R&B singer, actress, fashion designer, and businesswoman Robyn Rihanna Fenty NH born February 20, 1988, is a Barbadian.
Rihanna was discovered by American record producer Evan Rogers, who invited her to the United States to record demo tapes. She was raised in Bridgetown, Barbados, and was born in Saint Michael.
Her first two studio albums, Music of the Sun 2005 and A Girl Like Me, were both influenced by Caribbean music and peaked within the top ten of the US Billboard 200 chart after she signed with Def Jam in 2005.
She established herself as a sex symbol in the music industry with her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad 2007. Rihanna’s Grammy Award-winning song “Umbrella” catapulted her to worldwide fame and made her a household name.
Rated R 2009, Loud 2010, Talk That Talk 2011, and Unapologetic 2012, her first number one on the Billboard 200, were all examples of her fusion of pop, dance, and R&B genres.
“Rude Boy,” “Only Girl In the World,” “What’s My Name?”, “S&M,” “We Found Love,” “Where Have You Been,” and “Diamonds” are just a few of the hits from the albums.
Following her split from Def Jam, her eighth album, Anti 2016, showed a more independent side to her work.
In addition to “Work,” it was her second number one album in the United States. Many artists, including Drake, Britney Spears, Eminem, Jay Z, Kanye West, Adam Levine, Paul McCartney, Ne-Yo, and Shakira, have worked with Rihanna during her career.

On February 20, 1988, Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born in Saint Michael, Barbados. The daughter of a Barbadian accountant, Monica née Braithwaite, and a warehouse supervisor, Ronald Fenty of African, Irish, English, and Scottish ancestry, she is known as Monica Fenty.
Rorrey and Rajad Fenty are Rihanna’s biological brothers, and she also has three half-sisters and a half-brother from her father’s previous relationships.
Rihanna was raised in a three-bedroom bungalow in Bridgetown, where she worked with her father selling clothes on the street.
Her father’s alcoholism and crack cocaine addiction contributed to her parents’ strained marriage, which affected her childhood. He physically abused her mom and Rihanna tried to break up fights by getting in between them.
“The doctors even thought it was a tumor because it was that intense,” Rihanna recalls of her CT scans as a child. By the age of 14, her parents had divorced, and her health began to improve.
She grew up listening to reggae music, which she credits with helping her recover. As a youngster, Rihanna participated in a sub-military program with future Barbadian singer-songwriter Shontelle, who served as her drill sergeant.
She later went on to attend Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School and Combermere School, where she met future international cricketers Chris Jordan and Carlos Brathwaite.
Although she had originally planned to finish high school, she ultimately decided to pursue a career in music.
