Robyn Rihanna Fenty better known as Rihanna was birthed to a Barbadian father and a Guyanese mother in Barbados on Feb. 20, 1988.

The St. Michael parish native caught the attention of Evan Rogers, an American record producer who was vacationing in Barbados.

Certain Rihanna had the goods to become a certified star; he helped her record a demo and then moved her to his residence in the US. Now in the US, Rogers arranged an audition with Jay-Z, who headed the Def Jam record label.

When Jay-Z also saw what Evan Rogers had seen earlier, he signed her. With Pon de Replay (2005), Rihanna immediately captured an international audience.

Rihanna acted in the movies Battleship (2012) and This Is the End (2013). She also voiced one of the main characters in the animated adventure Home (2015). Rihanna later appeared as a hacker in Ocean’s 8 (2018). In 2019 she starred with Donald Glover in the musical Guava Island; it premiered at the Coachella Valley Festival before streaming on Amazon.

Fenty Beauty Journey

After collaborating on several cosmetics collections in the early 2010s, Rihanna launched her own line, Fenty Beauty on Sept. 8, 2017.

The cosmetics brand is popular for its broad inclusivity across various skin tones as its Pro Filt’R foundation became high-demand upon first release. On offer is 40 different shades of foundation.

Around $1.4 billion of her net worth comes from her beauty line, Fenty Beauty, per Forbes. Rihanna owns 50 percent of the company with the other half owned by French luxury fashion conglomerate LVMH. Fenty Beauty generated $550 million in revenue in 2020 according to some estimates.

Relationship With ASAP Rocky

In 2021 it was confirmed that Rihanna was in a relationship with rapper A$ap Rocky born Rakim Mayers. The couple welcomed a baby boy in 2022.

Super Bowl Performance and Second Child Pregnancy Announcement

Rihanna delivered an electrifying and hit-heavy half-time show at Arizona’s State Farm Stadium where the Kansas City Chiefs fought back to beat the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl classic.

The 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show saw the 34-year-old, wearing an all-red custom jumpsuit by Loewe, performing on a floating platform which soared high above the crowd, as a swarm of energetic dancers, all dressed in white, gathered below.

The Super Bowl LVII audience went wild as the singer launched straight into Better Have My Money. She then rattled through several recognisable hits, including Only Girl (In The World) and the Where Have You Been.

There was We Found Love, Rude Boy and Pour It Up. Other hits packed into the tight 14-minute set included Run This Town, All of the Lights, Wild Thoughts and Diamonds.

While social media chatter was divided between those who held that her apparent baby bump was a second pregnancy, others reckoned she had just retained a curvier figure because of her previous pregnancy.

All such talk was shushed when her representative revealed she was indeed carrying her second baby. Making it a mere nine months after she and her partner A$AP Rocky welcomed their son.

Although delighted for her, some fans fear Rihanna’s much-anticipated ninth studio album will not be served soon.  

It had been five years since Rihanna’s last live performance so she went through meticulous preparation to be ready.

She hasn’t released an album since 2016’s ANTI and her last performance was at the 2018 Grammy Awards.

Last year, Rihanna contributed a pair of songs to the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack: “Born Again” and “Lift Me Up.” The latter was nominated for Best Original Song at the 2023 Oscars.
