Wayne Coyne tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2017 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (December 5) that Coyne is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between November 2018 and November 2019, 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 American singer-guitarist 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 Coyne Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Pittsburgh Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercoyne - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Wayne) and a fashion line called “Wayne Coyne Seduction”.

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