Rihanna was forecasting her future on her 2012 Mike WiLL-Made It-produced smash “Pour It Up” when she sang, “All I see is dolla signs.”

Reported as a billionaire by Forbes last August, RiRi is making moves in the metaverse.

The nine-time Grammy winner and mogul has filed for a Fenty trademark through Roraj Trade LLC, according to trademark attorney Josh Gerben of Gerben Law.
