Robyn Rihanna Fenty (born February 20, 1988), known solely by her middle name Rihanna is a Barbadian singer-songwriter and occasional model. She rose to fame with the release of her debut album Music of the Sun in 2005 which contained the Worldwide dance-hall smash “Pon De Replay”.

In 2006, she released sophomore album A Girl Like Me which spawned hit singles “S.O.S. (Rescue Me)” and “Unfaithful”. This album saw her move slowly away from her dance hall roots in a more commercial R&B direction.

2007 saw Rihanna become a megastar with the record breaking hit “Umbrella”, the first single from her hugely successful Good Girl Gone Bad. That album and its 2008 re-issue Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded went on to release a further seven successful singles including “Disturbia”, “Don't Stop the Music”, “Shut Up and Drive” and Breakin' Dishes”. The album saw her move in a more poppy direction but still retained some of the R&B and dance-hall sounds from her earlier albums.

In February 2009, Rihanna's personal life made headlines when she was beaten up by her then boyfriend and fellow singer Chris Brown. Later that year Rihanna reinvented herself with her fourth album Rated R which proved to be a vastly different piece sonically. The release saw her take on a more edgy look and sound, being more noticeably darker than her previous works, perhaps a reaction to her personal life. Further the album contains large elements of hip-hop, dubstep and rock and saw Rihanna co-write a large amount of the album's material.

Late 2010 saw the release of Loud, a more rounded, sexier album that appeared to have close ties to earlier sounds as well as defining songs such as the provocative "S&M" and dance anthem "Only Girl (In the World)".

Rihanna has participated in successful collaborations with Ne-Yo, Jay-Z, Kanye West, T.I. and Maroon-5. She is known as one of Barbados' most successful singers and acts as a cultural ambassador for her home country. Rihanna shares similar music style with fellow Caribbean singers Shontelle, Sean Kingston and Livvi Franc while also sharing similarities with American R&B singers such as Beyoncé and Ciara. « hide
