Paul McCartney tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2021 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (May 22) that McCartney is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between April 2023 and April 2024, a nearly $30 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 British singer-musician-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $185 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 McCartney Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Liverpool Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure WondermcCartney - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Paul) and a fashion line called “Paul McCartney Seduction”.

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