Pharrell Williams 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 (September 27) that Williams is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between August 2022 and August 2023, 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-songwriter-rapper-producer-fashion designer 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 Williams Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Virginia Beach Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwilliams - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Pharrell) and a fashion line called “Pharrell Williams Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Pharrell fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
