Ariana Grande is known for her powerful vocals, high ponytail, and unending rivalry with Mariah Carey. But, has her music brought her any success?
Absolutely! Grande has a reported net worth of $35 million.
Ariana Grande released her first solo debut album in 2013 after having some success acting in theater and television roles. Yours Truly was received very well and “My Way,” the lead single from the album, even went triple platinum.
Grande’s career began in the theater. She was cast in various stage productions of shows like “The Wizard of Oz” and “Beauty and the Beast.” In 2009, Grande auditioned for a Nickelodeon TV show called Victorious and eventually was given the part of Cat Valentine.
The show began showcasing Grande’s real-life vocal skills and garnered the musician a broader audience. In 2010, upon the completion of the first season of Victorious, Grande began working on her first album.
This album launched Grande into the stardom she experiences today.
Yours Truly and Dangerous Woman have both been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and My Everything is certified double platinum.
That may not seem like a lot of music. After all, only three studio albums in the last 5 years is behind pace for many modern recording artists. But, Ariana has certainly not been short on the amount of music she has created.
Ariana has also released two Christmas Extended Play albums in addition to her studio music and five singles either from film soundtracks or an unannounced album. That is the case with “No Tears Left to Cry.” The single has been released but Grande has not yet provided details of the full album that it will appear on.
Grande also has been featured on tracks that have performed quite well. “Heatstroke” with Calvin Harris, “Faith” with Stevie Wonder, “Boys Like You” with Meaghan Trainor, and “Popular Song” with Mika are all certified Gold.
Ariana Grande has produced a number of chart-toppers and worked alongside some of the biggest musical acts of our time. Grande has become a pop culture icon outside of the music she makes.
Ariana Grande appeared on Saturday Night Live multiple times and has hosted the show on more than one occasion. In a particularly popular sketch for the show, Ariana Grande uses her impressive vocals to impersonate fellow pop divas Britney Spears, Shakira, Rihanna, Celine Dion, and even Whitney Houston.
The star has made a few other high-profile television appearances. In 2015, Grande appeared as a guest on the show Scream Queens and also made a cameo in Zoolander 2 the following year. In NBC’s production of Hairspray Live!, Grande appeared as Penny Pingleton, the confidante of Tracy Turnblad.
Grande’s touring career was brought to the world’s attention in 2017. Tragedy struck at Ariana Grande’s Manchester, England show on the Dangerous Woman tour. A bomber detonated a device at the entrance of the concert hall killing 22 and injuring 116.
Ariana Grande responded by organizing and performing in a benefit concert just 13 days later in Manchester. Ariana Grande performed alongside Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Liam Gallagher, Chris Martin, and Pharrell Williams. Grande met with survivors of the tragic attack and provided free entry for over 14,000 that were in attendance the night of the attack.
"I want to thank you so much for coming together and being strong," Grande said to the audience in attendance at the tribute show. "I love you guys so much, and I think the kind of love and unity you're displaying is the medicine the world needs right now."
Though few details are known about the singer’s ownership in homes, vehicles, and other assets, her wealth is on display in other areas of her life.
It is known that Ariana Grande has a residence in her hometown of Boca Raton, FL as well as an NYC apartment both valued at a little over $2 million, but the value of any Hollywood residences she may have is unknown.
Grande currently has the second most followed Instagram account and makes a decent amount of money through sponsorships and affiliate marketing on that platform. Ariana Grande was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in 2016 and as she continues her career, her influence on society will grow.
It will certainly be interesting to see how Ariana Grande’s career develops over the next several years because, as of right now, it shows no signs of stopping.
