Forbes Names Rihanna The Wealthiest Female Musician In The World

Ms. Fenty is on the road to becoming a billionaire.

(AllHipHop News) It's been a huge week for the Roc Nation family in the world of finance. Following Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter officially becoming Hip Hop's first billionaire, Forbes christened Robyn Rihanna Fenty as "The World’s Richest Female Musician."

The esteemed business magazine revealed the 31-year-old R&B/Pop icon from Barbados has an estimated fortune of $600 million. That puts Rihanna's net worth ahead of Madonna ($570 million), Céline Dion ($450 million), and Beyoncé ($400 million).

While RiRi became a global superstar because of #1 hits such as "Umbrella," "Rude Boy," "We Found Love," and "Work," it's her reported 15% ownership in Fenty Beauty cosmetics that plays the biggest part in the entertainer being $400 million away from billionaire status. Fenty Beauty is worth approximately $3 billion.

Rihanna also co-owns the Savage X Fenty lingerie line. Additionally, the 9-time Grammy winner recently announced a new fashion brand with LVMH, the company that owns around 50% of Fenty Beauty. She said, “My fashion will be different and non-traditional because I do not come from this industry."
