Robyn Rihanna Fenty born on February 20, 1988, better known as simply Rihanna , is a Barbadian Pop/R&B recording artist, songwriter and model. Born in Saint Michael, Barbados, Rihanna moved to the United States at the age of 16 to pursue a recording career under the guidance of record producer Evan Rogers. She subsequently signed a contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for then-label head Jay-Z. In 2005, Rihanna released her debut studio album, Music of the Sun, which peaked in the top ten of the Billboard 200 chart and features the Billboard Hot 100 hit single “Pon de Replay”. Less than a year later, she released her second studio album, A Girl Like Me (2006), which peaked within the top five of the Billboard albums chart, and produced her first US number one hit single, “SOS”, as well as Billboard Hot 100 top ten entries “Unfaithful” and “Break It Off”. Rihanna’s third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007), peaking at number two on the Billboard 200, featured five top ten hits including three US number one hit singles—”Umbrella”, “Take a Bow” and “Disturbia”—and the worldwide hit “Don’t Stop the Music”. The album was nominated for nine Grammy Awards, winning Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Umbrella,” which features Jay-Z. Her fourth studio album, Rated R, was released in November 2009, and peaked at number four on the Billboard 200. Its first three singles, “Russian Roulette”, “Hard” and “Rude Boy” peaked within the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100, with “Rude Boy” peaking at number one.
On February 8, 2009, Rihanna’s scheduled performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards was cancelled. Reports later surfaced regarding an alleged 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 Rihanna had sustained visible injuries—an organization known as STOParazzi has proposed a law called “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 the controversial distribution of the leaked photograph. Rihanna was subpoenaed to testify during a preliminary hearing in L.A. on June 22, 2009. “The DA told me Rihanna will be subpoenaed. I will accept on her behalf,” Rihanna’s attorney, Donald Etra told Us Weekly. “She will appear in court, and if asked to testify, she will do so”. On June 22, 2009, Brown pled guilty to the felony assault. In exchange for his plea Brown received five years probation and was ordered to stay fifty yards away from Rihanna, unless at public events, which then will be reduced to ten yards.
Rihanna made an appearance as the central character in Kanye West’s music video “Paranoid”. She also collaborated with Jay-Z and West on “Run This Town” which peaked at number two on Billboard Hot 100 as well as reaching the top ten in ten other countries. The song won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, bringing her total to three Grammys. Rihanna performed “Run This Town” along with Jay-Z and West for the “Answer the Call” concert at Madison Square Garden in September 2009, making it her first musical performance since the altercation with Brown. The trio also performed the song on the premiere of The Jay Leno Show on September 14, 2009. Her fourth studio album, Rated R, was released in November 2009. Rolling Stone was favorable of the album commenting that “Rihanna has transformed her sound and made one of the best pop records of the year”. The album debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 and has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipment of one million copies. Its first three singles: “Russian Roulette”, “Hard” and “Rude Boy” peaked within the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Rude Boy” reaching number-one. The song became her sixth number-one in the United States and also topped the charts in Australia, as well as reaching number two in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, New Zealand and Switzerland. On April 5, 2010, Rihanna announced dates for the Last Girl on Earth Tour, which began on April 16, 2010. In January 2010, Rihanna won two Barbados Music Awards for “Song of the Decade” with “Umbrella” and “Entertainer of the Decade”. She was named “International Female Artist of the Year” at the 2010 NRJ Music Awards.
Rihanna released two other singles from Rated R. “Rockstar 101” became a hit on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs, peaking at number two. The fifth and last single from the album, “Te Amo”, peaked at number fourteen in the United Kingdom, as well as appearing in the top twenty on eleven other charts. At the 2010 BET Awards, Rihanna and Jeezy won the “Viewer’s Choice Award” for her song “Hard”. In the summer of 2010, Rihanna collaborated with rapper Eminem on the song “Love the Way You Lie” from his seventh studio album, Recovery. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number two and in its fourth week, it reached number one giving Rihanna her seventh number-one on the Hot 100 of her career, making her the female artist with the fifth-most number-ones in the chart’s history. The song also reached number-one in Australia, Canada, Ireland and New Zealand as well as on the UK R&B Chart and the US Digital Songs chart.
In April 2010, David Guetta leaked a small snippet of an unreleased song by himself and Rihanna. It was later found that Rihanna is recording for her fifth studio album which is set to be released at the end of 2010 soon after her Last Girl on Earth Tour finishes. Besides Guetta, Taio Cruz, Alex da Kid, Sean Garrett and Ne-Yo have claimed to be working on the new album. Also in Rihanna’s path is her self-titled book set to be released in September and her movie debut in Peter Berg’s film, Battleship, scheduled for release in 2012.
