The list of billionaires of the Forbes ranking, grows with the entry of 3 iconic figures of American pop culture, Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Kanye West. With a fortune of more than a billion dollars, these 3 artists are making waves among the world’s richest figures according to Forbes Magazine
1- Blacks, Artists and Billionaires
The talent of the singer Rihanna was recognized on November 30 during the award ceremony making her a “national hero” by her country, Barbados. The 34-year-old star, who is expecting her first child with singer A$AP Rocky, has been making headlines on social networks, with fans becoming increasingly ecstatic about the series of good news surrounding the star.
In August 2021, she will become the richest woman musician in the world today and at the same time, the first Barbadian billionaire.
Jay-Z, artist-singer, producer of rap and urban music, husband and partner of Beyoncé, also becomes a billionaire according to the Forbes ranking. Given his record sales figures above all artists in the last 12 months, there is no doubt that the rapper will be among the richest men in the world in 2022. His wallet, however, does not reach that of his fellow rapper Kanye West, known as Ye.
Known as Ye, since he created the brand Yeezy in partnership with Adidas, the rapper Kanye West, enters the Forbes ranking after a series of events a little surprising, as his highly publicized breakup of his couple with the reality TV star Kim Kardashian, and the release of his album called “Christian”.
The star has led other actions in favor of the inmates of a prison in Arizona, and his pairs, which continue to flood the current fashion market, make him an icon of fashion and African-American pop culture.
2- The Billionaire Trio
Every year Forbes magazine publishes its overall ranking of billionaires. And the positions are magnificent for our 3 artists of the moment.
The good news for Miss Robyn Fenty aka Rihanna, who is listed at the 729th place, with her fortune allegedly estimated at 1.7 billion dollars. although, this wealth comes partly from her cosmetics and lingerie brand Fenty Beauty, created in partnership with the French brand LVMH.
She continues to expand her brand by offering new beauty products to her fans, recently announcing that she will launch a perfume very soon.
Kanye West, meanwhile, gets the 1,513th place, thanks to his monumental fortune estimated by the Forbes selection at more than 2 billion dollars. Astronomical sum coming to him from the very profitable YEEZY deal with Adidas and his second contract with the Gap brand. Even if the singer Ye claims that his fortune is more than 7 billion dollars, the approximation made by Forbes magazine still estimates the fortune of the much-appreciated rapper at less than that.
Jay-Z, known as the greatest Hip-Hop artist, is at the 2076th place in the Forbes ranking for an estimated fortune of 1.4 billion dollars. The sale of his shares in the streaming service Tidal, and especially the sale of Armand de Brignac to LVMH. Compared to Elon Musk who holds a fortune of 219 billion dollars, and Jeff Bezos with a fortune of 171 billion dollars, the trio that made its entry still scores points in the ranking.
