AceShowbiz - Ariana Grande is among the biggest celebrity entrepreneurs in 2022. According to a new report, the "Thank U, Next" hitmaker's fragrance line has officially surpassed $1 billion in global retail sales.
The perfume line has done more than $1 billion in global retail sales to date, per The Hollywood Reporter. The earliest edition was created in 2015 and the newest is from 2021. As of this writing, the 29-year-old actress/singer has 11 perfumes under her name, including, "Ari", "Frankie", "God Is a Woman", "Moonlight", "R.E.M.", "Sweet Like Candy", "Sweet Like Candy Limited Edition", "Thank U, Next", "Thank U, Next 2.0", "Cloud" and "Cloud Intense".
Aside from her perfume line's success, the pop star's r.e.m. beauty was a quick sell-out success when it launched in November 2021. By April this year, r.e.m. beauty had a retail partnership with Ulta Beauty for more than 1,000 stores.
More recently, Ariana teased her fans that she will be releasing her first-ever fragrance duo, Mod Blush and Mod Vanilla. On Sunday, November 20, the Glinda the Good Witch depicter in "Wicked" dropped a commercial for her upcoming perfume that will be available at Ulta Beauty on Thursday, December 1.
Ariana, who has an estimated net worth of a whopping $220 million, started in the industry as a Broadway actor and a television star long before she became successful in the music scene. Her career started to take off after starring on several Nickelodeon shows like "Victorious" and "Sam & Cat". She then released her debut album titled "Yours Truly" in 2013 featuring hit songs like "The Way," "Baby I", "Daydreamin' " and many more.
Before releasing her first album, she debuted a single "Put Your Hearts Up" but she wasn't too happy with the song and music video even though it kick-started her music career. "That was the worst moment of my life. For the video, they gave me a bad spray tan and put me in a princess dress and had me frolic around the street. The whole thing was straight out of hell," she explained. She even admitted that she made her team hide the music video from her official YouTube channel.
