Rihanna Told She’d Be One Hit Wonder!!! RIHANNA revealed that she was told she would be a one-hit wonder early on in her career.
Evan Rogers, songwriter-producer and co-founder of Syndicated Rhythm Productions told Vulture, “Around ‘Pon de Replay’ people used to tell me, ‘She’s so cute, but you know, can’t really sing but you don’t care ’cause she’s just so cute.’ I would get so angry because I always knew she would be that girl that would eventually be doing songs like ‘Stay’ and ‘Diamonds.’ But I think the first time I felt like other people got it was ‘Umbrella.’”
Rihanna added, “I remember the first time out with ‘Pon de Replay,’ I got that a lot. A lot of people said I was going to be a one-hit wonder. But I worked my hardest to prove them wrong. And when we came out with the second album, ‘SOS’ and ‘Unfaithful,’ both blew up!”
She also said, “I can’t tell you where I’ll see myself in five years, but I can tell you I will work my best to be the most successful artist that I can be. [I want to be] remembered as Rihanna. Remembered as being the artist from the Caribbean who came here and made it internationally. Just remembered as me, ’cause I’m true to my music, and I just want people to realize that and appreciate me for that.”
