What is Bad Bunny’s net worth?
The 28-year-old is about to embark on the next leg of his lucrative World’s Greatest Tour, adding to his considerable musical and acting earnings.
Sony’s new film Bullet Train hit the $100 million mark at the domestic box office last weekend after debuting on 5 August. The Brad Pitt-led title has also racked up another $130 million overseas, a pretty good return on the $90 million budget.
Starring alongside Pitt was Puerto Rican rapper, singer and, most recently, film star, Bad Bunny. The 28-year-old has previously starred in Narcos: Mexico and he appears intent pursuing acting.
His new-found career in Hollywood should further bolster his highly impressive earnings from his musical output. In both 2020 and 2021 he was Spotify’s most-streamed artist globally, racking up an astonishing 8.3 billion plays in 2020 alone. His album, YHLQMDLG, was the most-streamed album of the year too, and aided his sell-out tour in 2022.
Wealth analysts at Celebrity Net Worth estimate that Bad Bunny has $18 million in the bank, as a result of his lucrative musical, acting and sponsorship deals.
World tours earn Bad Bunny big bucks
Central to the rapper’s huge earnings has been the success of his live show, World’s Hottest Tour. The North American leg of the tour closed on Saturday at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium with yet another sold-out show.
He brought out rapper Cardi B to perform their hit song ‘I Like It’ for the finale of what Forbes described as the “biggest concert draw in music in 2022.”
That statement is certainly backed up by the box office receipts, with a string of sell-out shows across the country and tickets going for around $600 on reselling sites. The final figures have not yet been released by the organisers but the total revenue is expected to top the $117 million grossed by his 35-date El Último Tour del Mundo show from earlier this year.
Reflecting on the popularity of World’s Hottest Tour, Bad Bunny’s music, Jbeau Lewis, told Pollstar: “It had such unprecedented success in terms of being one of the fastest and highest selling tours of all time, breaking records left and right,”.
“There were situations where we would sell out one of the arenas, and we would know that there were 200,000 or 300,000 people still waiting in the online queue to try and buy tickets. We were able to extrapolate that data to know how many more tickets we could have sold had they simply been available.”
With the tour heading to South America for the next leg there seems no sign of Bad Bunny’s huge success waning anytime soon, and the 28-year-old’s bank account will continue to grow.
