Here’s How Rihanna Became the World’s Wealthiest Female Musician and the Way She Celebrates Her Success
The Barbadian pop icon, Rihanna is undeniably shinning bright like a diamond. Aside from her musical success, Rihanna also dominates in business, fashion, and even in the silver screen.
At the age of 31, she is considered the world’s wealthiest female musician, as per Forbes. Compared to her early life, where she could barely afford a pair of Timberland, Rihanna now possesses an estimated fortune of $600 million.
Road to Success
But of course, her riches didn’t just magically pop up in her bank account. It took her determination and hard work to reach the highest point of the ladder. Her financial success is rooted not only from music but also from brand endorsements, and business investments.
They said, the more good deeds you do, the more blessings come into your way. Rihanna always lends a helping hand to those in need, be it her own family, friends, or even strangers. In 2017, Harvard hailed her as Humanitarian of the Year.
To have a clearer breakdown, first, let’s talk about her music career. Rihanna earned $140 million from her 2013 Diamonds World Tour. She also partnered-up with Samsung during her 2016 Anti World Tour with a $25 million worth of sponsorship. The pop artist gained $7.6 million in revenue from streaming platforms and $2.5 million from selling over 60 million albums worldwide.
Business and Investments
In terms of business, she co-owns the streaming service, Tidal and is the founder of the cosmetic brand, Fenty Beauty. Together with LVMH, Rihanna also opened a clothing house Fenty in May of 2019. She also tied-up with TechStyle Fashion to start the Savage X Fenty lingerie line. Not to mention the 11 fragrances that she released throughout the years.
Rihanna, known as a fashion icon, is also a designer for brands such as Armani and River Island. She’s also the face of several brands like MAC, Dior, and Cover Girl. As if, Rihanna isn’t already doing a lot, she is also part of Puma’s design team as a creative director.
Work Hard, Play Hard
Anyone who works hard needs to play hard, and Rihanna is not an exemption to that rule. She spoils herself in lavish vacations, such as cruising the Mediterranean sea in superyachts. Rihanna also takes occasioanl luxurious trips to Portofino, Honolulu, and her motherland, Barbados.
And, to keep up with her busy schedule, she hires the best people out there to help her manage her tasks. She has a personal chef, several fitness trainers, stylists, make-up artists, and dermatologists available for her around the clock. Another way she chooses to view this fact is that she is creating job opportunities for professionals and in a way, is helping them make a living.
Sharing Her Blessings
To further share her fortune, Rihanna knows how to use the philanthropist side of her in the best way possible. In September 2018, she hosted a Diamond Ball-Out under Fenty Beauty to donate all the proceeds to women and children in need. She also founded the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012 that provides scholarship and healthcare services.
We think the word you are looking for is “wow!” Oh, and we forgot to mention, there has been news that Rihanna gives cash gifts to her friends for Christmas. Who wants to apply to be her new pal?
