Burning holes in the dance floor with "Pon De Replay", Rihanna was catapulted to the world’s attention in 2005. Following soon after were the back-to-back hits “SOS (Rescue Me)" and “Unfaithful”, lifted from her 2006 number 1, platinum sophomore album, “A Girl Like Me”.
Taken under the considerable wing of R&B master Jay-Z, his protégé has become without doubt one of the hottest females in popular music today.
Rihanna’s third album “Good Girl Gone Bad” released last year – and re-released and “Reloaded” one year on - the multi-platinum, worldwide smash includes mega-hits “Umbrella” featuring Jay-Z, “Shut Up and Drive”, “Hate That I Love You” featuring Ne-Yo, “Take A Bow”, “Don’t Stop The Music”, and the latest “Disturbia”, currently holding No: 1 on the Singles chart.
