How Rihanna Built a $1.7 Billion Fortune

According to Forbes, Rihanna is now the richest female musician in the world with an estimated net worth of $1.7 billion.

She has become so wealthy, though, not because of her music. Her  Fenty Beauty brand's worth, which is estimated to be $1.4 billion, accounts for the majority of her wealth.

The remaining $270 million of Rihanna's $1.7 billion fortune is held in her stake in Savage X Fenty, her lingerie line.

Three years after the brand's debut, in February 2021, Savage X Fenty achieved a significant milestone when its valuation surpassed $1 billion. In this business, Rihanna still holds a 30% ownership stake.

She has sold over 250 million records globally and has garnered seven MTV Video Music Awards, eight Billboard Music Awards, nine Grammy Awards, and thirteen American Music Awards.

However, her music only contributes a small portion of her total wealth.

Samsung, Secret Body Spray, MAC Cosmetics, Budweiser, Armani, Dior, Cover Girl, Gucci, Clinique, and River Island are just a few of the brands she has worked with.

With a net worth of $307 million in 2016, Rihanna has amassed over $1 billion in just five years.
