Welcome to Britain Rihanna – Umbrella star makes 2020 rich list


Londoner Rihanna has pipped Sir Elton John to third place on a new list of Britain’s richest musicians thanks to the success of her lingerie and cosmetics lines.

The Umbrella singer, who was born in Barbados but now lives in the U.K., raked in almost $576 million last year to land third place on the Sunday Times’ annual list of wealthy hitmakers, behind Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sir Paul McCartney, who share the top spot with $980 million apiece.

Elton comes in fourth place with a not-too-shabby $441,000 and Sir Mick Jagger rounds out the 2020 top five with $349 million.

Keith Richards and Ringo Starr also make the top 10, as do Sting, Ed Sheeran, and Sir Rod Stewart, who all tie for the 10th spot.
