As per Forbes, Rihanna’s fortune is now worth an estimated $600 million and its climbing (fast). Those numbers put her ahead of other leading female musicians like Madonna ($570 million), Celine Dion ($450 million) and Beyoncé ($400 million). What’s interesting to note is how Forbes makes no mention of relatively younger artists like Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, or Cardi B.
She also has several successful business ventures to thank for that No#1 spot. Rihanna’s partnership with LVMH, co-owned makeup brand Fenty Beauty, & luxury clothing line Fenty has all proven extremely successful. In its first 15 months, Fenty Beauty reportedly made $570 million in sales. Rihanna embracing her artistic freedom has also released a line of clothing that includes shoes, jewellery, lingerie and more.
Yesterday, Forbes announced Jay-Z as the first billionaire rapper, and Rihanna looks all set to match him soon. And she’s doing it while still repping it for all the ladies out there. To top it all off shes also collaborating with some big names in EDM for her upcoming album later this year.
