Imagine being worth US$600 million. I know, sounds like the dream. Well, Caribbean pop princess, 31 year old Robyn ‘Rihanna’ Fenty, was recently named the wealthiest woman in music; surpassing Madonna by $30 million, Celine Dion by $150 million and Beyoncé by $200 million.

Music however, is just a fraction of how she landed her wealth. ‘Bad gal RiRi’ is an entrepreneur mogul. She is the first black woman to create original brands such as, Fenty Beauty and her latest, Savage X Fenty, with French fashion house, LVMH

The cosmetic brand generated an estimated US$570 million in revenue in its first 15 months, according to Forbes. They (Forbes) estimate that the operation is worth more than US$3 billion, with LVMH owning about half of that.
