Back in March, Bloomberg reported that Savage X Fenty lingerie company was working with advisors on an initial public offering that could value the firm at $ 3 billion or more. Rihanna owns 30% of that company.
Rihanna thrives on several business ventures. She is a Fenty Beauty co-owner and holds a 30% stake in her brand, Savage x Fenty lingerie. She has also dabbled in Fenty Beauty.

Not just that, she is also the only woman under 40 to be on Forbes ’list of female billionaires in the US in 2022.
Rihanna owes her wealth to be inclusive in her ventures. “A lot of women felt there were no [makeup] lines out there that catered to their skin tone. It was light, medium, medium-dark, dark — we all know that’s not reality, “Bluestock Advisors co-founder of consumer products, Shannon Coyne, reportedly told Forbes.” She was one of the first brands that came out and said, ‘I want to speak to all of those different people.’ “
