In 2016 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

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-musician has an estimated net worth of $185 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 D'Angelo Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Richmond Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderd'Angelo - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from D'Angelo) and a fashion line called “D'Angelo Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many D'Angelo fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
