“Started from the bottom now we’re here.” This is the tagline of Zayn’s success story. Indeed, he went from being a simple guy living an ordinary life in Bradford to being one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
It is undeniable that Zayn has become a household name. And while his time in One Direction definitely had a role in that, the success of his solo career proves that all Zayn has to thank for is his ridiculously amazing talent (and good looks, too!)
Given his fame, many are curious to know just how rich Zayn Malik has become. After all, he’s in the big leagues now. It’s only logical to assume that he’s only going to accept big cheques from now on.
If you want to know Zayn Malik’s net worth, we’ve got you covered!
How Much Has Zayn Made As A Musician?
As you would expect, most of Zayn’s wealth is made off of his earnings as a musician. Now, if you want to find out how much Zayn earned from his singing career, we must include his 1D days into the equation.
Since the band had five members, they had to share the band’s revenue. Still, that shouldn’t be a problem as One Direction had no problem generating millions of dollars in sales from each tour alone. So, although they had to split, they still received a few million dollars.
In 2013, it was revealed by BBC that each member was paid $6.4million as their salary – that’s still excluding the band’s US income. This means that Zayn’s time in the band made him a multimillionaire.
While musicians – whether bands or solo artists – make money primarily out of doing shows and tours, Zayn hasn’t actually gone on one since he left the band.
He has cancelled on many live performances in the past due to his anxiety. Still, that doesn’t stop him from achieving commercial success. Here’s the total sales of each of his album so far:
- Mine of Mine (2016) – 200,000 sales
- Icarus Falls (2018) – 4,000 sales (US)
- Nobody is Listening (2021) – 4,000 sales (US)
What Are Zayn’s Other Sources of Income?
Aside from making music, Zayn also has a few sidelines. He does modelling, painting (although it’s more of a hobby than a business), and brand endorsements. Unfortunately, companies typically do not disclose how much they pay artists to endorse their products.
But, since we’re talking about Zayn Malik, we’d assume that it’s somewhere between a couple hundred grands to a million dollars. Here are all the brands Zayn has collaborated with:
- Giuseppe Zanotti
- The Kooples
As you can see, these are pretty big brands!
Zayn’s Cars and Properties
With a multi-million fortune like Zayn has, it’s not a surprise that he’s going to spend it on lavish things such as cars and mansions. According to reports, Zayn has a pretty expensive car collection. Take a look at the list below:
- Bentley Continental GT – $250,000
- Black Porche Cayenne – $100,000
- Black Audi R8 – $200,000

- Black Range Rover – $140,000
- Black Mercedes – $50,000

What is Zayn Malik’s Net Worth?
Are you ready for the ultimate reveal? Drum roll please…
With everything calculated, it is estimated that Zayn Malik’s net worth is around $70million, making him the second highest-earning member of One Direction.
Some of you may be surprised as to how he hasn’t grown that into a nine-digit figure by now, but Zayn has been very low-key in terms of his music.
He’s just been making covers and mixtapes, probably because he’s got a lot on his plate right now with all the in-law dramas and adjustments to parenthood. Still, it’s a pretty impressive net worth.
