Rihanna moved to the United States in 2005 after being born in Saint Michael and raised in Barbados' Bridgetown, Barbados. Def Jam Recordings signed her in 2005.

Following the launch of her first two studio albums Music of the Sun (2005) and A Girl Like Me (2006), both of which were inspired by Caribbean music and peaked in the top ten of the US Billboard 200 charts, she received a lot of attention.

Good Girl Gone Bad (2006), Rihanna's third studio album, included more elements of dance-pop and catapulted her to greater fame, establishing her as a leading figure in the music industry and a sex symbol.

Rihanna was given her first Grammy Award for her first Grammy Award, winning Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, according to the song's international chart-topping single "Umbrella." Rihanna's fusion of pop, dance, and R&B will be released on her next four studio albums, including the Grammy Award-winning Unapologetic (2012).

Both four albums combined experimentation in a variety of musical styles and solidified Rihanna's international chart success, with Unapologetic being her first number one album in the United States.

"Rude Boy," "Only Girl (In the World)," "What Is My Name," the records spawned a string of chart-to-top hits, including "What Is My Name?" "We Found Love," "Diamonds," and "Stay" are among the "Stay" segments on "S&M."

After her release from Def Jam, her eighth studio album, Anti (2016), showcased her artistic imagination.

It was her second number one album in the United States, and it featured the chart-topping hit "Work."

Rihanna has worked with recording artists such as Drake, Eminem, and Calvin Harris on top of solo recordings. Rihanna is one of the world's top-selling music artists, having sold over 250 million albums.

She has had 14 top-one singles and 31 top-ten singles in the United States, as well as 30 top-ten entries in the United Kingdom.

Nine Grammy Awards, 13 American Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, and six Guinness World Records have been cited among her accomplishments.

Forbes ranked her as one of the top ten most influential celebrities in 2012 and 2014, and Time named her as one of the 100 most influential people in the country twice (2012 and 2018).

Rihanna is best known for her contributions to humanitarian causes, entrepreneurial ventures, and the fashion industry, in addition to her successful music career.

Clara Lionel Foundation, cosmetics brand Fenty Beauty, and fashion house Fenty under LVMH are among the founders of non-profit organization Clara Lionel Foundation.

Barbados' government appointed her as an ambassador for education, tourism, and investment in 2018.

Early life

Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born in Saint Michael, Barbados, on February 20, 1988. She is the niece of accountant Monica (née Braithwaite) and warehouse supervisor Ronald Fenty. Her mother is an Afro-Guyanese, while her father is a Barbadian of African, Irish, English, and Scottish descent. Rihanna has two brothers, Rory and Rajad Fenty, as well as two half-sisters and a half-brother from her father's side, who were born to different mothers from his previous marriages. She grew up in a three-bedroom bungalow in Bridgetown and sold clothes with her father in a street stall. Her childhood was greatly affected by her father's alcoholism and crack cocaine use, which contributed to her parents' difficult marriage. Rihanna's father used to physically assault her mother, and Rihanna would attempt to get in between them to break up fights.

Rihanna had numerous CT scans for the excruciating headaches she suffered as an infant, remarking, "The doctors even thought it was a tumor because it was so painful." By the time she was 14 years old, her parents had divorced, and her health began to improve. She grew up listening to reggae music. She attended Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School and Combermere School, where she worked alongside emerging international cricketers Chris Jordan and Carlos Brathwaite. Rihanna, an 11-year-old boy, served in an army cadet program, where later Barbadian singer-songwriter Shontelle was her drill sergeant. Despite deciding to graduate from high school, she decided instead to pursue a career in music.

Personal life

In Lower Manhattan, Rihanna owns a $14 million penthouse. She bought a house in West London for £7 million in June 2018, in order to be closer to her work with her FENTY fashion brand. Rihanna's Hollywood Hills mansion went up for auction in December 2018 after a break-in six months before. According to reports, the mansion went for $10.4 million.

In 2012, Forbes first began reporting on Rihanna's income.

In 2007, Rihanna began dating American singer Chris Brown. She began a new off-again relationship with Canadian rapper Drake in February 2009, which spanned from 2009 to 2016. Rihanna rekindled her friendship with Brown during a January 2014 interview with Rolling Stone, although they were still under arrest for their 2009 domestic violence lawsuit. Their reunion came as a result of persistent media speculation that erupted throughout 2012. Brown said in May 2013 that he and Rihanna had broken up again. Rihanna began dating Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel in 2017. In January 2020, the two countries broke apart.

During an interview with GQ on May 19, 2021, American rapper ASAP Rocky announced that he and Rihanna are now in a relationship. The couple had a baby on January 31, 2022, it was revealed. Rihanna had give birth to a boy in Los Angeles on May 19, 2022.

Rihanna's scheduled appearance at the 51st Annual Grammy Awards on February 8, 2009, was postponed. Chris Brown, her boyfriend at the time, had physically assaulted her, according to forensic evidence. He reacted aggressively to the police and was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats. Brown was charged with assault and making criminal charges on March 5, 2009. Thanks to a leaked photograph from the police department, which revealed that Rihanna had sustained serious physical harm, an organisation called STOPARAzzi also suggested "Rihanna's Law," which, if enacted, would "block law enforcement agencies from publishing photos or facts that attacks crime victims." The "nonstop coverage of the Rihanna/Brown case has raised a number of questions regarding the anonymity of suspected domestic violence victims, including the decision by almost every major news outlet to reveal the identity of the perpetrator, which is not uncommon in domestic-violence cases." During a preliminary hearing in Los Angeles on June 22, 2009, Rihanna was ordered to appear. Brown pleaded guilty to criminal charges on June 22, 2009. Brown received five years of probation and was barred from running 50 yards (46 meters) further from Rihanna unless attending public performances, which will be reduced to ten yards (9 meters).

In a pre-recorded Larry King Live interview on September 2, 2009, Brown discussed the domestic violence case, his first public interview on the subject. As he talked about growing up in a household with his mother being constantly assaulted by his stepfather, he was accompanied by his mother, Joyce Hawkins, and attorney Mark Geragos. "I'm in shock" when learning the full story about Brown's assault of Rihanna "because, first of all, I am not who I am as a person, and that is not who I am."


Rihanna Career

Music career

Rihanna formed a musical trio with two of her classmates in Barbados, 2003. "The moment Rihanna stepped into the room, it was like the other two girls didn't exist," the girl group auditioned with American record producer Evan Rogers, who explained, "it was like the other two girls didn't exist." Rihanna went to Rogers' hotel room, where she gave renditions of Destiny's Child's "Emotion" and Mariah Carey's "Hero." Rogers arranged a second meeting with Rihanna's mother, then welcomed Rihanna to the United States to record some demo tapes that could be sent to record labels. Recordings were irregular, taking about a year because she was only able to record during school holidays. The demo tapes "Pon de Replay" and "The Last Time" were two songs on her debut album Music of the Sun, and she eventually included "Pon de Replay" and "The Last Time" on the demo tape. Rihanna was signed to Syndicated Rhythm Productions in Rogers' and Carl Sturken's production firm, Syndicated Rhythm Productions, the same year.

The demo by Rihanna was sent out to Def Jam Recordings, where Jay Brown, an A&R executive at the record label, was one of the first to hear the performance. Brown appeared on the demo tape for rapper Jay-Z, who had been named president and CEO of Def Jam and had just been posted on the internet. When Jay-Z first heard the song "Pon de Replay," he said it was too large for her. Despite being skeptical, Rihanna was invited to audition for the brand. Rihanna auditioned for Def Jam in New York City, where Jay-Z introduced her to music mogul Antonio "L.A." Reid in early 2005. She sang Whitney Houston's "For the Love of You" at the audition, as well as "Pon de Replay" and "The Last Time" on the demo. After she sang her forthcoming single "Pon de Replay," Jay-Z was absolutely positive about signing her. L.A. Reid, Reid's manager, was also impressed with her audition, telling Jay-Z not to let Rihanna leave the building until the deal was signed. Reid pleaded with Jay-Z and his crew to end the contract, which culminated in a six-album record with Def Jam. She waited in Jay-Z's office until 3:00 a.m. to get lawyers to draft a deal because he wanted to stop her from signing with another name. Rihanna dropped other meetings with record labels and moved from Barbados to the United States to live with Rogers and his wife.

Jay-Z and his crew assisted Rihanna's debut album on Def Jam and spent the next three months recording and finishing her debut album. Rogers and his production partner Carl Sturken were among her first studio album's completed, and she worked with various designers to get their debut studio album out of the box. "Pon de Replay" was selected as the best song to pick as a lead single in the summer market, out of many others. "Pon de Replay," her debut single under her mononym "Rihanna," was released in May 2005. It has thrived around the world, with some countries ranking in the top five in fifteen countries, including No. 9 in the top five. 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and the UK Singles Chart.

On September 8, 2017, Fenty Beauty's first series was available in over 150 countries in both bricks and online. It featured a variety of foundations, highlighters, bronzers, blush compacts, lip glosses, and blotting sheets, and was lauded for its broad collection of skin tones. The breadth of its product range was cited by Time Magazine as one of "The 25 Best Inventions of 2017" based on its breadth. The brand, which has been dubbed the "Fenty Effect," changed the way other cosmetic companies approached diversity in marketing and product formulation: "Now beauty stores – niche, company, and those in between – are expanding their color palettes to include a wider variety of skin tones." The new standard was four shades.

Savage X Fenty, Rihanna's lingerie brand, was launched in 2018. Rihanna's dream of creating an inclusive brand was born in the line. Products are available in a variety of shades to suit all skin tones and a variety of sizes. In September 2018, she represented the brand at the New York Fashion Week. The brand has been lauded by the public for including plus size models in its advertisements, but some consumers complain that there are not enough plus sizes.

Rihanna sponsored the brand in a show at the Barclays Center in September 2019, bringing together models Alex Wek, Bella Hadid, Cara Delevingne, actor Laverne Cox, and musicians Normani and 21 Savage. DJ Khaled, Halsey, ASAP Ferg, Big Sean, Migos, Fat Joe, Fabolous, and Tierra Whack were among the featured performers. On September 20, 2019, the show premiered on Amazon Prime Video as the Savage X Fenty Show. In 2020, the spectacle was revived for the third time, with performances from Travis Scott, Rosal'a, Bad Bunny, Ella Mai, Lizzo, Big Sean, Miguel, Roddy Ricch, and Rico Nasty. On October 2, 2020, this version debuted on Amazon Prime Video.
