Singer, Musician, makeup entrepreneur, designer and now the first black woman to head a top luxury fashion house – Rihanna has racked up a $600 million dollars fortune to become the world’s richest musician women, Forbes said on Tuesday.
The 31 year old Lady – born Robyn Rihanna Fenty in the Barbados – has amassed wealth exceeding that of Madonna ($570 million dollars), Celine Dion ($450 million dollars) and Beyonce ($400 million dollars), whose husband Jay Z was just named the world’s first billionaire rap singer.
Rihanna’s ranking puts into fresh perspective one of her signature lyrics – (work, work, work, work, work,) which opened Rihanna’s 2016 dancehall smash (Work.)
Since bursting into the scene in year 2003, Rihanna has spun her triumphs in music into entrepreneurial gold, launching her makeup brand Fenty Beauty, co-owned by French luxury giant LVMH – in The September 2017 online and with The Sephora.
The line found success not least thanks to Musician Rihanna’s fame both on and offline, with some $570 million dollars in revenue last year after just 15 months of the business.
Rihanna makes the majority of her Earning from touring and musical releases, according to Forbes, but also co-owns her Savage X Fenty lingerie line.
In May 2019, Rihanna launched an ground-breaking partnership with LVMH to launch an luxury fashion brand based in The Paris it will make ready to wear clothes, shoes and other accessories.
A new big scale luxury label – especially one led by an black woman – is a big development in the world of fashion, with Rihanna’s line Fenty sitting alongside legacy brands like Dior, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Givenchy on the conglomerate headed by Bernard Arnault.
(I just want to see things from my perspective. I’m a young black Lady who loves and embraces all of the young people’s ideas and energies – I’m so about that,) Rihanna told AFP in The Paris recently.
(That is about turning all of that into something luxurious for this fashion house.)
The musician’s explosive rise to music mega star and global fashion icon did not come without tribulations, including father’s bids to profit off her name and the highly publicized domestic violence case it saw her then boyfriend Chris Brown charged in year 2009 with assaulting her.
In addition to Rihanna’s venture into luxury fashion, Rihanna has hinted at dropping an new reggae album this year 2019.
(I never thought I’d make this much money, so the number is not going to stop me from working,) Rihanna told The New York Times‘ T Magazine in May 2019.
(Money is happening along the way, but I working out of what I love to do, what I’m passionate about.)
