Congrats are in order for Rihanna who’s made Forbes’ 2022 billionaires list — making her the first Barbados billionaire as well the World’s Richest Female Musician With $1.7 Billion.
The annual list was released on Tuesday (Apr. 5) and also included two of Rih’s past collaborators JAY-Z and Kanye West. Since forging her successful music career with her fan-favorite makeup and lingerie endeavors, Rihanna ranked at #1,729 on the list. With this new achievement, Rihanna became the first billionaire of Barbados, her home country — which honored her with a special award back in December for her many achievements.
Additionally, Rihanna is now also the richest female musician. She’s now successfully leveraged her musical and celebrity status to reach a $1.7 billion feat with her Fenty Beauty brand and Savage x Fenty brand!
