Its successful lead single "Umbrella" became an international breakthrough in her career, as she won her first Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration with Jay Z in 2008.
After releasing four consecutive platinum studio albums, including the Grammy Award winner Unapologetic (2012), she was recognized as a pop icon.
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.
She recorded the demo over the next year intermittently, due to only being able to record during school holidays.
In early 2007, Rihanna appeared on the single "Roll It" with Jamaican band J-Status and fellow Barbadian singer-songwriter Shontelle.
The song appeared on J-Status' debut album The Beginning, released in several European countries only.
Around that time, Rihanna had already begun work on her third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad.
Rihanna's demo was shipped out to Def Jam Recordings, where Jay Brown, an A&R executive at the record label, was one of the first to hear the demo.
Brown played the demo tape for rapper Jay Z, who had recently been appointed as president and Chief executive officer (CEO) of Def Jam.
