Sure she has delivered great music, but without solid investments, the beautiful Barbadian woman would be stuck at just $10 million.

Excerpt from

Rihanna is first and foremost a musician, and a popular one at that. Roc Nation’s website brags that Rihanna is the “top-selling digital artist of all time,” having sold more than 60 million albums and 215 million digital tracks. That buzz translates to profit: Billboard reported in 2016 that she earned $7.6 million from streaming, $2.5 million from sales and $10.1 million in recording royalties. (The figures haven’t been updated yet for 2017.)

Rihanna does a lot of work, work, work, work, work live, too. Even back in 2011, her “Loud” tour grossed over $90 million (for comparison, Jay-Z and Kanye’s tour that same year made just over $48 million). In 2013, her “Diamonds” World Tour brought in more than $137 million.

She’s also a part-owner of the streaming service Tidal, which has recently been having issues but was at one point valued at $600 million.
