Robyn Rihanna Fenty, known to the world simply as Rihanna, is a singer, actress and businesswoman. Ever since she started her music career, Rihanna became a pop icon and received numerous awards and accolades for her work.

The singer’s childhood was affected by her father’s alcohol and drug addiction and by her parents’ divorce. She struggled with extreme headaches for several years and singing served her as an escape from all the tension.

At the age of 16 Rihanna got the opportunity to pursue a career in music so she moved to the US and never looked back. She signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings and soon released her debut album, Music of the Sun, which proved to be a great success, reaching no. 10 on the Billboard albums chart.

In 2017, Rihanna launched her own cosmetics brand, Fenty Beauty, which quickly became popular due to its broad inclusivity across skin types and tones. The brand was even named one of Time magazine’s best inventions of 2017.

A very successful artist with an amazing voice and catchy songs, Rihanna is one of the best-selling artists of all time.
