Marlon Jackson 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 Friday (February 26) that Jackson is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between January 2020 and January 2021, 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 American singer 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 Jackson Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Gary Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderjackson - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Marlon) and a fashion line called “Marlon Jackson Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Marlon fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
