Taylor Swift and Rihanna are the two top artists with smash singles on the Billboard Hot 100 charts; fans want to know who is wealthier between the two as they have been dominating the industry for years.
According to Billboard, Rihanna made her long-awaited comeback this year with “Lift Me Up,” a ballad from the official soundtrack of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
The most recent project was written partly to pay tribute to the late actor Chadwick Boseman, who died in 2020 from colorectal cancer. He was 43 years old at the time.
This week, Rihanna’s song finished second on the Hot 100 chart, failing to take the top spot. On the other hand, Taylor Swift dominated the charts this week with her smash hit “Anti-Hero” from her ever-popular album “Midnights.”
According to this week’s chart positions, Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ “Unholy” is at number three, Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit” is at number four, and Harry Styles’ “As It Was” is still at number five.
Taylor Swift has dominated the music industry since her debut in the mid-2000s. Celebrity Net Worth calculated the pop star’s net worth to be $450 million.
Throughout her career, she sold 200 million albums. Swift, one of the most in-demand artists today, has toured worldwide in recent years, earning her $150 million.
This year, the “Paper Rings” hitmaker will embark on her much-anticipated “The Eras” tour, covering all eras of her career.
The pop star’s real estate portfolio includes several properties across the United States. According to the publication, she owns homes and apartments in Nashville, Rhode Island, New York City, Los Angeles, and Massachusetts.
Swift may have topped the charts this week, but Rihanna has a larger net worth than Swift because she is a billionaire.
According to Forbes, the “Kiss It Better” singer is now the world’s richest female musician, with a net worth of $1.7 billion.
Although many believe she made most of her money from music, the outlet pointed out that her business ventures made her a billionaire.
Rihanna is the creator of the popular cosmetics line Fenty Beauty and the lingerie line Savage x Fenty.
