Singer Rihanna found love – and reportedly a big pay day – in India.

The musician, who has built her own billion dollar empire as a musician and business owner, was allegedly paid upwards of $6 million to perform at the pre-wedding festivities for Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s youngest son, Anant, per multiple reports. The richest man in Asia, Ambani is the 9th wealthiest person in the world according to Forbes.

Video shared to social media showed the Barbadian singer performing some of her top hits, including “Pour It Up,” and “B—h Better Have My Money” to a massive crowd.

The guest list for the multi-day bash in Jamnagar, India was nearly 1200 people. 

RIhanna’s appearance holds significance, as the 36-year-old has shifted away from the music industry for the better part of the last decade. 

Her last studio album, “Anti,” was released in 2016, and before her Super Bowl LVII halftime show in 2023, Rihanna hadn’t performed live on-stage since 2018.
