That Rihanna reign isn't letting up anytime soon. The Fenty Beauty mogul is now the richest female musician in the world. Celebrate inside....

When Rihanna sung "work, work, work, work," chick wasn't playing.

Yes, we're all still waiting on R9, but RiRi is busy getting her coins in other ways, OK?

The 9-time Grammy Award winner - real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty - is now the world's richest female musician in the world, raking in a $600 million fortune, according to Forbes. The 31-year-old has evolved from a singer, to a style icon, and now a makeup/fashion entrepreneur. All of her hard work is treating her bank accounts hella nice. The Bajan beauty leads the pack of female musicians, earning more than Madonna ($570 million), Céline Dion ($450 million) and Beyoncé ($400 million).

The mogul-in-the-making can thank all of her entrepreneurial efforts for her huge fortune.

Rih recently released her BOMB new luxury collection in partnership with LVMH, the French luxury goods giant run by billionaire Bernard Arnault, FEИTY. And she made history doing it. She is the first black woman at the helm of a LVMH Maison and the first woman to launch an original brand at the conglomerate.



RiRi's Fenty Beauty, which Rihanna does own a percentage of, took over the makeup scene when it dropped 40 shades of foundation, ensuring her entire Navy found a match, which was very important to her.



Forbes reports:

Fenty Beauty generated an estimated $570 million in revenue last year, after only 15 months in business. The entire operation is worth, conservatively, more than $3 billion. Forbes estimates that LVMH owns an estimated 50% of it, while Rihanna has about 15%, a figure a spokesperson for the artist disputed but wouldn’t clarify further.

The fashion maven also co-owns Savage X Fenty lingerie. She's clearly following her mentor Jay-Z's blueprint.



Congrats, Rihanna!

Also, Rihanna landed a spot on Forbes' America’s Richest Self-Made Women Under 40, coming in at the No.5 spot. Beyoncé made the list, coming in at the No.9 spot with a net worth of $400 million, and Serena Williams checked in right behind Bey with a net worth of $225 milli.

Queen ish!
