Rihanna (Robyn Rihanna Fenty) is famous worldwide for her singing. However, few people know that she was discovered in Barbados. Evan Rogers was on vacation with his wife in the island of Barbados and that’s when he agreed to collaborate with her. Rihanna was singing since she was 7 years old, preponderantly reggae music. Since Evan Rogers was already producing pop hits for such superstars as NSYNC, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, and others, he was the perfect fit.
Rihanna grew up selling clothes on the street. Her father was a crack addict. She has two brothers, named Rorrey and Rajad. Although living in the West Indies wasn’t particularly glamorous, she still won various beauty and talent contests. From then to now, the Barbados Babe managed to sell 40 million albums and become a star.
Rihanna established her dance-pop credentials in summer 2005 with her debut smash hit, “Pon de Replay”. She continued with “S.O.S.” in 2006, “Umbrella” in 2007, and “Disturbia” in 2008. However, her third album was the one to make her really famous, named Good Girl Gone Bad. She won her first Grammy Award, for “Umbrella,” in 2008, followed by “Run This Town” in 2010, “Only Girl (In the World)”, “All of the Lights”, “We Found Love” and “The Monster.”
