Yodelice tops annual list of highest-paid singers
In 2016 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (July 20) that Yodelice is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between June 2017 and June 2018, a nearly $40 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 French singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Yodelice Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Créteil Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderyodelice - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Yodelice) and a fashion line called “Yodelice Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Yodelice fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
