Rihanna has entered the very closed circle of billionaire stars, announced the economic magazine Forbes. The singer and designer has amassed a fortune of $ 1.7 billion.

At 33, she thus becomes the richest singer in the world. But even if the singer of “Umbrella” is known worldwide for her hits, it is not thanks to them that she rose to the top of the podium.

Rihanna has been building a business empire for a few years: Fenty. It is from it that most of her wealth comes from, according to Forbes. Fenty comes in multiple businesses, with Fenty Beauty at the top of the list. This cosmetics brand, launched in 2017 by Rihanna and the luxury group LVMH, brings the singer 1.4 billion dollars.

It must be said that Fenty Beauty is very successful. The company has bet on inclusiveness, offering products adapted to all types of skin tones. The foundation alone has no less than 50 shades. This bias has allowed Fenty Beauty to overtake other brands created by celebrities, such as Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner or KKW Beauty by Kim Kardashian.


Savage x Fenty works on the same principle. This lingerie company, always supported by LVMH, offers underwear for every body type. Forbes estimates its worth at $ 270 million.


Despite the pandemic, the number of French billionaires has increased

“The Fenty Ecosystem” was completed last year with Fenty Skin, an ever-inclusive skincare line. The only failure: the ready-to-wear brand Fenty, stopped after two years, after having suffered greatly from the health crisis.

Even though Rihanna fans are cheering for Fenty’s development, many are eagerly awaiting an album from the singer. She, who used to release one a year, hasn’t created a new one since Anti in 2016. The album included the singles “Work” and “Love On The Brain”.
