As one of the most promising musicians in our time, Olivia Rodrigo is definitely seeing some favorable changes in her net worth.
Her first debut studio album Sour alone made millions, and her main roles in Disney shows such as Bizaardvark and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series certainly gave her a six-figure salary.
For a 19-year-old, her accomplishments as a singer and actress are beyond impressive. This led many to wonder whether Olivia Rodrigo has made herself a millionaire already. If you’re interested to know how much money the young American popstar actually makes, keep reading!
How Much Money Does Olivia Rodrigo Make From Singing?
Olivia Rodrigo’s rise to stardom is something not a lot of artists can pull off. She went from being just another Disney child star to one of the biggest and most-respected singer/songwriter in the industry. With that said, it’s not surprising to see her raking up millions of dollars from her songs and album.
Most artists make money out of touring. Since Olivia has yet to embark on one – her first world tour is set to start this April, 2022 – it seems that much of Olivia’s fortune is from her album sales and Spotify streams.
Luckily, we do have the exact figures of how much artists make per stream on Spotify. According to one study, artists earn $0.003 per stream on average. Now, here’s a list of how many streams each of Olivia’s tracks made on Spotify:
- Driver’s License – 1.3 billion streams
- Good 4 U – 1.3 billion streams
- Deja Vu – 768 million streams
- Traitor – 683 million streams
- Happier – 463 million streams
- Favorite Crime – 388 million streams
- Jealousy, Jealousy – 284 million streams
- Brutal – 235 million streams
- Enough For You – 139 million streams
- 1 step forward, 3 steps back – 115 million streams
- All I Want – 94 million streams
- Hope Ur Ok – 85 million streams
So, if we do the math, that means that her hit song Driver’s License alone made $3.9million. Of course, that doesn’t mean that every penny of that goes straight to Olivia’s pocket.
However, a pay-out as big as that means that Olivia might have taken home a few million bucks from her entire album streams on Spotify.
As for her album sales, Olivia still keeps on slayin’ with 2.8million units sold worldwide. This made Sour the biggest album of 2021 by a female artist. Unfortunately, it is unknown how much her album grossed in earnings, but we do know that it must have made at least a million dollars.
Olivia reportedly paid $1.2million in royalties to the rock band Paramore after she gave them writing credits to her song Good 4 U. She wouldn’t be able to afford paying that much money to the group had she not made millions, right?
How Much Money Does Olivia Rodrigo Make From Acting?
Before the release of her record-breaking album Sour, Olivia Rodrigo was better known as a Disney star for her roles in Bizaardvark and HSMTMTS.
She was especially famous for her involvement in the latter, as that was the series where she met Joshua Bassett – the rumored ex-lover who inspired her to write Driver’s License.
Now, her exact salary from her Disney roles are not known to the public. However, based on the $375k salary of her Bizaardvark co-star and ex-lover Ethan Wacker, we’re pretty confident that she made at least $500k from the series.
Ethan had a relatively minor role in the show, while Olivia played a main character. With that said, it’s only logical for us to assume that Olivia was paid more than Ethan.
What is Olivia Rodrigo’s Net Worth?
Given her million-dollar pay-out from Spotify and a six-figure salary from her acting roles, it is estimated that Olivia Rodrigo’s net worth is $5million.
Of course, that’s only going to go up from here. Olivia’s world tour is about to start a few months from now, with tickets priced at around $150. Once that kicks off, that $5million net worth is going to be just a thing of the past for Olivia.
Plus, she’s only 19 years old. Olivia still has so much to do with her music career – and we can’t wait to hear her next album!
