American singer and songwriter, Rihanna has been named the richest female musician in United Kingdom.
Rihanna’s price just continues to rise, and recently she earned the No. 3 spot on the
UK’s @thetimes annual Rich List.
After moving to London, the sensational singer became eligible to be included in this year’s list.
She is worth an estimated £468m, which places her at the top of the list right behind
Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sir Paul McCartney, who are both worth £800m.
According to @elleuk, Rihanna is the only solo female musician that earned a spot in
the Top 20, and if she continues to reside in London she’ll be on track to becoming
the first female billionaire musician in the UK.
Robert Watts who compiles the annual list talked to @bbcnews about Rihanna
earning her spot on the list and said, “She somewhat caught us by surprise.
Very few people knew she was living in the UK until last summer.
Rihanna was also placed third on Sunday Times Rich List, a move that showed how
influential she has become.
Last year Forbes named Rihanna the World’s Richest Female Musician and detailed how she earned her $600 million fortune during that time.
