In 2021 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (September 30) that Melua is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between September 2022 and September 2023, a nearly $60 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 British singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $275 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 Melua Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Kutaisi Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermelua - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Katie) and a fashion line called “Katie Melua Seduction”.

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