Rihanna continues to appear in Forbes World’s Billionaires List 2022.
Accordingly, she is ranked 1,729 with a total fortune of $ 1.7 billion. This made her the first dollar billionaire of Barbados and continues to be the richest female singer in the world. Although she has not released any album or M/V for a long time. “Umbrella” – the song released 12 years ago, is one of the songs that made Rihanna’s name.
Last year, Rihanna surpassed the $1 billion mark to become the richest female singer in the world, according to Forbes.
On August 4, 2021, Forbes said that Rihanna currently owns a net worth of about $ 1.7 billion. She is the richest female singer in the world and the second richest woman in the entertainment industry, behind only host Oprah Winfrey ($2.7 billion).
Although famous as a singer, Rihanna mainly makes money through business. Her $1.4 billion fortune is thanks to the beauty brand Fenty Beauty. The singer founded this company in 2017 and now owns about 50% of the shares. Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie brand also earned her about $270 million. The rest of the assets come from the profits of music and movie projects.
Rihanna was born in 1988 in Barbados – an island nation in the Caribbean, among the highest-grossing singers in the world, with more than 250 million records sold. She has won 9 Grammy Awards, 13 American Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards and holds 6 Guinness World Records.
The singer is currently dating and pregnant with American rapper A$AP after breaking up with Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel in early 2020.
