Who says you can’t have it all? For women musicians who also run their own businesses — such as multi-hyphenates Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Beyoncé and more — the title of “CEO” is just as important as “pop star.”

The past few years have seen a boom in woman-led businesses, within the music industry and beyond. Nowadays, it’s both common and celebrated for a chart-topping female artist to helm an enterprise on top of their music careers, be it in beauty, health, food, fashion or — in the case of a certain ambitious country legend — theme parks.

These junctures give artists an added outlet for the creativity and hard work that made them stars in the first place. And, when successful, they provide a more long-lasting way for musicians to ensure that their legacies continue on for generations to come.

In honor of Billboard‘s annual Women in Music celebrations — which this year culminate in a March 6 ceremony presented by Marriott Bonvoy, where Karol G, Charli XCX, Ice Spice and more women artists will receive awards — we’re rounding up some of the world’s biggest women musician-turned-moguls. The ladies on this list have developed trusted brand names, overseen global campaigns and sat at the heads of many a conference table, with several of them raking in millions in the process. In some cases, you may even realize that you’ve already picked up one of their products without knowing that a celebrity was behind it.

Prepare to be in awe of the hard work these women have put in. And, without further ado, keep reading to see 30 women musicians who hold down their own businesses below.
