Robyn Rihanna Fenty, popularly known as Rihanna has officially claimed the title of the wealthiest female musician in the United States, surpassing renowned artists such as Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and Madonna.
Despite not releasing new music in recent years, the talented star has continued to make waves in various arenas.
Rihanna’s success has been remarkable, with notable achievements like her Super Bowl Halftime Show becoming the most streamed performance ever and her becoming the most followed female celebrity on Twitter.

Following closely behind is Beyoncé Knowles, with a net worth of $540 million (equivalent to N248 billion).
While she has also made strides in the fashion industry, a significant portion of Queen Bey’s wealth is derived from her successful solo music career and her time as a member of Destiny’s Child.
