The Crunch: The Richest Pop Stars Under 30

00:48

The Sunday Times Music Rich List has been revealed for 2015 – find out who the wealthiest stars under 30 and overall are.

It’s always a fun time of year when the Rich List is revealed – IMAGINE having £730million to play with?! – and it’s no surprise who’s topping the under 30s poll… 

Find out what 17 of the world's biggest artists earn per SECOND

Adele has reigned supreme on the top of the under 30s list for the past few years with a whopping £50million pound fortune – double the £25million each of the One Direction boys (including Zayn Malik) have to their name.

1D shared the second place spot five ways, closely followed by Ed Sheeran at number 7 with a huge £20million. Ed famously said that he stops himself blowing all his cash by giving himself a monthly allowance – savvy!

Sam Smith is the only new entry in the under 30s list, popping straight in at number 14 with an estimated fortune of £12million - not bad for his first full year in pop!

Topping the list of musicians overall is Paul McCartney with an incredible £730million in the bank (£20million more than he had last year) – how do you even begin to spend all that?!

Calvin Harris made it onto the main poll in the 30th place spot with his fortune of £70million – beating Take That’s Gary Barlow by £5million. Lend us a tenner, Calv?
