Robyn Rihanna Fenty (born on February 20, 1988 in Saint Michael, Barbados), better known as simply Rihanna, is a Barbadian R&B recording artist, who performed the song “Hard” written by Terius Nash, Christopher Stewart, Rihanna and Jay Jenkin, and was produced by the former two, under their stage names The-Dream and Tricky Stewart. “Hard” received positive reviews from critics, who praised the collaboration between Rihanna and Jeezy, as well as the Rihanna’s vocal performance. The song debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 at number eighty, and peaked at number eight seven weeks later for one week, becoming her thirteenth top-ten single and sixteenth top-twenty hit this decade; this re-tied her with Beyoncé Knowles as the female artist with the most top ten hits on the Hot 100 in the 2000–2009 decade. It also peaked at number one on the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart. Although the song was only released as a single in the US (and the UK at a later date), it managed to chart in several countries around the world following the release of the music video, peaking within the top ten in Canada, as well as inside the top twenty in New Zealand and on the UK R&B Chart.
