Rihanna

Robyn Rihanna Fenty (born February 20, 1988), known professionally as Rihanna, is a Barbadian singer, actress, and fashion designer. Born in Saint Michael, Barbados, her career began upon meeting record producer Evan Rogers in late 2003 through mutual friends; she recorded demo tapes with his guidance. Her tape was posted to several record labels, and she subsequently signed a contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for its then-president, hip-hop producer and rapper Jay-Z. Her debut album, Music of the Sun (2005) and its follow-up A Girl Like Me (2006) peaked in the top ten on the US Billboard 200; the former featured the commerical hit song "Pon de Replay" while the latter produced her first Billboard Hot 100 number-one single, "SOS".

She became a household name through her third album Good Girl Gone Bad in 2007, and its chart-topping lead single "Umbrella." The album and its 2008 Reloaded re-release were nominated for nine Grammy Awards, winning her the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "Umbrella". From 2009 to 2012, following the outrage caused by relationship abuse issues with her boyfriend, R&B star Chris Brown, she annually released four Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) platinum certified albums: Rated R (2009), Loud (2010), Talk That Talk (2011), and her first Billboard 200 number one album Unapologetic (2012). The same year, she starred in her theatrical feature film debut, Battleship.

Rihanna has sold over 150 million records worldwide.
