Forbes has released their list of top 100 richest self-made women in America and R&B/Pop artiste Rihanna has claimed her spot amongst the group of extraordinarily successful women for the first time.
The Bajan native is not only known for her top-notch talent as a singer however is also widely recognized as a top business owner with her Fenty Beauty and Fenty Savage brands that have managed to pull in very large revenues since their inception.
In the first year of operation, Ri Ri’s Fenty brand in partnership with Luxury goods brand LVMH has reportedly recorded a 570 million dollar earning which is very immaculate.
It is also interesting to note that the young business Mogul has been extending her cosmetics and lingerie line since 2020 so she has many more rewards to reap from the beauty and fashion industry.
Together with her music that does not stop selling, she now stands as the richest female musician and has the number 33 spot on the coveted forces list for the self-made Queens of America.
This is groundbreaking for Rihanna as she has not released an album in 5 years so one can only imagine her cash flow after her next project is released.
The “Shine bright like a diamond” singer’s net worth since October 13, stands at $600 million ahead of names like Beyonce, Celine Dion, Taylor Swift and many more.
It is a well-known fact too that the self-made Rihanna believes highly in charity as she has donated more than 8 million dollars herself towards helping those affected by Covid-19, while still helping the affected through her Clara Lionel Foundation that raised over 22.5 million dollars for Coronavirus relief.
Fans have been begging the Caribbean star for new music in an album but she as been reluctant to put out new music. In one of her recent live chats someone asked about her upcoming album and her response was, “If one of y’all (expletives) ask me about the album one more time when I’m trying to save the world unlike y’all president,” Rihanna said.
It was widely reported that Rihanna will release a Reggae inspired project but after many push backs it’s unclear what genre her album will be and when the new project will be released.
