Her studio is amaaaaaaazing! For me it's better than Rihanna's and the best studio of the 13 original.gif

I think Interscope should seriously consider signing her. Her studio version is so good, I keep on replaying it over and over. If she put out a record like this, she could sell easily.

Did anyone also get the feeling that Jimmy Iovine really likes Naima?

I also wanted to add that Naima wrote the reggae part by herself according to Debra byrd:

NAIMA ADEDAPO – “Umbrella” (Rihanna)
With a reggae-rap interlude that she penned herself, and several major dance breaks throughout, the wild-card contestant charted new territory for Idol, and would seem to have taken a big risk in doing so.

DB: It wasn’t a risk, not for her. One of the things that was not said in the interviews [before her performance] was [changing up the song] was her idea. She’s so comfortable with it. And I told her God smiled on her and put her with Tricky [Stewart]. What kind of grace is that? That’s an extraordinary, crazy grace that you’re working with the actual producer of the song. She didn’t even know that she was assigned to that guy [when she chose “Umbrella”].

I remember when she was on the wild card [show], and I thought they were going to take Kendra [instead]. I remember looking at the monitor and I said, “Her song next week is so good! Oooh, it’s too bad!” Because we had already worked on it. After she said what she wanted to do with the song and that’s why she chose it, I said, “Here, write your rap down.” She got pencil and paper and she just started writing — she just wrote and wrote and wrote and wrote. I watched her do it. We had to cut it down. It was 16 bars. Tricky is one of the co-writers [of the original song] — that’s why I’m saying God smiled a great big smile on her, because normally we’d have to clear [Naima’s rap] through other people.

At rehearsal [she didn’t struggle with her breath]. Maybe adrenaline kicks in. You always push it a little harder when there’s an audience in front of you. Just before the reggae part kicks in, she says, “Boom fiy-ah!” She kicks it up to another level. So she probably over-extended herself. You get that rush and you just keep rolling. She and I did work on places where she breathes in the song. We had a breathing road map. I think she worked it out very well. I think she was very impressive. From your standpoint, she may have taken a huge risk, but she would have it no other way. That’s who she is.
