Adele has earned 64837170 $(£35million) last year because of her hit album “25” and now her earnings shot up to $157461697 (£85 million). The singer, 27, is at the top of the list of richest performers aged 30 and under.
The singer has earned royalties which amount to 31492340 (£17 million) from her previous albums, “19” and “21.” Her latest album sold 20 million copies according to Mirror. Topping the rich list of performers in Ireland and Britain, Adele has been named in Sunday Times Rich List as the UK’s richest female musician ever.
She has been at the ninth position in the rich list chart in 2011 and reached the top in 2012, and the singer has never looked back since then, BBC reports. She has reached the top position, leaving behind singers like Sir Cliff Richard, Gary Barlow and Kylie Minogue.
Meanwhile, Sam Smith and Florence Welch’s net worth is $3704981 (£20 million). One Direction has become the youngest richest band with their combined income of $244528754 ( £132 million).

Adele had humble beginnings. She was raised by a single mom. Her father was a plumber. Adele said now it is time to give back. Adele even added that money does not matter to her and has given “a lot” to Great Ormond Street Hospital near where she lived with her mother.
Success seems to envelope the “Someone Like You” singer who earlier won four BRIT awards, making history by winning best female solo artist. Ian Coxon, who has been editing the Sunday Times Rich List for two consecutive decades said that the singer has an ever-growing fortune.
“Adele is only 27 so I would see her getting in the main list of the richest 1,000 in a couple of years – she is only £15 ($27795639) to £20m ($1910564929) away now,” he said.
