Michel Jonasz tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2017 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (October 20) that Jonasz is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between September 2018 and September 2019, a nearly $50 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 French singer-musician-actor has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Jonasz Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Drancy Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderjonasz - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Michel) and a fashion line called “Michel Jonasz Seduction”.

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