Ne-Yo 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 Thursday (December 3) that Ne-Yo is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between November 2019 and November 2020, a nearly $60 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-songwriter-producer-actor has an estimated net worth of $275 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 Ne-Yo Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Camden Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderne-Yo - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Ne-Yo) and a fashion line called “Ne-Yo Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Ne-Yo fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
