IObviously when you mention Rihanna or Beyoncé you are taking the names of two megastar pop divas who dominate the music industry today and continue to have significant influence outside of it as well. Rihanna and Beyoncé are two of the best known and most important hip-hop musicians who continue to be prominent outside of the music industry and their names cannot be confused with any other.
Both artists have made great strides in their professional careers, aiming high and managing to secure the highest positions available. Many people see the two as representations of power, courage, great talent, and inspiration. Which of these musicians, Rihanna or Beyoncé, is better known than the other is an intriguing subject. Let’s take a look at the stats and decide.
Rihanna and Beyoncé have regularly competed in one tournament or another, and their individual followers make that possible. Their success rate in the music industry is undeniable as it is obvious. Let’s see what social media can tell us about which of them is most liked.
The most popular platform for celebrity-fan interaction is Instagram. Therefore, let’s start the comparison there. Beyoncé has over 272 million followers, compared to Rihanna’s slightly modest 135 million followers. Looking at these pages reveals an interesting fact: Rihanna has actually posted more on Instagram than Beyoncé. Still, it seems like Beyoncé’s fans are always captivated by her, no matter how much she interacts with them. Compared to Beyoncé, who has just 15.6 million followers, Rihanna leads the pack with 106 million Twitter followers. With nearly 15 million more subscribers than Beyoncé, Rihanna is ranked 13e among the 50 most subscribed YouTube music artists. Beyoncé still retains a sizable following despite not even making the top 30 on the list.
Rihanna has officially become the richest musician in the world with a net worth of $1.7 billion, joining the Forbes list of billionaires. Currently, his net worth stands at $1.4 billion. It’s a remarkable feat, and Robyn Rihanna Fenty, 34, deserves it. Although her record sales do not entirely represent her net worth, they are an important source of income for her. With 215 million digital titles and 60 albums, Rihanna has sold 250 million records worldwide. She’s the best-selling digital artist of all time, according to a Billboard survey, and not just one of the most popular musicians overall.
Beyoncé has sold 100 million records worldwide, which puts her on the list of the world’s best-selling artists even though she hasn’t sold as many as Rihanna. Given that Rihanna met Beyoncé in the music industry much later, surpassing the latter in album sales is a surprising fact indeed. With a net worth of $500 million, Beyoncé, on the other hand, is still on the Forbes list of the richest musicians in the world.
Beyoncé and Rihanna have each received multiple accolades for their outstanding contributions to the music industry. To date, Beyoncé remains the singer with the most Grammy Awards in history with 28 wins to her name. She is also the ninth most honored performer in Billboard Music Awards history with 13 wins. On the other hand, with her nine Grammy Awards, 8 Billboard Music Awards, 13 American Music Awards and other distinctions, Rihanna demonstrates that she is a successful musician and at the top of her game. Both have won many other awards in addition to those already mentioned.
Conclusion – The ideal metrics to gauge an artist’s level of success and popularity may seem like record sales, number of accolades, and social media followers. But, everyone should remember that both musicians are setting records on a variety of fronts, and when it comes to the popularity debate; both are also successful in attracting female fans.
