The most successful single released from her sophomore album was undeniably lead track “SOS”, which earned Rihanna her first number-one on the US Billboard Hot 100, remaining there for three consecutive weeks. Here, she collects the Best International Video Artist during the 2006 Much Music Video Awards in Toronto.

Response from critics to the album itself was again mixed. However this did not stop the Barbadian singer earning a spot on Jay-Z’s Rock The Block tour, as well as her own headline Rihanna: Live in Concert tour.
