Singer Born on the island of Barbados, Robin Rihanna Fenty traveled to the U.S. at age 16 with dreams of stardom. In 2004 the singer auditioned in the office of then Def Jam President Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, and he was so impressed that he wouldn’t let her leave until she’d signed a contract. Since then Rihanna's career has been a straight climb to the top. Her first reggae-flavored hit, “Pon De Replay,” paved the way for a string of #1 singles—from “S.O.S.” to “Umbrella” featuring Jay-Z to “What’s My Name” featuring Drake in 2011. Rihanna has sold more  than 150 million albums worldwide. She has also modeled for Gucci and launched her own fragrances, Reb’l Fleur, Rebelle and Nude. The winner of seven Grammy Awards, Rihanna is an honorary cultural ambassador of Barbados. The platinum-selling singer released her seventh album, Unapologetic, in November 2012 and made her acting debut in 2012’s Battleship.
