Jay-Z Is America's Richest Musician

Believe it or not, there is so much money in the music industry. When it comes to trying to figure out who runs the game in being the richest artist, Jay-Z (husband to the legendary Beyonce) is a household name, among many. But this time, he has risen to become to fifth-richest figure on the magazine’s annual ranking of celebrity wealth in America––the wealthiest musician on the list.

He briefly follows George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Michael Jordan, and he stands with a net worth of US $900M. This number is based off of published earnings, private stakes, publicly traded assets as well as lifetime earnings.

Jay-Z’s stakes in various companies including entertainment giant Roc Nation, streaming service Tidal, and liquor companies Armand de Brignac and D’Usse. He surpassed the previous top music spot holder, fellow rapper Diddy. There are speculations that Jay-Z may not hold the spot for long, as Dr. Dre follows not too far behind after his stock-rich exit from Apple this fall.

 

Here is a list of America’s wealthiest celebrities of 2018.

1. George Lucas (net worth $5.4 billion)
2. Steven Spielberg ($3.7 billion)
3. Oprah Winfrey ($2.8 billion)
4. Michael Jordan ($1.7 billion)
