Rihanna is one of the most listened to artists in the past 10 years and for the right reasons. She has given us numerous hits that will stay with us for eternity. If a bunch of awards and records weren’t enough, now she’s been declared the richest female musician by Forbes.
According to Forbes, Rihanna’s net worth currently sits at $1.7 billion. She is ranked at #1729 on the list of billionaires. That massive total makes Rihanna the richest female musician on the planet by some margin.
We have known for some time how much impact RiRi has on the music industry. However, this is only the first time for the singer on the list. Rihanna is just one of 2,668 billionaires in the world at the moment and is proudly the first billionaire from Barbados.
A large portion of Rihanna’s wealth is due to her massive beauty brand Fenty Beauty. The company is co-owned by LVMH of which RiRi has a 50% stake. She also has a 30% stake in the Savage X Fenty lingerie line making her business portfolio much richer.
The Fenty Beauty founder is now pregnant and in her third trimester. She and ASAP Rocky announced their pregnancy last year with an amazing photoshoot. Ever since then we have seen Rihanna dress up in different styles while showing off her belly bump.
It’s great to see such a powerful female singer on the Forbes Billionaire list. Previously we have seen the likes of Beyonce on the same list. Inspiring millions of women to live their life to their full potential, Rihanna has become quite the woman to look up to.
