Forbes: P. Diddy Dethroned, Here’s Now the Richest Singer in the United States in 2018

Jay-Z is America’s richest singer, according to an update of Forbes’ annual ranking on celebrity wealth.

Ranked 5 th position behind George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jordan, with a net worth of 900 million, the hip-hop star beat the other musicians appearing in the rankings.

Through his stints in various companies, including entertainment giant Roc Nation, his streaming service Tidal, and alcohol companies including Armand de Brignac and D’Ussé, he took the place occupied by rapper Diddy.

Star Wars creator George Lucas, who sold Lucasfilm to Disney in 2012, helped grow his own wealth by transforming the original film trilogy into an empire of merchandise, interactive games, novels and comics. George Lucas’s net worth is estimated at about $ 5.4 billion, more than $ 1 billion more than Spielberg’s.

Rolling Stone notes that Jay-Z may be struggling to keep his crown of richest musician because Dr Dre would have had an estimated net worth of $ 770 million earlier this year. This figure probably climbed after his departure from Apple earlier this year.
