As a teenager, Rihanna turned to singing as a release from her troubles at home.
She formed a girl group with two classmates; when they were 15 years old, they scored an audition with music producer Evan Rodgers, who was visiting the island with his Barbadian wife.
Rogers was awed by the precociously beautiful and phenomenally talented Rihanna, to the unfortunate detriment of her two friends.
“I remember staring into everybody’s eyes in the room while I was singing, and at that point, I was fearless,” she said.
“But the minute I stopped singing, I was like, ‘oh my God, Jay-Z is sitting right in front of me.'”Only eight months later, in August 2005, Rihanna released her first single, “Pon de Replay,” a reggae-influenced club track that skyrocketed to No.
2 on the Billboard singles chart and announced Rihanna as the next big up-and-coming pop star.
Her first album, Music of the Sun, released later that month, reached No.
10 on the Billboard albums chart and also featured the single “If It’s Lovin’ That You Want.” The Barbados beauty tours with Gwen Stefani to promote her album, which sells more than 2 million copies worldwide.
calls the album “a seductive mix of big-voiced R&B and souped-up island riddims – what Beyoncé might have sounded like if she had grown up in the West Indies and skipped the whole Destiny’s Child thing.” Eight months after the release of her debut album, Rihanna releases her sophomore album, A Girl Like Me.
The album boasts Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers “S. S.” and “Unfaithful,” and earns her four Billboard Music Awards, including Female Artist of the Year.
But the success is paired with gossip that Rihanna is romantically involved with her mentor Jay-Z, who is dating pop star Beyoncé.
