Rihanna became the wealthiest female musician in the world in 2021 – here’s how she became a billionaire as she achieves a seriously impressive net worth.
Rihanna is a truly successful human from her Fenty Beauty collection to her Savage X Fenty line and let's not forget, her incredible chart success with her music, so it comes as no surprise that RiRi has one of the biggest net worths in the business.
The ‘Work’ songstress - who has just confirmed her pregnancy with A$AP Rocky - has a number of different business ventures under her belt, which has more than contributed to her high earnings in recent years and have even given her billionaire status.
To name a few, Rihanna has launched a beauty brand, a skincare range, a lingerie company and not to mention, her riches from being an all-around entertainer.
But just how did Riri become a billionaire and exactly how much is she worth? Here’s the low-down on her net worth and a look inside her lucrative businesses…
Proving she’s the queen of everything, Riri is indeed a billionaire!
Rihanna's said to have a net worth of around $1.7 billion (£1.2 billion), to be exact. This now makes her the wealthiest female musician in the world.
The 33-year-old is also the second richest female entertainer, beaten only by Oprah – not too shabby!
If you’ve been a long-term Riri stan, you’ll know about her numerous business ventures, which have undoubtedly helped her reach billionaire status.
According to Forbes, she can attribute the majority of her net worth - $1.4 billion of it - to Fenty Beauty, which she owns 50% of (as it’s a 50/50 joint venture with LVMH).
On top of that, Riri’s lingerie line Savage x Fenty is estimated to be worth a staggering $270 million (£194 million).
The entrepreneurial star launched the third volume of her lingerie line on September 24th, an eclectic mix of famous faces strutted down the inclusive catwalk, from Gigi Hadid to Sabrina Carpenter to Irina Shayk.
The rest of her earnings come from her highly successful music and acting career, as well as brand endorsement deals she has raked in over the years.
The 'Needed Me' songstress has featured in flicks from Valerian to Ocean's 8!
She’s not stopping there either as she recently announced she’ll be launching Fenty Perfume and has even trademarked Fenty Hair, so we’re sure the $$ is sure to soar over time!
Congrats, Riri, and please drop the album soon?!
