Biography

Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born in Saint Michael, Barbados on February 20th, 1988. Her mother, Monica, worked as an accountant, and her father, Ronald, was employed as a warehouse supervisor. Her parents divorced when she was fourteen years old. At the age of fifteen she formed a singing group with two other girls from her school. As part of this group, she was introduced to record producer Evan Rogers, who liked her look and sound enough to help her launch her solo career in the United States. Once she turned sixteen, Rogers and his wife welcomed Rihanna as a live-in guest in their home in Stamford, Connecticut, where she began her career in earnest.

In August of 2005, after signing with Def Jam Records, she released her first single, "Pon de Replay," and her first album, Music of the Sun. Both created music industry buzz and peaked in the top ten on the Billboard charts. The single "Pon de Replay" was not only commercially successful, it was also used extensively in various television shows during the later part of 2005.

This early success opened the door for her second album, A Girl Like Me, which proved to be even greater than it's predecessor. The album went platinum, peaked at #5 on the charts, and its hit song, "SOS," was Rihanna's first number one single.

In 2007, she released her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, to great critical acclaim. The single "Take a Bow" skyrocketed to the top of both U.S. and international billboard charts, and was followed two more top ten hits in quick succession, "Don't Stop the Music" and "Hate That I Love You." The singles "Take A Bow," "Disturbia," and "Rehab," off the 2008 re-release of that album (Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded) kept Rihanna on the map until her 2009 album, Rated R, was released.

Quotes

  • "Success for me isn't a destination. It's a journey. Everybody's working to get to the top but where is the top? It's all about working harder and getting better and moving up and up."
  • "I would sing in the mirror, holding a brush to my mouth like it was a microphone. The neighbors would always be complaining about how loud I was singing."
