The Sexy Barbados born singer- Robyn Rihanna Fenty still makes big waves even in 2014. Riri as some would call her was not always called Rihanna until she became a big star. She was born on February 20, 1988 in St. Michael, Barbados. Her voice is a “Mezzo-Soprano” that covers three octaves which is not surprising why she has has released seven studio albums, two compilation albums, two remix albums and fifty-three singles (including thirteen as a featured artist). She released her first her album titled Music of the sun which had 13 tracks and was followed by her second one in 2006 titled A girl like me, with three tracks , Unfaithful http://www.metrolyrics.com/unfaithful-lyrics-rihanna.html , If it’s lovin’ that you want and P.S I’m still not over you that were and are still making clubs move. Unfaithful was originally titled “Murderer” and is about a woman who regrets cheating on her partner. “Unfaithful” is a pop and R&B ballad and was inspired by the works of American rock band Evanescence http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evanescence.
The small island girl rose to international prominence when she released her album titled Good girl gone Bad in 2007, with its chart topping single being Umbrella.She won her first Grammy for her song Umbrella a collaboration with Jay-Z peaking at number one in fifteen countries. http://uptheduffy.tumblr.com/post/10442461481/its-pouring-rain. Her second Grammy was for Run This Town with Jay-Z and Kanye West. When she released Good girl gone Bad, people were concerned that she will change from being the sweet girl from Barbados, such concerns were fulfilled when she released the track Disturbia which had rather disturbing visuals in its video: http://youtu.be/E1mU6h4Xdxc. Rihanna then dated Chris Brown, her tumultuous relationship with Chris Brown resulted in him assaulting her in February 2009. She was scheduled to perform at the 51st Grammy Awards but it was cancelled. She didn’t speak about the incident until nine months later, when she broke her silence on ABC to Diane Sawyer. http://www.spin.com/articles/chris-brown-and-rihanna-whole-story/. Her latest album cover may be influenced by the Chris Brown incident. She really surprised her fans with the artwork of the cover of this album, Unapologetic, she’s topless and showing off her new Isis tattoo. The album is a heat and has the following tracks:
- Fresh out the Runway
- Pour It Up
- Loveeeeeee Song
- Right Now
- What Now
- Nobodies Business
- Love Without Tragedy / Mother Mary
- Get It Over With
- No Love Allowed
- Lost In Paradise
- Half Of Me
My most favourite track from her latest singles is “We On”. It is one of those tracks where I feel she outdid herself. We On: http://youtu.be/FczrUmj07Fk
