Rihanna Biography | Age | Career | Education | Net Worth
Rihanna (born Robyn Rihanna Fenty; 20.2.1988) is the first female from Barbados to have received a Grammy8 Award and is currently signed to the Def Jam Recordings record label. She was presented with an area of land in Appes Hill, St. James, Barbados, in a tribute to her work.
Singer Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born on February 20, 1988, in St. Michael Parish on the Caribbean island of Barbados. She is the eldest of three children born to Monica Fenty, an accountant, and Ronald Fenty, a warehouse supervisor. Rihanna’s childhood was marred by her father’s struggles with addictions to alcohol and crack cocaine and her parents’ marital problems — they divorced when she was 14 years old.
Rihanna also struggled with crippling headaches for several years during her childhood, a condition she attempted to hide from her friends and classmates so that they would not think she was abnormal. “I never expressed how I felt,” she remembered. “I always kept it in. I would go to school … you would never know there was something wrong with me.”
Career and Musical Achievements:
In 2005, Rihanna released her first studio album Music of the Sun which reached the top ten of the U.S. Billboard 200. She had her first hit in her debut single “Pon de Replay”. Within less than a year, Rihanna came up with her second album, A Girl Like Me. “SOS” from this album became quite a rage and it was her first number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 2007, she recorded her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad. Three singles from the album reached the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, namely Umbrella, Take a Bow and Disturbia. The album allowed her to get nine nominations at the Grammy Awards. Rihanna won in the category of “Best Collaboration” for Umbrella – a rap duet with Jay-Z.
After drawing much controversy over a violent domestic dispute with then-boyfriend Chris Brown, she released her fourth studio album, Rated R, in November 2009. According to her recording house Def Jam Recordings, Rihanna has sold over 12 million records alone from January 2005 to May 2009.
In 2010, she released a new album Loud, which featured “Only Girl (In the World)”, “What’s My Name?”, “Fading” and “S & M”. Talk That Talk, Rihanna’s sixth album, was released on November 21, 2011. The album was noted to be a summary of her last two albums, Rated R (2009) and Loud (2010), showing off her versatility between multiple genres such as electro, pop and R&B. She was widely appreciated for her collaboration with Calvin Harris “We Found Love”, and with Jay-Z on the title track “Talk That Talk”. Rihanna’s first Billboard 200 number one album, Unapologetic, was released in November 2012 with hit songs such as “Diamonds”, “Stay” and “Pour It Up”.
Rihanna is known for her financial problems, even though her total net-worth is an estimated $90 million. Her relationship with singer Chris Brown has received wide coverage in the press. In June 2009, Brown pled guilty to felony assault, for which he received five years probation. She has also dated Canadian rapper Drake and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp.
