Mariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, producer, entrepreneur, actress and arguably one of the largest household names of recent times.
Carey is most famous for producing one of the biggest Christmas hits of all time - “All I want for Christmas is You”. This song has become one of the best-selling and most profitable singles of all time with global sales having reached 16 million - a number that will undoubtedly continue to rise year on year. Reportedly, the song only took 15 minutes to write, but that certainly hasn't stopped the record achieving monumental levels of success.
Carey has much more than just Christmas hits in her repertoire and her other albums have amassed over 200 million collective sales worldwide. Mariah’s self-titled debut album, released in 1990, went on to be certified 9x platinum in the US alone. Her album released in 1993 titled ‘Music Box’ went on to be one of the best-selling albums of all time, selling a staggering 28 million copies worldwide and spending an unprecedented 128 weeks on the Billboard Chart.
Over the course of her time in the music industry, Carey has won five Grammys, ten AMAs and 15 Billboard Music Awards.
With this glittering success Carey has boasted throughout her long career, what is her net worth now in 2022?
Mariah Carey Net Worth 2022:
According to Celebritynetworth, Mariah Carey’s net worth sits at a seriously outstanding figure of $320 million.
This comes as no surprise when considering the fact that Carey is the second best-selling female artist of all time, behind only Madonna. She is also one of the 15 best-selling musical artists in history having sold over 200 million albums worldwide.
Outside of music, Carey has been involved in impressive deals that have helped to boost her net worth to where it is today. In 2012, she earned $18 million to appear on one season of American Idol. Then in 2015 she signed a $30 million contract to undertake a two-year residency in Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
Whilst Carey may only be searching for love next Christmas, a lot of people certainly wouldn’t say no to a nine figure net worth from Santa Claus.
