Rihanna Makes History As America’s First Female Self-Made Billionaire

By becoming the America’s youngest female self-made billionaire, Rihanna has made history. The 34-year-old singer knocked reality star Kim Kardashian off the top spot with a net worth of $1.4 billion.

All That Success

She has sold 60 million albums and 215 million digital tracks globally, making her the best-selling digital artist of all time, but her musical fortune is still quite modest. Her commercial ventures, particularly her cosmetics label Fenty Beauty, account for the great majority of her wealth.

Raking It In

In addition to this, she owns a 30% stake in the Savage x Fenty lingerie collection, which was given a $1 billion valuation in February of last year. She also has a sizable collection of real estate, including a $13.75 million Beverly Hills residence, a $10 million pad next door, and a Hollywood Hills rental property.

The popular singer has expressed how it was quite odd to be congratulated because of her money, but that didn’t stop her from making history. Much more will be coming Rihanna’s way and hopefully, more of the success here on out.
