Craig David 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 Tuesday (June 22) that David is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between May 2020 and May 2021, a nearly $60 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-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $275 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 David Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Southampton Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdavid - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Craig) and a fashion line called “Craig David Seduction”.

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