Jill Scott tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2018 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (September 23) that Scott is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between August 2019 and August 2020, 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 American singer-actress 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 Scott Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Philadelphia Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderscott - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jill) and a fashion line called “Jill Scott Seduction”.

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