Here are some of the houses of the 2011 top Black Grammy nominees.

Below you will see Usher, Eminem, Rihanna, Jay-Z & Beyonce.

Rihanna’s mansion

In September 2009, Rihanna cashed in on her rapidly accumulated success by dropping $6.9 million on a stunning house in the star-studded hills of 90210 — quite a drop from the original listing price of $9,995,000.  Located on a bluff offering 270-degree city and mountain views, Rihanna’s Beverly Hills house features 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, living and dining areas with 30-ft ceilings, a sauna, library, theater room, pool, spa, and countless decks and balconies.

Beyonce and Jay-Z’s mansion

Up until March 2010, the high-profile couple shared their rich and famous life in a gorgeous Mediterranean mansion located on a waterfront, 1.23-acre lot on the private Indian Creek Island in Florida. In addition to 118 feet of private waterfront and a boat launch (or should we say yacht launch), Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s former home (pictured above) is 7,888 sq ft and features 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. Public records show the home sold for $9.3 million. Nothing has been confirmed as to where the untouchable couple will reside next. What has been confirmed, however, is that the Grammy-winning couple is expecting their first child — perhaps the reason that sparked a move into a more family friendly neighborhood.  There have only been rumors surrounding where Beyoncé and her man plan to settle down. The pair has reportedly been considering a property in Schuylkill County, PA (see listing photos here) and possibly building in Scarsdale, NY. Whatever their final decision is, they are doing a great job of keeping it under the radar.

Usher’s mansion

Much like his musical colleagues on this list, Usher already has numerous awards under his belt, including 5 Grammy Awards. Usher stores his ever-rowing list of awards and achievements in a 12,544-sq ft mansion in Roswell, GA. Usher’s house sits on a secluded 4.25-acres and features a massive 6-bedroom, 7-bathroom main house. Public records show he purchased the house in 2007 for $3,040,000. According to the NY Post, the Dallas-born star has also been house hunting in Manhattan. Could Usher be trading in his Southern comfort for a penthouse in sky?
