Robyn Rihanna Fenty , known by her stage name Rihanna, from the Welsh name Rhiannon, is a Barbadian recording artist, actress, and fashion designer. Rihanna was born on February 20, 1988.Born in Saint Michael, Barbados, her career began when she met record producer Evan Rogers through mutual friends in late 2003 and recorded demo tapes under Rogers’s guidance. Her demo tape was sent to several record labels, and she subsequently signed a contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for its president, rapper Jay-Z. Rihanna’s debut and second studio albums, Music of the Sun and A Girl Like Me, peaked in the top ten on the Billboard 200 chart. Both albums spawned the Billboard Hot 100 top two hit single “Pon de Replay” and her first Hot 100 number-one “SOS”.
Her third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad , and its chart-topping lead single “Umbrella” were major breakthroughs in her career that brought her to widespread prominence. The album and its Reloaded version produced the worldwide hit singles “Don’t Stop the Music”, “Take a Bow”, and “Disturbia”. The record was nominated for nine Grammy Awards, winning Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Umbrella”, and is Rihanna’s best-selling album in the US to date.
After an altercation with then-boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna released her fourth studio album, Rated R, in November 2009. It was followed by three more albums: Loud , Talk That Talk , and her first Billboard 200 number one album Unapologetic. That same year she appeared in her first theatrical feature film: Battleship. These albums feature the global hit singles “Rude Boy”, “What’s My Name?”, “S&M”, “Where Have You Been” and “Stay”, as well as some of the best-selling singles of all time, such as “Umbrella”, “Disturbia”, “Only Girl”, “We Found Love”, and “Diamonds”. In addition to her solo work, Rihanna has collaborated with numerous other artists, including being featured on the worldwide hits “Live Your Life” and “Love the Way You Lie”.

She has sold over 30 million albums and 120 million singles worldwide, which makes her one of the best-selling artists of all time. She has achieved twelve number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the youngest solo artist to achieve the feat. Billboard named her the Digital Songs Artist of the 2000s decade, ranking her seventeenth overall. In 2013, Billboard ranked Rihanna the top Hot 100 artist of the 2010s decade.

On February 8, 2009, Rihanna’s scheduled performance at the 51st Grammy Awards was cancelled. Reports later surfaced regarding an altercation with then-boyfriend, singer Chris Brown, who was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats. On March 5, 2009, Brown was charged with assault and making criminal threats.Due to a leaked photograph from the Los Angeles Police Department obtained by TMZ.com—which revealed that Rihanna had sustained visible injuries—an organization known as STOParazzi proposed “Rihanna’s Law,” which, if enacted, would “deter employees of law enforcement agencies from releasing photos or information that exploits crime victims.” Gil Kaufman of VH1 reported the “nonstop coverage of the Rihanna/Brown case has brought up a number of issues regarding the privacy of alleged victims of domestic violence, including the decision by almost all major news outlets to divulge the identity of the victim—which is not typically done in domestic-violence cases” and discussed the controversial distribution of the leaked photograph.
Rihanna was subpoenaed to testify during a preliminary hearing in Los Angeles on June 22, 2009. On June 22, 2009, Brown pled guilty to felony assault. Brown received five years probation and was ordered to stay fifty yards away from Rihanna, unless at public events, which then would be reduced to ten yards.
In February 2011, at the request of Brown’s lawyer and with Rihanna’s consent, Judge Patricia Schnegg modified with the restraining order to a “level one order,” which allows the singers to appear at awards shows together in the future.
From December 2009 to 2010, Rihanna dated Los Angeles Dodgers baseball star Matt Kemp.Canadian rapper Drake has also admitted to dating the singer.
