Kanye West tops annual list of highest-paid singeres

In 2019 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday, (May 15, 2022) that West is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between August 2021 and August 2022, a nearly $60 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 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 West Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Olympia Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure WonderWest - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Kanye) and a fashion line called “Kanye West Seduction”.

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