Since bursting on the scene with her 2005 debut album, Music of The Sun, on Def Jam Recordings, Robyn Fenty, better known by her middle name Rihanna, has racked up worldwide sales of 200 million, establishing her as one of the best-selling artists of all time. The Barbados-born beauty and fashion icon is the youngest artist to earn 14 chart-topping Billboard Hot 100 singles, as well as the solo artist to reach that total the quickest, and was named the best-selling digital songs artist of the 2000s, as well as the leading Billboard Hot 100 artist since 2010. A true force of nature and pop culture icon, Rihanna has won a total of eight Grammy Awards, eight American Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, two BRIT Awards, and the inaugural Icon Award at the 2013 American Music Awards.
