By Ardain Isma Jr.Special to CSMS MagazineRihanna is defiantly one of the most talented young stars out there in the music business today. Rihanna is a true triple threat. She can sing, write music, and she can dance. Not bad for a 17-year-old. She already has three top ten American music singles and she is not even an American. Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born on February20, 1988 in the Caribbean island of Barbados in the parish St. Michael. She was the first of three children to Ronald Fenty and Monica Fenty. While she was growing up in St. Michael, she attended Combermere School, where she won Miss Combermere of 2004. Her talent was singing. While she was young, she always had dreamed of becoming a singer and being famous for her talent. Rihanna would write songs frequently to improve her singing and songwriting skills. As she got older, her singing became better and better. She has gotten so good that almost every talent show she entered, she won. One day Rihanna was at the beach, and Evan Rogers, a music producer tied with Island Def Jam Music, found her singing. Mr. Rogers was so impressed with her singing that he helped Rihanna record a demo, which was sent to The Island Def Jam Music Group president Sean “Jay-Z” Carter. Mr. Carter was so impressed with the demo tape that he asked Rihanna to come to New York and audition for him in person, which she did. She was signed on the spot. Rihanna was so happy that her dreams had finally come true. Rihanna’s first album, Music Of The Sun that she co-wrote, was released in August of 2005. The album is led by the singlePon De Replay, which debuted #2 on both the billboard chart and the U.K singles chart. The next single from the album If It’s Lovin’ That You want did okay, but not as good as the first. However, it still entered the top twenty in other countries. The album would be certified platinum in other countries and gold in the United States. Rihanna was happy with the success, but she didn’t stop tere. In just less than eight months, Rihanna released her second album A girl Like Me, which debuted # 5 on the billboard charts and # 6 on the U.K album charts. The lead single S.O.Sbecame Rihanna first #1 song on the Billboard charts. The song was also used in her endorsement deal with Nike. The second single from the album was Unfaithful, which is a song about a girl who hates cheating on her boyfriend. Friend and label-mate NE-YO wrote the song with Rihanna in mind. The song became a top ten hit in the U.S. Her next single will be We Ride. Rihanna will also star in the movie Bring it back 2, which is due to come out this fall. Rihanna is proving herself to be a force to be reckoned with in this industry, and at the rate this is going, she surely sets to leave her marks in this lucrative business.Ardain Isma Jr. is a sophomore at South Plantation High, Plantation, Florida.
