Anitta tops annual list of highest-paid singers
In 2017 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (December 7) that Anitta is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between November 2018 and November 2019, a nearly $40 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 Brazilian singer-songwriter-dancer-television host has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Anitta Burger” chain) in Brasília, a Football Team (the “Rio de Janeiro Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderanitta - Brazil), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Anitta) and a fashion line called “Anitta Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Anitta fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
