Rihanna is one of the most recognizable faces and voices in pop music. She also has an overflowing bank account to match.

According to Forbes, RiRi is not a billionaire. She has worked hard to grind at the music game where she transitioned that popularity into her Fenty Beauty brand in 2017. Since then she’s been racking in the dough.

It is reported that Fenty Beauty alone is worth, at least, $2.8 billion. Rihanna holds a 50% ownership in that company. In total, Rihanna’s fortune is valued at $1.7 billion.

This makes Rihanna the wealthiest female musician on the planet. She is the second wealthiest female entertainer, second only to Oprah Winfrey herself. That’s not a bad spot to be in, especially if your only competition is Oprah.

Savage x Fenty accounts are also worth $270 million, but the rest of RiRi’s fortune was attained through her work in the entertainment industry. Obviously, a majority of her value has bee acquired from outside endeavors.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
