Rihanna put in the work and it’s paying off. The musician, fashion designer, and businesswoman is now the richest female artist on the planet.
According to Forbes, Rihanna’s fortune is worth an estimated $600 million and climbing. That puts her ahead of other leading female musicians, Madonna ($570 million), Celine Dion ($450 million) and Beyoncé ($400 million). (Forbes makes no mention of younger artists like Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, or Cardi B.)
Rihanna’s partnership with LVMH, co-owned makeup brand Fenty Beauty, and luxury clothing line Fenty have all proven extremely successful. Not to mention her sprawling catalog of hit music, which made a name for herself and paved the way for endless opportunity.
In its first 15 months, Fenty Beauty reportedly made $570 million in sales. Rihanna has also tapped into her fashion instincts with a line of clothing that includes shoes, jewelry, lingerie and more.
Yesterday, Forbes announced Jay-Z as the first billionaire rapper. At this rate, Rihanna could be following in his footsteps, all while repping for the hardworking ladies out there.
