It's no secret Ariana Grande is a global pop star. The 25-year-old singer is currently four albums deep (with one on the way!), is a six-time Grammy nominee, and has an incredible fanbase by the name of Arianators. But how much is this talented woman worth?
According to Wealthy Gorilla, Grande has a net worth of $50 million. Let's take a look at how she's earned this incredible fortune.
The singer began her career in the spotlight when she landed the role of Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's Victorious, a part she played from 2010 to 2013. According to TMZ, she made $9,000 per episode for the first season alone. She then went on to reprise the role with Sam & Cat in 2013, which only lasted one season.
During her time on Victorious, Grande put her singing talent on display for the TV series' soundtrack, as well as continuing her experience in theater, something she started in 2008 with the Broadway musical 13. She was also very active on YouTube, where she uploaded singing videos under the name "osnapitzari."
Grande released her first song "Put Your Hearts Up" in 2011, although it was never put on an album. She also lent her voice to various animated projects, such as the TV series Winx Club.
By 2013, Grande released her first studio album Yours Truly, including impressive features from the likes of Big Sean and Mac Miller, both of whom she would go on to date. Besides her albums to come, My Everything (2014), Dangerous Woman (2016), and Sweetener (2018), the singer has released various EPs as well, such as her holiday project Christmas & Chill (2015). Along with music, Grande has done two world tours (The Honeymoon Tour and the Dangerous Woman Tour), with her third, Sweetener World Tour, beginning in March 2018.
The pop star has also featured on a number of tracks, such as "Get on Your Knees" by Nicki Minaj, "My Favorite Part" by Mac Miller, and "Quit" by Cashmere Cat.
Grande briefly returned to acting in 2015 for Fox's horror-comedy TV series Scream Queens, where she starred alongside Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Billie Lourd, and more.
Apart from her singing and acting career, Grande has done multiple endorsement deals and campaigns, such as with Rebook and Lipsy. Her perfume brand has also earned her a hefty fortune, with Refinery29 reporting it's grossed $150 million in retail sales across the world.
Grande has built herself a solid fanbase over the years, stemming from her talent, charm, and social media presence. With her next album, Thank U, Next, on the horizon, we expect the singer's net worth to grow exponentially within the few years.
