Rihanna made her singing debut with Pon De Replay, immediately taking the world by storm. Everyone instantly fell in love with the Barbadian singer, including fellow artist, Chris Brown. Rihanna’s relationship with Chris took center stage until it came out that he had beaten and bruised her. But despite this blip in her past, RiRi’s talents continue to shine through.

The controversial singer is officially the second best-selling female singer ever and has bagged a number of awards including nine Grammys, created some of the best music videos, and acted in box office hits.

She’s the creative director of Fenty x Puma, the owner of Savage X Fenty lingerie, and has her very own Fenty Beauty line. In 2021, Rihanna was declared a billionaire, making her the wealthiest female musician in the world.

Her social media follows have more celebrities than real-life friends, music runs through her veins and she’d much rather be glued to her TV screen, piled under an array of snacks than go out on a Friday night.
