Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a singer, actress, businesswoman, and songwriter. She’s widely regarded as one of the most prominent singers of the 21st century. After signing with Def Jam in 2005, Rihanna soon gained recognition with the release of her first two studio albums, “Music of the Sun” and “A Girl Like Me,” both of which were influenced by Caribbean music and peaked within the top ten on the US Billboard 200 chart.

Her third album, “Good Girl Gone Bad,” incorporated elements of dance-pop and established her status as a significant icon in the music industry. The chart-topping single “Umbrella” earned Rihanna her first Grammy Award and catapulted her to global stardom. She continued to mix dance, pop, and R&B genres on her subsequent studio albums, “Rated R,” “Loud,” “Talk That Talk,” and “Unapologetic,” the last of which became her first Billboard 200 number one. The albums spawned a string of chart-topping singles, including “Rude Boy,” “Only Girl (In the World),” “What’s My Name?’,” “S&M,” “We Found Love,” and “Diamonds.”

Her eighth album, “Anti,” showcased a new creative control following her departure from Def Jam. It became her second US number-one and featured the chart-topping single “Work.” During her musical career, she’s collaborated with many artists, like Eminem, Drake, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, and Shakira. With sales of over 250 million records worldwide, Rihanna is the second-best-selling female music artist of all time and the highest-certified female artist of all time on the RIAA’s Top Artists (Digital Singles) ranking. She’s achieved 14 number-one singles, 32 top-ten singles in the US and 31 top-ten entries in the UK.

Her accolades include nine Grammy Awards, 13 American Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, five World Music Awards, six Guinness World Records, the NAACP’s President Award, and an Academy Award nomination. Her acclaimed Super Bowl halftime show performance in 2023 is the most watched in history. TIME Magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2012 and 2018, and Forbes ranked her among the top 10 highest-paid celebrities in 2012 and 2014.

As of 2023, she’s the wealthiest female musician, with an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion. Aside from music, Rihanna is known for her involvement in humanitarian causes, entrepreneurial ventures, and the fashion industry. She’s the founder of the nonprofit organization Clara Lionel Foundation, the cosmetics brand Fenty Beauty, and the fashion house Fenty under LVMH. She’s also ventured into acting, appearing in major roles in “Home,” “Battleship,” and “Ocean’s 8.” She was appointed as an ambassador of tourism, education, and investment by the Government of Barbados in 2018 and was declared a National Hero of Barbados in 2021.

What religion is Rihanna?

Rihanna identifies as a Christian. While appearing on the cover of British GLAMOUR in 2014, she said focusing on God was the key to staying true to herself. The singer said, “Remembering what’s important in life and understanding that we are individuals with our own relationship to God. When that’s clear, it’s difficult to be bothered by what people think.”
