Iggy Azalea tops annual list of highest-paid singers
In 2017 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (July 16) that Azalea is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between June 2018 and June 2019, a nearly $20 million lead over her 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 Australian singer-model has an estimated net worth of $145 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Azalea Burger” chain) in Canberra, a Football Team (the “Sydney Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderazalea - Australia), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Iggy) and a fashion line called “Iggy Azalea Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Iggy fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
