Pop-soul diva Rihanna, who headlines KDWB's Jingle Ball Monday at Xcel Energy Center, has had more No. 1 pop hits in the '00s than any other female artist. A friend played her a new song that she envies and adores -- "What It Is" by Sophia Fresh, a female trio discovered by T-Pain.

"It's a really new song, and I fell in love with it. I almost wish the song was mine. It's really, really incredible. There's no genre for it. The melody is very pop, but the beat is really gutter. It's a heavy hip-hop beat."
