When she released Umbrella - GGGB. Prior to that she was at the level of Ciara and company.

She became a megastar with GGGB, an icon with Loud, and a modern legend with Talk That Talk onwards.

Birth actually sounds like a good album title.

 

Anyway yeah GGGB made her a superstar and is when alot of people realized Rihanna was a serious threat.

Rated R

 

She grew so much during that era. Her stage presence and singing skills were built. Personally she grew too.

GGGB era just gave the proof Def Jam needed to let her breakout (and her personal troubles too)

Robyn.

Honestly I’d say TTT/Unapologetic, it wasn’t her commercial peak but that’s when she truly etablished herself.

During GGGB she got the global #1 hit, a theme,... and earned the trust of the label to invest more in her.

 

She saw how Katy ended the pop rock girls not named P!nk and the international top 10 girls. How fast Katy accelerated to #1 in 19 countries, instantly claimed the kissing girls theme that is still recycled by pop girls in 2018,... Gaga's many months take off run to top 10, second single went big and she popularized dance pop.

 

During Rated R it was clear that Rih had to up her game, train her skills, grow,... to be able to go up there with the new pop girls.

 

During Loud she showed that she can up there with Katy, Adele changed the sound of the radios,... while many others have disappeared from pop music.

 

Whether a pop girl can survive the rise of a new generation or not is the test that decides whether she has access to building up longevity or not.

 

I would say Loud.

When she clocked that number with SOS when all the girls thought she would be a one hit wonder. They've been pressed ever since!

Honestly I think the second Umbrella smashed we knew she was here to stay. She has always had the most unique voices in the industry, so many try and replicate her sound.

 

The huge star power and celebrity status to follow during the next 3 eras was unpredictable. She was all over the headlines for everything from her music/music videos and personal life to fashion. 

 

I think during her early twenties she was just living her crazy life in front of the media and throughout she slowly transitioned into an incredibly diverse and respectable artist. She has come a long way from the controversial party girl she once was.
