Brian Johnson tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2018 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (January 14) that Johnson is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between December 2019 and December 2020, 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 British singer 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 Johnson Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Gateshead Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderjohnson - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Brian) and a fashion line called “Brian Johnson Seduction”.

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