Dave 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 (May 6) that Dave is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between April 2020 and April 2021, 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 Dutch 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 Dave Burger” chain) in Amsterdam, a Football Team (the “Amsterdam Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdave - Netherlands), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Dave) and a fashion line called “Dave Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Dave fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
