Transcript of Rihanna - Music Star Research

Robyn Rihanna Fenty born February
20, 1988, known as Rihanna, is a Barbadian recording artist and actress.

Born in Saint Michael, Barbados, Rihanna moved to the United States at age 16 to pursue a recording career under the guidance of record producer Evan Rogers. She subsequently signed a contract with Def Jam Recordings. she met Rogers through mutual friends in Barbados in December 2003. Rogers soon asked Rihanna to come to his hotel room, where she performed renditions of the songs "Emotion" and "Hero". This impressed Rogers, who then took her on various trips to New York, where she was accompanied by her mother, Monica, to record some demo tapes which could be sent to record labels In February 2005, the president and CEO of Def Jam Recordings Jay-Z requested to meet Rihanna and she auditioned for him and industry executive L.A. Reid, performing Whitney Houston's version of "For the Love of You" as well as the original songs "Pon de Replay" and "The Last Time". On the same day of the audition, Rihanna signed a six-album record deal with Def Jam Recordings, later relocating from Barbados to New York to live with Rogers and his wife. Def Jam Recordings is an American record label, focused primarily on hip hop and urban music, owned by Universal Music Group, and operates as a part of The Island Def Jam Music Group. ISLAND DEF JAM ARTISTS REGGAE/HIP HOP TO DANCE/ROCK Rihanna has released six studio albums, three compilation albums, forty official singles, three charity singles, one promotional single and eight other appearances. She made her chart debut in June 2005 with "Pon de Replay", which reached the top-five position in over ten countries worldwide. It was followed by the release of her debut studio album, Music of the Sun, which peaked in the top-ten on the Canadian Albums Chart and the US Billboard 200. Rihanna's second studio album A Girl like Me was released on April 19, 2006. In May 2007, Rihanna released her third studio album Good Girl Gone Bad. The album peaked at number two on the Billboard 200, eventually being certified two-times platinum in the United States and quintuple platinum in the United Kingdom. The album's lead single "Umbrella" which featured American rapper Jay-Z became massive commercial success, peaking at number-one in more than ten countries, including topping the Billboard Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks Rihanna's fourth studio effort, Rated R, was released in November 2009. Five singles were released from the album, including the commercial success "Rude Boy", which topped the Australian Singles Chart and the Billboard Hot 100 for five straight weeks. In November 2010, Rihanna released her fifth studio album Loud. The album earned Rihanna platinum certification in the United States and sextuple platinum in the United Kingdom. It spawned seven singles including the commercially successful hits, "Only Girl (In the World)", "S&M" and "What's My Name?" which featured Canadian rapper Drake. On November 18, 2011, Rihanna released her sixth studio album Talk That Talk. The album's lead single "We Found Love" featured British DJ Calvin Harris who also produced the song. It became a major worldwide success, topping the charts in more than twenty countries including the Billboard Hot 100, where it stayed at number-one for ten weeks, becoming her longest-running number-one of her career in the country. This was her 4th album and the first time this 'R' symbol was used. The record company may have felt that she was now renowned enough for just one letter to be used this also shows how much of a successful artist she is. The styling for the front front cover links in with the fact that on this album her genre of music took a turn it moved away from up-tempo and ballad songs and instead incorporated pop and dance musical styles. 'R' features a foreboding a angry tone, the use of black leather, the hair cut, heavy eyeliner and the multiple ringed jewelry - links with the rebellious rock genre and symbolises angst. Much of the lyrics on this album feature these elements The title of the album is in a plain font
in my opinion this draws more focus to the image of Rihanna and her 'R'. This chosen font style still links with the concept of the album. 'Rated R' links in with the concept of the album, it's ALL about Rihanna, and also she is showing that she has grown up. The chosen colour palette could connote the fact that we are now being
invited to see Rihanna's dark side The styling on the back cover continues with the more adult theme, portrayed through the fact that Rihanna is wearing suspenders and stockings and cut out undergarments. This also gives her a sexual nature, male fans want her and female fans want to be her. the white fur coupled with the other items connotes a sense of luxury with rebellion. SPINE Record label name

Secondly her image seems to change to match the genre/ style of music that is on the album that she currently has on release. She has gone from a hip hop jeans and trainers style to an elegant look, to rock and grunge. I think that the evolution of her style and image can be compared to that of Madonna's The home page for Rihanna's site features scrolling imagery. We are able to see the many change 'faces' of Rihanna, along with that is the most recent news e.g. films, awards, TV performances, collaborations. Her 'R' logo is always seen, as well as being able to click on the pictures to navigate the site there is also a navigation bar at the top. The navigation bar always remains on top and
there is also a slightly different navigation at the bottom. The various pages cover things like news and what Rihanna is doing now or recently. You can see where she is touring and what publications she has graced the cover of. It also features her biography and discography. There is even a forum so that 'real' fans can talk to each other. Social networking is a feature you can follow Rihanna on Twitter and Facebook. The overall look of the site is 'clean and crisp' the background doesn't take away from the content of the site
