Francis Cabrel tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2017 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (February 16) that Cabrel is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between January 2019 and January 2020, a nearly $20 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 French singer-songwriter-guitarist 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 Cabrel Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Agen Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercabrel - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Francis) and a fashion line called “Francis Cabrel Seduction”.

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