It’s been 12 (!) years since a talented, beautiful singer burst onto the scene with “Pon de Replay” – and from the first few bars, you could almost see her star being born.

 

All anyone really knew was the song was done by a young, Barbadian artist that Jay Z had taken under his wing and signed to Def Jam two years earlier, where he was president at the time.

 

Also, we knew her name: Rihanna.

Since then, she’s become, Rihanna.

 

She’s won multiple Grammys, VMAs, and other awards.

 

Her side eye is almost as famous as she is.

She’s no longer just a singer.

 

She has a makeup line called “Fenty Beauty,” and a shoe collection with Puma called “Fenty x Puma.”
