hes still getting more well-known because of it..which leads to more money etc etc..

    Crumble out of the 3, currently Jay-Z is doing the best in terms of commercial success. This track wasn't recorded to win a Grammy or something, all proceeds are going to help Haiti. So by having Jay-Z on the track it will sell a lot more thus making more money for Haiti. It's currently no.1 on the American iTunes so it's not doing so bad. I think the song is alright and Jay-Z does a decent job, nothing special, hopefully it will raise a lot for Haiti.
    It would sell more if it was a better song.

    The fact that you think Jay Z does a decent job is akin to Arsenal winning the league. Preposterous.

    I know you've prepared yourself with a harddrive full of crumble pictures for the next few weeks, but it will be between us and Chelsea for the title.

    As for the song, they came up with it in 1 day and it's for charity, it's hardly going to be one of the best of all time. As long as it sells well that is all that matters.

    Wtf?? Why would Jay-Z need a charity song to get more well-known? He's been one of the biggest rap artists for 2 decades now and I think he might just have enough money by now without the need to take profit from a charity single or use it to make himself more rich.
