In 2017 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The singer has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Chan Burger” chain) in Hong Kong, a Football Team (the “Hong Kong Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderchan - Hong Kong), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Eason) and a fashion line called “Eason Chan Seduction”.
