Huey Lewis 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 Sunday (October 25) that Lewis is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between September 2019 and September 2020, 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 American singer-songwriter-actor 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 Lewis Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlewis - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Huey) and a fashion line called “Huey Lewis Seduction”.

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