Ariana Grande’s Wealth Continues To Grow: A Look at Her Net Worth
In 2008, Ariana Grande made her debut in the Broadway show “13,” playing a cheerleader named Charlotte. Buoyed by her success — she won a National Youth Theater Association Award — she starred on TV and eventually began working on her own music (featuring artists like Mac Miller). In 2013, she released her first album, “Yours Truly,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200. According to Celebrity Net Worth, that album sold between 100,000 and 120,000 copies in the first week of its release.

Grande followed up her first album with a sophomore release, “My Everything,” a year later in 2014. The two albums sold more than 2 million copies worldwide.

In 2019, two of Grande’s albums reached No. 1 within six months of one another: “Sweetener” and “Thank U, Next.” That year was a major moneymaker for her as she became the youngest female artist to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, where she is said to have earned $8 million.

Grande has been able to pay for luxurious living spaces with her immense earnings. She currently rents in a 6,000-square-foot home in Beverly Hills, California, with a view of the Hollywood Hills and a pool and hot tub.
