Music for Teens

   Robyn Rihanna Fenty, better known as simply Rihanna, is a Barbadian recording artist. She was born in Saint Michael, Barbados. When she was 16 years old, she moved to the United States to pursue a recording career under the guidance of record producer Evan Rogers. Her most famous songs are "Umbrella", "Rude Boy", "Take a Bow", "Don´t Stop the Music" and others. Her style is unique because she mixes R&B and Caribbean music and her biggest influence is Madonna (she says she wants to be the "black Madonna").
Rihanna was Chris Brown´s girlfriend but they broke up because he used to injure her.
   In 2011 she came to Brazil to perform in Rock in Rio festival. On the same day, before her show, Katy Perry (a big friend of hers) performed. Some say she arrived late because she was at her friend´s party!

   Teens love Rihanna because she is one of the best selling artists of all time and her songs are amazing!!!

   Curtis James Jackson III (South Jamaica, July 6 of 1975),  better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is a rapper and an American actor. He rose to fame with the release of the albums Get Rich or Die tryin' (2003) and The Massacre (2005). His most famous songs are "I Get Money", "Amusement Park", "Candy Shop" and others.
   50 Cent became involved in several fights and discussions with other rappers, including Ja Rule, Fat Joe, Jadakiss, CAM'RON, Rick Ross and the former G-Unit The Game and Young Buck
   50 Cent was chosen as the sixth best artist of the Decade and the sixth most successful between 2000-2009 magazine's American Billboard. The Billboard also appointed him as the best rap singer of this period.

   I think some young people like 50 cent because of the things he does and sings. He rules!!!

   Linkin Park is an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California. The band is formed by Chester Bennington (vocals), Rob Bourdon (drums), Brad Delson (lead guitar, backing vocals), Dave Farrell (bass guitar, backing vocals), Joe Hahn (turntables, keyboard, samples, backing vocals) and Mike Shinoda (vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboard, production). They mix rock, alternative metal, nu metal and rap rock sound with influences and elements from hip-hop, alternative rock, and electronica, utilizing programming and synthesizers.
   I think teens like Linkin Park because of the way they mix rock and rap. Their songs are very cool!!!
