Popular Female Musicians Make An Impressive List
Written by Mac Watson on June 7, 2023
Musicians like Taylor Swift, Beyoncé Knowles, and Rihanna have topped the music and download charts, and their hard work and talent has led them to a considerable fortune.
Rihanna has one of the highest net worth of these 15 celebrities, coming in 1st out of all female musicians. Her impressive Super Bowl Halftime show in Glendale, Arizona in February was the most watched Halftime performance in history. While the singer did not get paid for the performance, her concerts are almost always sell-outs, her royalties from her album downloads are massive, and she has branched out as an entrepreneur with her own beauty line.
Her line of makeup, Fenty Beauty, built on inclusivity, is overwhelmingly popular, netting over $2.8B for 2021. Her contribution to the blockbuster Marvel movie, Black Panther:Wakanda Forever. The heartfelt lyrics earned the song awards at both the 95th Academy Awards and 80th Golden Globe Awards which translates into cash and building her brand as an artist.
Taylor Swift, another female musician on the list, has done the impossible. She’s increased her net worth $170M, which is the highest increase of all the female celebrities on the list. While she is only the ninth-highest entertainer, she’s had a massive year with the success with her most recent album, Midnights, and the launch of the “Eras Tour,” her first tour in five years.
The tour, which kicked off in March in Glendale, Arizona, broke a record of the most tickets sold in a single day with over 2 million tickets sold. Combined, Swift’s net worth has skyrocketed by $170 million. That doesn’t include the cut she will receive off merchandise sales from 52 concert performances. As a result, the hit performer has increased her net worth more than any other female celebrity this year and climbed the ranks of the rankings of America’s Richest Self-Made Women.
Beyoncé Knowles won her 32nd Grammy this year for best dance/electronic music album, breaking the record for most Grammy wins of all time. The Queen took home four awards from the Grammys this year with the help of her new album, Renaissance, including best R&B song and two pre-show awards. She also released a couture collection for French fashion house Balmain before departing on her Renaissance World Tour.
Female celebrities in America are not only making names for themselves, but they are reaping the financial benefits from their brands. Breaking concert-attendance records, releasing hit albums, and winning awards, the female singer-songwriters are not done. They are living their best lives, and increasing their fame along with their fortune as they dominate the charts and pop culture.
Being on the Forbes List is another huge accomplishment for these talented female musicians.
