Music star Rihanna has surpassed Kylie Jenner as the youngest self-made woman billionaire, according to Forbes.

The 34-year-old earned the title as she ranked with a net worth of $1.4billion.

Her impressive milestone comes more than three years after the outlet bestowed the much-coveted title to Kylie Jenner, who is estimated to have a current net worth of $600 million.

According to Forbes, Rihanna⁠—as co-owner of Fenty Beauty and holder of a 30 percent stake in her Savage x Fenty lingerie line⁠—is also her native Barbados’ first billionaire, as well as the only woman under 40 on this year’s list of female billionaires in the U.S.

Her net worth may soon go up, too. The singer, who recently welcomed her first child with A$AP Rocky, has been teasing that she has new music in the works.

A portion of the singer’s fortunes is credited to her Grammy-award-winning career with hits such as “Umbrella” featuring Jay-Z and “Run This Town,” another collaboration with the rapper and Kanye West.

A majority of her earnings, however, have been accumulated from her numerous retail brands: Fenty Beauty, Fenty Skin, and Savage X Fenty.

Meanwhile, 24-year-old Kylie used to hold the crown due to her multiple business ventures and impressive bank account.

The mom of two founded the makeup company Kylie Cosmetics started Kylie Baby and Kylie Skin and has many other collaborations under her belt.

In 2019, the makeup mogul was declared the youngest self-made billionaire, unseating Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who earned the title at 23 years old.
