Rihanna, The Weeknd, Drake and More Grace Forbes’ ’30 Under 30′ List
According to Forbes, Rihanna earned $75 million within the calendar year (June 2015 to June 2016) thanks to signing deals with Dior and Samsung. Not to mention, her clothing brand with Puma is a mega-seller for the sneaker company.
The Weeknd is not too far behind as he raked in $55 million through his tours and Grammy-winning album, Beauty Behind the Madness. On a side note, the Canadian singer also joined Puma and is prepping to release his own sneaker and apparel line next year. Ka-ching!
However, fellow Canadian Drake is falling off a bit as he earned $38 million within the past year. However, his earnings is nothing to sneeze at, it's a nice cash flow. We are not sure if Forbes factored in the sales from his popular OVO x Jordan sneakers releases as well.
As for athletes gracing the list, NFL quarterback Cam Newton earned $53 million after signing a contract with the Carolina Panthers worth $103 million over five years. Cleveland Cavaliers player Kyrie Irving raked in $28.5 million and Olympic runner Usain Bolt earned $32.5 million.
