‘I’m not just going to put music out because people are craving it. I’m going to make it worth the wait – and it will be worth the wait.’

It also came after Rihanna was announced as one of the latest additions to Forbes’ annual billionaires list.

The singer bolstered her net worth to $1.7 billion, due to her Fenty Beauty cosmetics line and her Savage Fenty lingerie line.

She became the first billionaire ever to hail from the small island country of Barbados.

It was previously claimed the bulk of her fortune ($1.4billion/£1billion) comes from her 50 percent stake in her cosmetics line Fenty Beauty – a joint venture with French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH – and worth $2.8billion (£2billion) in total.

Her $270million (£190million) stake in the wildly successful Savage X Fenty lingerie line and her wealth from her 16 year recording career all make up the mogul’s mass wealth.

The You Da One singer first put out her makeup line at Sephora, racking up sales eclipsing $100 million over the course of its first few weeks.

By the end of its first full calendar year in 2018, LVMH said the brand took home $550million (£394million) in annual revenues, trouncing celebrity cosmetics brands such as Kylie Cosmetics and KKW Beauty.

The high-end brand turned into a billion dollar business in less than four years, and with the launch of Fenty Skin last year, looks set to grow even further.

Fenty Skin had sales of $30million in under four months on its e-store, WWD reports.

Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty lingerie line, which she has a 30 per cent stake in, is also worth $1billion (£717million).

A second round of funding for the brand in February secured a whopping $115 million (£82.7 million) for Savage X Fenty, with L Catterton, a private equity firm that fashion house LVMH has a stake in, taking a percentage of the line.

Rihanna hasn’t released an album since 2016’s Anti, but she has appeared in films such as Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Ocean’s 8 and Guava Island.
