Signed to Def Jam by Jay-Z in 2005, Rihanna was a first for Def Jam- a pop princess in the tradition of Mariah Carey, Madonna & Janet Jackson and Jay-Z’s own wife Beyonce. But many are called to that kind of work and few are chose and Rihanna is certainly among the chosen.  She was just 17 when “Pon de Replay” a Caribbean-flavored dance record that reflected her Barbadian heritage was released from her debut album “Music of the Sun”. Her career ever since has been a nonstop parade of hit singles, hot videos, platinum albums, international tours, fashion triumphs, product endorsements, and one award after another.
