Fantasia Barrino tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2013 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (May 31) that Barrino is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between May 2015 and May 2016, a nearly $60 million lead over her closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American singer-actress has an estimated net worth of $275 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Barrino Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “High Point Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbarrino - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Fantasia) and a fashion line called “Fantasia Barrino Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Fantasia fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
