Tricky tops annual list of highest-paid musicians

In 2020 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (June 2) that Tricky is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between May 2022 and May 2023, a nearly $50 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 musician-actor has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Tricky Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Bristol Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondertricky - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Tricky) and a fashion line called “Tricky Seduction”.

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