In summer 2021, an artist that got her start performing “songs of the summer” reached a financial status that is often unprecedented for a majority of people in the arts. But this feels fitting for Rihanna, a recording artist and beauty mogul who inspired multiple generations of people to be more confident every day. Now that she’s a billionaire, it’s exciting to see what Rihanna will do next.  

In a time where most billionaires in the public eye resemble supervillains from comic books, it’s reassuring to see inspiring creatives also reaching that milestone. Rihanna is not the first musician to become a billionaire, but she is in great company.
