Rihanna is best known as a Barbadian singer and model who recorded the hits "Umbrella", "SOS", and "Take a Bow", all of which ended up at the top of the Billboard charts after her singing debut in 2005.

Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born on February 20, 1988 in Saint Michael, Barbados to father Ronald and mother Monica who later divorced when Rihanna was just fourteen years old.

Rihanna's began singing when she was seven but her fame didn't take off until she was fifteen. Music became a career as a result of creating a musical trio with two of her classmates at the Charles F. Broome Memorial School and in 2003 they were introduced to record producer Evan Rogers. Rogers immediately saw the potential and began working with Rihanna to develop her recording career. Over the next year Rihanna and her mother commuted back and forth between Barbados and Connecticut, where Rogers and his wife lived. A year later, when Rihanna was sixteen, she made a permanent move to the US to live with Rogers and his wife.

During her first year in the US, Rihanna attended school and recorded her demos over summer and Christmas breaks. When they were finished, Rogers and Carl Sturken sent the vocals to various recording companies and they finally ended up at Def Jam. Jay-Z, the president of Def Jam at the time, quickly signed her.

Rihanna's debut album, "Music of the Sun", jumped to the top of the Billboard charts after its release in 2005. Although the music is considered pop and R&B, Rihanna's records were originally sold under the reggae genre due to her Caribbean descent. Her work was later sold under R&B, pop, hip-hop, and dance genres.

Rihanna's second album, "A Girl Like Me", was released in 2006, less than a year after her original album and contained the song "SOS" which launched Rihanna to the top of the billboard charts. Her third album, "Good Girl Gone Bad", came out in 2007 and yielded eight hits, including "Umbrella", "Shut Up and Drive," and "Don't Stop the Music."

As a result of her success, Rihanna was nominated for four Grammy Awards in 2007 and six in 2008 including Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Dance Recording. In 2009, Rihanna was scheduled to perform a the Grammys but cancelled. It was later revealed that she'd had a dispute with then-boyfriend, Chris Brown, who had allegedly assaulted her that morning
