The Weeknd has released his fifth studio album 'Dawn FM' and is set to add more figures to his impressive net worth - so how much is the singer worth?
The Weeknd, 31, has spent almost ten years releasing new music to his adoring fans, and with that kind of tuneful talent comes an impressive net worth to match.
So how much is The Weeknd’s net worth? And how did Abel Tesfaye (his real name) make himself such a fortune aside from his success in the charts and on stage?
Here’s a complete breakdown of The Weeknd’s career and earnings:
It will come as no surprise to hear the 'Blinding Lights' star – who is just as famous for his celebrity exes including Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez – is worth around $80-$100million US dollars – that’s approximately £59million to £74million.
The Weeknd has regularly featured in Forbes’ top earner lists, with him being named the sixth highest paid entertainer in 2017. This was the year he broke music records with his 'Starboy' album which reportedly made him around $1.1million per stop on his album tour.
Music has been Bella Hadid’s ex’s main source of income as he’s been making top tunes for around a decade.
'Starlight', 'Beauty Behind the Madness' and 'After Hours' have all been huge successes for him.
Album sales and tour dates aside, The Weeknd has also been making money producing in a studio and is also the co-founder of XO record label.
Away from music, the 31 year old has put his name and face to plenty of sponsorship and collaboration deals including H&M and Puma. He also partnered with Marvel.
