Rihanna made the Forbes Billionaires list thanks to deals that go far beyond her singing career. At 34 years old, pregnant and also breaking paradigms for a pregnant woman, Rihanna has a fortune valued at US$ 1.7 billion, something around R$ 8.1 billion.

In the list of billionaires in general, the Barbadian-born artist would be in 1,729th place, technically tied with the likes of former basketball player Michael Jordan, and Alberto and Marina Prada, heirs of the Italian brand founded in 1913.

Fenty Beauty

Rihanna owes some of her financial success to the cosmetics brand Fenty Beauty, which she created in 2017. Today, Rihanna co-owns the brand alongside LVMH, a French luxury retailer. In 2020 alone, Fenty is estimated to have generated over $550 million in revenue. Among other reasons, Fenty Beauty has become popular for a wide range of products that span many skin tones, reaching 50 today.

Savage x Fenty

The singer also has a 30% stake in the Savage x Fenty lingerie line, valued at $1 billion earlier this year. The name of the singer’s companies has a personal origin: it is her own surname, baptized as Robyn Rihanna Fenty.

Winner of nine Grammys and countless other awards, Rihanna became the best-selling digital artist in history, even entering the Guinness Book, the book of records. Absolute hits like “SOS”, “Umbrella”, “Don’t stop the music”, “Disturbia”, “Take a Bow” and “Rude Boy” helped the singer in the numbers. Recently, Spotify gave her the title of most played woman of all time on the platform. Since the beginning of his career, in the early 2000s, eight albums have been recorded, the last being “Anti”, in 2016.
