Rihanna Music Career
She was discovered in her home country of Barbados by American record producer Evan Rogers. In 2003, Rihanna formed a musical trio with two of her classmates. The group had gone for an audition organized by the Roger. Rihanna put up an outstanding performance at the auditioning,
Impressed by her performance, Rogers scheduled a second meeting with Rihanna’s mother present and then invited Rihanna to his hometown in the United States to record some demo tapes that could be sent to record labels.
Recordings were intermittent, taking about a year, because she was only able to record during school holidays. “Pon de Replay” and “The Last Time” were two tracks recorded for the demo tape, which were eventually included on her debut album Music of the Sun.
That same year, Rihanna was signed to Rogers’s and Carl Sturken’s production company, Syndicated Rhythm Productions.
Rihanna’s demo was shipped out to Def Jam Recordings and played for rapper Jay-Z, who had recently been appointed as president and CEO of Def Jam. When Jay-Z first heard the track “Pon de Replay”, he felt the song was too big for her.
Despite being skeptical, he invited Rihanna to audition for the label. In early 2005, Rihanna auditioned for Def Jam in New York City, where Jay-Z introduced her to music mogul Antonio “L.A.” Reid.
At the audition, she sang Whitney Houston’s cover of “For the Love of You”, as well as the demo tracks “Pon de Replay” and “The Last Time”.
Jay-Z was absolutely certain about signing her after she performed her future hit single “Pon de Replay”. His boss, L.A. Reid, was also impressed with her audition, telling Jay-Z not to let Rihanna leave the building until the contract was signed.
