The recent Forbes list on Wednesday(4 Aug) featured the R&B singer on their ranking of the world’s billionaires and surprisingly, its not her music career but rather her business that earned her a spot among the other uber-wealthy.

RiRi, as she is popularly known, took the music industry by storm back in 2005 with her hit debut album, ‘Music of the Sun‘ and from that moment on, there was no turning back .She went on to drop global hits one after another such as ‘SOS’, ‘Umbrella‘ and ‘Shut Up And Drive’ among others which earned her numerous accolades from Grammys to MTV Music awards. She has also had several successful on-screen projects such as BattleshipOcean’s 8 and Guava Island.

Known for her wild style and free spirit, one of her iconic moments was when she made headlines for the ‘daring’ Swarovski-crystals dress that she wore to the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards ceremony in 2014. At the event, she acknowledged how there were some rules to fashion but in true RiRi style went on to add that “rules are meant to be broken.” Yass, Queen!

Rihanna soon ventured into business as she launched her beauty brand in 2017, Fenty Beauty Cosmetics Company along with French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH. The brand which sought to make “women everywhere (feel) included ” took off instantly to become one of the most popular lines by a celebrity and this helped her to amass a large chunk of the fortune that she now holds today.

Forbes reported that her stakes in Fenty Beauty Cosmetics Company contributes to $1.4 billion of her net worth. The rest of her net worth comes from her stake in lingerie company Savage x Fenty ( $270 million ) and earnings from acting and music career.

While we are super thrilled for her latest accomplishment, we can’t help but raise the one question that’s been on the minds of all her other fans out there too, “Please, please tell you have an album coming out soon?”
