Rihanna - The Only Girl in the World

by Sarah Oliver

Rihanna - The Only Girl in the World Synopsis

Multi-award winning artist and indisputable queen of R&B, Rihanna is one of the most recognisable and successful singers in the world. With hits such as 'Umbrella', 'Take a Bow' and 'Don't Stop the Music', the beautiful Barbadian has gone from a talented young singer from a broken home, to a bestselling and Grammy award-winning superstar. Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born in Saint Michael, Barbados, in 1988. Moving to the United States at the tender age of 16, Rihanna became the youngest ever musician to sign for Def Jam records, after sending her demo to the then company head, Jay-Z. Her debut single 'Pon de Replay' went to Number 2 in both the UK and US single charts, with her subsequent album Music of the Sun becoming a global bestseller. Following the success of her debut, Rihanna went straight back into the studio to record her follow-up album with renowned R&B producer and singer, Ne-Yo. A Girl Like Me went platinum in both the UK and US and the lead singer 'SOS' became her biggest selling of her career. A live tour followed and her next three platinum-selling albums, Good Girl Gone Bad, Rated R and Loud, confirmed Rihanna as one of th emost exciting and successful artists on the planet.
