About Rihanna

Rihanna was born on 20 February 1988 in St. Michael Parish on the Caribbean island of Barbados. Raised in Bridgetown in Barbados.

She is a daughter of Ronald Fenty who was a warehouse supervisor, and Monica Fenty who was an accountant. Rihanna is the eldest of three siblings.

Rihanna’s childhood was marred by her father’s struggles with addictions to alcohol and crack cocaine and her parents’ marital problems — they divorced when she was 14 years old.

As a teenager, Rihanna turned to singing as a release from her troubles at home. She formed a girl group with two classmates; when they were 15 years old, they scored an audition with music producer Evan Rodgers, who was visiting the island with his Barbadian wife.

.

Rihanna was 16 years old she moved to Connecticut in US, with Rogers and his wife to work on recording a demo album and signed with Def Jam Recordings.

She earned significant recognition following the release of her first two studio albums, Music of the Sun (2005) and A Girl like Me (2006), both of which were influenced by Caribbean music and peaked within the top ten of the US Billboard 200 chart.

Rihanna’s third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007), incorporated more elements of dance-pop and catapulted her to greater stardom, establishing her status as a sex symbol and a leading figure in the music industry.

Its international chart-topping single “Umbrella” earned Rihanna her first Grammy Award, winning Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

Rihanna extended her fusion of pop, dance, and R&B on her next four studio albums, Rated R (2009), Loud (2010), Talk That Talk (2011), and the Grammy Award-winning Unapologetic (2012).

All four releases incorporated experimentation of various musical styles and consolidated Rihanna’s international chart success, Unapologetic being her first number-one album in the US.

The records spawned a string of chart-topping singles, including “Rude Boy”, “Only Girl (In the World)”, “What’s My Name?”, “S&M”, “We Found Love”, “Diamonds”, and “Stay”.

Her eighth studio album, Anti (2016), showcased her control over artistic creativity after her departure from Def Jam.

It became her second US number-one album and featured the chart-topping single “Work”. Besides solo materials, Rihanna has collaborated with recording artists such as Drake, Eminem, and Calvin Harris.

.

Having sold over 250 million records, Rihanna is one of the world’s best-selling music artists. She has earned 14 number-one singles, 31 top-ten singles in the US, and 30 top-ten entries in the UK.

Her accolades include nine Grammy Awards, 13 American Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, and six Guinness World Records.

 Forbes ranked her among the top ten highest-paid celebrities in 2012 and 2014, and Time named her as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2012 and 2018.

Alongside a successful music career, Rihanna is well known for her involvement in humanitarian causes, entrepreneurial ventures, and the fashion industry.

In 2018, the Government of Barbados appointed her as an ambassador with duties promoting education, tourism and investment.
