Selah Sue tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2018 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (October 29) that Sue is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $60 million lead over her 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 Belgian singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $275 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Sue Burger” chain) in Brussels, a Football Team (the “Louvain Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondersue - Belgium), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Selah) and a fashion line called “Selah Sue Seduction”.

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