Beauty pays — just ask Rihanna.

The “Needed Me” singer has been hard at work, work, work, work, work, work over the last year and it shows. Now, the Barbados native has been named as the world’s richest female musician, courtesy of Forbes magazine.

The launch of her Fenty Beauty collection has left Rihanna rolling in more than glitter, as its mass success has helped the new entrepreneur rake in $600 million.

The impressive figure has also been aided by her extensive music category and world tours.

What’s even cooler, is that the fortune — which places her above the likes of fellow mononymous artists such as Madonna and Beyoncé, as well as Celine Dion — comes a decade after Rihanna was reportedly bankrupt.

The 31-year-old has even more opportunity to increase her earnings as she is rumored to release her 9th studio album sometime this year.
