Rihanna is regarded by many a one of the greatest artists of all time, as well as an iconic businesswoman. Her Savage x Fenty lingerie line, Fenty Beauty makeup line, and Fenty Skin skincare line, have all been contributing to Rih’s massive wealth. This August, she went on to officially become a billionaire, as certified by Forbes. Rihanna is said to be worth $1.7 billion.
Rihanna Discusses This Historic Milestone
In a new interview with the New York Times, Rihanna discussed becoming a billionaire, and how she’s still soaking it all in. She reminisced on her times of growing up, and where she came from. Rihanna grew up in Barbados, and for many there, achieving this level of wealth is extremely difficult.
“It’s tricky because it’s hard to even accept that’s where you’re at because I know where I’ve come from,” Rihanna said. “At the same time, it feels good to be able to inspire young women and boys, who like me, come from humble beginnings, who come from parents who are immigrants or who are immigrants themselves, to be able to do this.”
Rihanna Is The Wealthiest Female Musician In The World
It’s been over five years since Rihanna has released new music, as she is locked in on succeeding, on other business ventures. $1.4 billion of her wealth, comes from her Fenty Beauty brand, as Rih owns 50% of it. The rest of her earnings come from her Savage x Fenty business, which has earned $270 million.
“A lot of women felt there were no lines out there that catered to their skin tone. It was light, medium, medium-dark, dark,” said Shannon Coyne, co-founder of consumer products consultancy Bluestock Advisors, regarding Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty, to Forbes. “We all know that’s not reality. She was one of the first brands that came out and said, ‘I want to speak to all of those different people.’”
Rihanna Fans Are Still Waiting For New Music
Rihanna is a phenomenal businesswoman, and her billionaire status is impressive, without a doubt. At the same time though, fans are still longing for new music from Rih. Her last studio album was “Anti,” which was released back in January 2016. That project was headlined by hit singles such as “Needed Me,” “Work” featuring Drake, and “Kiss It Better.” The last time that fans were able to hear new Rihanna vocals at all, was in March 2020, on PartyNextDoor’s “Believe It” single.
Rihanna Has Been Dating A$AP Rocky
Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky have also been a popular item, over the last year. In early 2020, Rih split from Saudi billionaire, Hassan Jameel, and A$AP soon quickly entered the picture. He and Rihanna were recently spotted at the Met Gala event in New York City, where the two were some of the. fan-favorites, regarding best outfits of the night. Rihanna also went on to support A$AP’s “Life Is Beautiful” festival performance, the next weekend, in Las Vegas. At the time, there was speculation that Rih may be pregnant, but she has yet to address this yet.
