Johnny Gill tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2014 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (March 30) that Gill is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between March 2016 and March 2017, a nearly $40 million lead over his 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-songwriter-actor has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Gill Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Washington, D.C. Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergill - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Johnny) and a fashion line called “Johnny Gill Seduction”.

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