Rihanna was born February 20, 1988, on the Caribbean island of Barbados, as Robyn Rihanna Fenty. She went to Charles F. Broome Memorial School, a primary school in Barbados, and then on to the Combermere Secondary School, where she formed a musical trio with two of her classmates.

In 2004, she won the Miss Combermere Beauty Pageant and performed in the Colours of Combermere School Show, singing Mariah Carey's 'Hero'. At the age of 15, Rihanna received her big break when one of her friends introduced her to music producer Evan Rogers, who was vacationing in Barbados with his Barbadian wife, Jackie. Rogers, along with his partner Carl Sturken, helped Rihanna record material in the U.S that was sent to various recording companies. One copy of Rihanna's work was sent to Jay-Z, who eventually signed her to his record label.

Rihanna's debut album Music Of The Sun, which she co-wrote, was released in August 2005, led by the single 'Pon De Replay', which peaked at number two on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart.

The second single, 'If It's Lovin' That You Want', was less successful than its predecessor. The album itself peaked within the top ten in Canada, and the US, and within the top forty in the UK. It has received platinum certifications in several countries and a Gold certification in the US. To further promote the album, Rihanna toured with Gwen Stefani. The album itself sold almost half a million copies in the US and two million worldwide.

In 2006, Rihanna participated in several endorsement deals, including for Nike and J.C. Penney. She released her second album, A Girl Like Me, in April 2006 less than eight months after the release of her first album. The album debuted at number five in the US and six in the UK.

The lead single, 'SOS', was used in her endorsement deal with Nike. The song became Rihanna's first number one on the Hot 100 chart; it also debuted at number one on the Hot Digital Songs chart where it became the second biggest first week digital single ever. 'SOS' peaked at number one in Australia and number two in the UK. The second single, a slow ballad which addresses the feelings of guilt a girl faces as she cheats on her boyfriend, titled 'Unfaithful', became her third top ten hit in the US and UK. The third single 'We Ride' was not as successful as her previous releases. Rihanna's fourth single from the album, 'Break It Off', featured Sean Paul.

That same year, Rihanna made her acting debut in a cameo role in Bring It On: All Or Nothing, which was released on August 8, 2006. She also appeared on an episode of American soap opera All My Children and drama Las Vegas.

After her second album, she released her third album titled 'Good Girl Gone Bad'. The first single off that album 'Umbrella' became an extremly popular hit in the US and UK. The single topped number one in the US and UK. The song stayed number one in the UK for more then 10 weeks becoming the first single in over a decade to do so.

Rihanna recently won four honors at the Billboard Music Awards including female Artist of the year beating Beyonce and Mary J Blige to the top honor.
Rihanna is also the new face of Cover Girl and LG mobile which she will help launch the new colors of the LG Chocolate phones.
