Rihanna Named The World’s Richest Female Musician

Congratulations are in order for Rihanna! According to Forbes, she has transpired as the richest female musician in the world. The icon has a net worth of $600 million topping Madonna ($570 million), Celine Dion ($450 million), and Beyoncé ($400 million).

The 31- year- old Barbados native’s fortune does not merely come from just her music. The majority of her income derives from her Fenty Beauty Line that she launched back in 2017. It has become widely popular for its 40 foundations that accommodate a range of skin tones. RiRi also has a lingerie line, Savage X Fenty, which caters to a variety of body types that was launched in 2017 as well. She recently announced a new line named Fenty Maison that will include clothes, shoes, jewelry, and accessories. Both Savage X Fenty and Fenty Maison are partnered with LVMH, the French multinational luxury goods conglomerate.

The day of the announcement she made a statement about co-owning with CEO Bernard Arnault. “Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us. Mr. Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits. I couldn’t imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I’m ready for the world to see what we have built together.”

The ‘Work’ singer last released her ‘Anti’ album three years ago and fans have been begging for new music since then. The Rihanna Navy even came up with memes all over social media asking, “Where is the album?” A few days ago Rihanna posted to her Instagram story of her in the studio with the caption “behind the scenes of where’s the album” hinting at fans that she is finally working on new music.
