Ariana Grande Net Worth: $50M

  • Best Pop Vocal Album – “Sweetener”

The pint-sized songstress picked up her first Grammy Award on Sunday night, but before she won one of music’s highest honors, she’s been rolling in dough. Grande is worth an estimated $50 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Next month, Grande’s “Sweetener” world tour kicks off, and based on the $71 million pulled in from her previous “Dangerous Woman” tour, Grande’s fortune will get even more, well, grande.

It was a historical night at the Grammys for Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover. Although Glover wasn’t present to accept his award — his noticeable absence is speculated to be associated with last year’s Academy snub of Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar — Glover is the first artist to win awards for both song and record of the year for “The Is America.” His income streams all tally up to an estimated $12 million net worth, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
