Though her introduction to the world came through her debut album “Music of the Sun,” Rihanna — born Robyn Rihanna Fenty — has expanded her empire to including acting and running multiple businesses.

Although she hasn’t delivered a new solo album since 2016’s “Anti,” her hiatus from music hasn’t greatly impacted her net worth because of her other projects.

According to a Forbes report published in June 2023, Rihanna has an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion — making her one of the wealthiest female musicians in the world.

Here’s a breakdown of all that encompasses her empire.

Like most musicians, Rihanna has made a decent amount of her earnings from her performances.

Though she’s been on a few tours since hitting the scene in 2005, it wasn’t until 2010’s Last Girl On Earth Tour that she started seeing some major touring profits.

The tour, which promoted her fourth studio album “Rated R,” grossed $40 million. Within a year, she embarked on the Loud Tour to promote the album by the same name, and BET reports she earned an estimated $90 million

.

Additionally, her Diamonds World Tour in 2013 went on to gross more than $140 million worldwide and sold out 84 out of the 87 stops on the tour, reports Billboard.

She also made money from co-headline spots and sponsorships.

The singer also co-headlined a tour with rapper Eminem in 2014, which brought in over $36 million dollars for only six shows.

She’s also profited from tour sponsorships. In 2015, Rihanna signed a $25 million contract to promote Samsung on her 2016 Anti World Tour, according to New York Post.

Though Rihanna has tapped into many ventures during her career, it all started with the music.

Since releasing her debut single, “Pon de Replay” in May 2005, she has released eight studio albums and, up until 2016’s “Anti” album, did so every year.

According to the Roc Nation website, Rihanna has sold more than 60 million albums and a jaw-dropping 215 digital million tracks. Additionally, according to Roc Nation, she has amassed over 11.8 billion views on and 21 Vevo certificates, which makes her the most viewed female artist on Vevo/YouTube.

According to Billboard, it was reported that the singer earned 7.6 million from streaming, 2.5 million from sales, and $10.1 million in royalties in 2016.

And, she’s also part-owner in the streaming service, Tidal, which has sold stakes for millions of dollars.

She has huge endorsement deals.

According to her website, she has designed collections for brands such as Armani and River Island.

She also has had creative partnerships with MAC Cosmetics.

And the entertainer has made deals with Dior, Balmain, Gucci, Manolo Blahnik, Louis Vuitton, CoverGirl, luxury jewelry line Chopard, sock company Stance, and more.

Those additional deals also include the aforementioned deal with Samsung.

And she’s worked with Puma on a high level.

Rihanna was named the creative director for Puma in 2014 and she spent years creating both clothing and shoe lines that have done exceptionally well.

It appears Rihanna has not released a collection with Puma since 2018.

She’s made waves in the beauty industry.

As of 2017, Rihanna’s shade-inclusive beauty line, Fenty Beauty, has become one of her most-known ventures. Launching in September of that year, many of the brand’s darker shades sold out within days of their release.

According to Vogue, the makeup line brought in $100 million in sales within the first 40 days of its launch.

Fenty Beauty is worth a conservative $2.8 billion, Forbes has estimated.

In 2022, the beauty line — which was previously sold only at Sephora — expanded to be sold at over 1,300 Ulta Cosmetics stores.

Rihanna has also debuted lingerie and her own show to highlight it.

Less than a year later, the “Man Down” songstress released her own line of lingerie, which has been celebrated for its size, color, and shape-inclusive pieces since its May 2018 release.

According to Rihanna’s Instagram stories, the line sold out in less than a month.

In 2019, Rihanna debuted the Savage X Fenty Show to showcase the lingerie.

Per Forbes, in 2021, Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty had reached a $1 billion valuation in the US women’s underwear sector.

She’s also made money from fragrances.

Before launching her makeup and lingerie lines, Rihanna was making strides in the fragrance department. Throughout the years, she has released 11 fragrances, with the latest being released this past August.

The new fragrance is a spin on the singer’s debut scent Reb’l Fleur — which originally outsold other perfumes by pop stars that year and reportedly brought in $80 million in sales, according to Rolling Stone.

Acting has made her a bit of coinage, too.

Making her acting debut in 2006’s “Bring It On: All or Nothing,” the star has gone on to appear in films such as “Home,” “Annie,” and, recently, “Ocean’s 8.”

Though it’s not clear how much she has earned from acting in these roles, “Ocean’s 8” alone earned a reported $41.5 million from its box-office opening.

And Rihanna has more projects in the works.

In July, the singer filed for a trademark for “Fenty Hair,” which could mean more projects are in the works.

She’s also been hinting at possibly releasing new music.
