In 2018 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (October 28) that Bottum is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American musician 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 Bottum Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Los Angeles Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbottum - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Roddy) and a fashion line called “Roddy Bottum Seduction”.

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