Bruno Mars’ Net Worth: How Much Money Does The Musician Make Now?

Since Bruno Mars announced himself to the world in 2010 when he released his first single, Just the Way You Are, it has been a steady climb to the top for the musician who has quickly risen to become one of the best-selling music artists of all time within a decade. As more people bought his singles and albums, Bruno Mars’ net worth increased.

Today, he is one of the richest pop singers in the world, with just a couple albums to his name. A combination of his music sales, repeatedly sold-out shows, and his business investments have ensured that the Hawaii-born musician’s days of poverty is a distant memory. Take a look at Bruno Mars’ wealth as well as how he made his fortune below.

Bruno Mars’ Net Worth

According to various sources, Bruno Mars has a net worth of $175 million, all of which he amassed in just over a decade as a professional musician after becoming one in 2004 and releasing his first album less than a decade thereafter.

Mars’ net worth is a far cry from a childhood that saw him live in the back of a car, in an abandoned bird zoo, and on rooftops. He had fallen into poverty after his parents who made money through their band, The Love Notes, got divorced, causing him to live with his father with a lack of a steady source of income.

This remained the case for a long time in Bruno Mars’ life until he relocated to Los Angeles from Hawaii to begin his music career. Despite some interests in his talent and music, Bruno was unable to secure a contract that produced steady income, with his inconsistent income coming via his band, Sex Panther, which played cover songs around Los Angeles.

Bruno was about to give up and return to his home state when a call from Brandon Creed, who later became his manager, offered him a chance to buy one of his songs for $20,000. It was the first major money Bruno Mars earned as a musician and it allowed him to remain in Los Angeles in pursuit of a career thereof.

His extended stay in Los Angeles helped to grow his career as a songwriter and as well as his net worth as he wrote songs for prominent musicians like Alexandra Burke, Brandy, Adam Levine, and a few others.

The more he wrote songs which went on to chart on Billboard, the more money he made and eventually, he was signed to Atlantic Records. This saw his release his first project, an EP titled It’s Better If You Don’t Understand which peaked at number 99 on Billboard 200. It became the first commercial achievement of Bruno Mars as a solo artist.

It sold 55,000 copies in its first week and went on to sell over five million copies worldwide, transforming Bruno Mars into an international star and also serving as a significant boost to his net worth.
