When a discussion on the wealthiest female artist comes up, there are many who may think they know exactly who takes the leading title.
Few names come to mind, though Beyonce and Madonna both have shared quite the dalliance with high net worth. With tours, record sales and more, Beyonce comes in boasting a $400 million dollar net worth and Madonna surpasses her by a whopping $170 million according to Forbes.
Rihanna however, has every female artist in the industry beat out with an astonishing $600 million dollar net worth.
Rihanna has topped Billboard charts with 14 number one hits including, “Work,” “Disturbia,” and “Umbrella” just to name a few.
Her bold and direct attitude has shown the world that she undoubtedly has what it takes to be a boss and showcase her entrepreneurial spirit.
In 2017, Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty in connection with Sephora, a world renowned name in the beauty industry.
Her makeup and skincare line which aims to provide options for diverse skin types has been wildly successful and well discussed amongst millions of women all over social media networks.
Fenty Beauty, a brand now followed by over 9 million, has made a name for itself in the world of makeup.
Rihanna even posts tutorials, inside quotes and tips for many of her high quality products, allowing fans to glimpse her personality and passion for her product.
While the door to the beauty community has been welcoming, Rihanna has dared to dabble even further with the launch of Fenty Fashion wear. A clothing line ranging from seductive lingerie to sporty activewear, Fenty Fashion has something for everyone including plus sized and curvy women.
Fenty beauty and fashion combined with Rihanna’s bad girl essence and musical prowess make her an unstoppable force and Jack of all trades.
The money hasn’t changed things for the rising talent, as she delights with a company mission statement striving to break free of convention and rules.
Featured on her Fenty Universe home page, she states in her own words, “Some days I want to be submissive, many days I’m completely in charge and most days I feel like being both….so it was imperative that we created a line versatile enough to embrace and celebrate us(women) in that way.”
Celebrate they have, as young women all over the world are feeling inspired and kindred with Rihanna’s line as it drives the movement of empowerment and success forward.
With her chart topping music, fashion and beauty products, one can only wonder what Rihanna plans to venture into next.
In the meantime making history as the worlds wealthiest female artist is likely only one of many titles we can look forward to seeing branded across her image. Perhaps her success will also inspire her fans to believe that achieving more is always possible.
