She was discovered in her home country of Barbados by American record producer Evan Rogers.

While Hiddleswift may have dominated headlines with their recent summer romance, we have our eye on another famous pairing: Drake and Rihanna.

After releasing two hit duets earlier this year, Drizzy and Ri Ri have been spotted out on the town in Europe, and, of course, dancing together onstage during several of major awards shows.

Rihanna is the youngest solo artist to earn fourteen number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and has a total of thirty one top-ten singles.

She was named the Digital Songs Artist of the 2000s decade, the top Hot 100 artist of the 2010s decade, as well as the all-time top Pop Songs artist by Billboard.

She grew up in a three-bedroom bungalow in Bridgetown and sold clothes with her father in a stall on the street.

Rihanna's childhood was deeply affected by her father's addiction to crack cocaine and alcohol, which contributed to her parents' strained marriage.

Its lead single "Umbrella" became an international breakthrough in her career, as she won her first Grammy Award at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards in 2008.

She then annually released four consecutive RIAA multi-platinum certified studio albums, including the Grammy Award winner Unapologetic (2012).

In 2005, Rihanna rose to fame with the release of her debut studio album Music of the Sun and its follow-up A Girl like Me (2006), which charted on the top 10 of the US Billboard 200 and respectively produced the successful singles "Pon de Replay", "SOS" and "Unfaithful".

She assumed creative control for her third studio album Good Girl Gone Bad (2007) and adopted a public image as a sex symbol, while reinventing her music.

(Rihanna has always insisted they’re just friends, while Drake has spoken about a brief fling in the past that ended in heartbreak.) For those who are not well versed in the “it’s complicated” love story between Riri and Drake, here, a comprehensive timeline.
