Earlier today, Forbes has announced Rihanna’s reign as the richest female musician. The Bajan beauty mogul reportedly has a fortune of $600 million, topping Madonna, Beyoncé and Celine Dion.
Forbes was proud to take notes of Ri Ri’s success.
“Most of that comes not from music but from her partnership with LVMH, the French luxury goods giant run by billionaire Bernard Arnault. Rihanna and LVMH co-own the makeup brand Fenty Beauty. It launched in September 2017 at Sephora, another LVMH brand, and online at FentyBeauty.com, quickly becoming a viral success. Fenty Beauty racked up a reported $100 million in sales in its first few weeks, propelled by Rihanna’s fame and 71 million Instagram followers.”
Fenty Beauty has a reported total of $570 million in sales during the first 15 months of its launch. She then followed up with her clothing line, Fenty.
