Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born in Barbados in 1988 and began singing at just seven years old. When she was 15, she was introduced to influential producer, Evan Rogers, who was impressed enough to invite Rihanna over to his home in Connecticut, to record a four-track demo, which included what would become her first hit, “Pon Da Replay”. In 2005, the demo disc began doing the rounds and she found herself in a meeting with Jay-Z and L.A. Reid, at Def Jam Records. Once they'd heard her sing, she was signed on the spot, and she moved permanently to the States in Spring 2005, moving in with Rogers and his family.
“Pon Da Replay” was released in August 2005, and was a Top 10 hit in fifteen countries. Her debut album, Music of The Sun, came out at the same time and sold two million copies. Rihanna quickly began work on her second studio album, whilst supporting Gwen Stefani on her US tour. The lead single from A Girl Like Me (2006), “SOS” was her first US No.1 and the second single, “Unfaithful” reached the Top 10 in over a dozen countries. Later in 2006 she headlined her own tour, then appeared with Pussycat Dolls on their UK tour in 2007.
Good Girl Gone Bad (2007) was Rihanna's third studio album and was co-produced by will.i.am, Sean Garrett and Timbaland, and saw her adopt a raunchier image, with faster, more uptempo dance tunes. The album hit No.1 in several countries, including the UK (but only No.2 in America), and spawned four huge hits; “Shut Up And Drive”, “Don't Stop The Music”, “Hate That I Love You”, and the worldwide smash, “Umbrella”, which stayed at the top spot for ten consecutive weeks in the UK. The album was re-released in the summer of 2008, as Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded, and featured three new songs, including “Take A Bow”, a return to her ballad roots. The 2007 MTV Music Awards saw Rihanna nominated for four awards, winning two, and she received her first Grammy in 2008.
Her performance at the same awards show a year later, however, was cancelled, after she was assaulted by then-boyfriend, Chris Brown, who was later sentenced to five years probation for the attack. Also in 2009, Rihanna collaborated with Kanye West, Jay-Z (earning another Grammy in the process), and released her fourth studio album, Rated R, which again sold over a million copies, and was followed by her Last Girl On Earth world tour.
In summer 2010, Rihanna joined forces with Eminem for “Love The Way You Lie”, which reached No.1 in over a dozen countries, and in October the same year she published a self-titled autobiography, as well as setting up her own company to deal with all her music and franchise activities, including perfume and clothing. Her fifth studio album, Loud, was released in November 2010, and featured the hit singles “Only Girl (In The World)”, “What's My Name?” and “S&M”. In October 2011, she collaborated with Coldplay on their album track “Princess of China”, and also aided X Factor USA judge, L.A. Reid in selecting his final acts.
Her sixth studio album, Talk That Talk, was released in November 2011, and the same month she became the biggest-selling singles artist of 2011 in the UK. In 2012, she will appear in the film Battleship.
