Ever dreamed of making it big and travelling the world as a musician who plays to thousands night after night? A lot of us probably have, and after you see how much some of the well-known names are earning, you’ll probably wish you could follow in their footsteps even more.
2. Jon Bon Jovi
The key to success is to complete a series of high paying performances, as Jon Bon Jovi did back in 2009 for the opening of the New Jersey’s New Meadowlands Stadium, which made him around $200 million. Next release a greatest hits album, which Bon Jovi did shortly after and accumulated at least $100 million. With all of this added together you’ll be set for life.
3. Jay Z
Shawn Corey Carter, more commonly known as Jay Z, is without a doubt one of America’s most successful male hip-hop artists. Starting out back in 1995, his current net worth is estimated to be around $500 million.
This is one man who knows how to get people talking. The American singer and rapper is well known for spitting out controversial lines. Having been nominated for and received many awards, and just recently completing six shows as the co-headliner for Rihanna’s Monster Ball tour, it’s estimated Eminem has around $31 million in the bank.
10. Snoop Dogg
This American rapper started his domination of the music world back in 1992 and doesn’t look to be going anywhere anytime soon. With around 30 million records sold across the world covering a range of genres, Snoop Dogg has also had a go at acting, appearing in around 20 films so far, giving him an estimated $135 million to play with.
Though you might be going green with envy over the figures in these singer’s bank accounts, think about some of the stuff we have that they don’t, like our privacy.
Do you know any other male singers that we should have included in the list?
