Justin Timberlake has had a long career in the American entertainment industry, starting as a member of a boyband, to a solo career and a career as an actor and producer. We took a closer look at how Justin Timberlake achieved his remarkable net worth below. Scroll down to check it out.

How Justin Timberlake Achieved his Net Worth

Justin Timberlake was born in Memphis, Tennessee on the 31st of January 1981 and after about a decade, he began his career in the music industry when he was discovered on the show, Star Search in 1991 and was recruited to become a part of the boy band, NSYNC. Since then, he has had a career that has spanned over two and half decades as a member of the group, a solo singer and an actor, accruing a net worth of $230 million in the process.

Through three different means – Music, Acting and Entrepreneurship, Justin Timberlake became a rich man and we took a closer look at each means below.

Music

Even though it is not the only thing responsible for his net worth, music is the number one and major source of Justin Timberlake’s net worth as well as his popularity and it all began with NSYNC.

Justin was one of the lead singers of the band and through it, he quickly became one of the most popular faces on television. The band released its first album in 1998, selling a total of 11 million copies, and their subsequent albums have gone on to sell over 60 million copies worldwide, making them one of the top five bestselling boy bands in history.

Combined with the income from album sales and the band’s global tours, which is estimated to have brought in over $110 million, Justin Timberlake had built a considerable amount of net worth through the band. However, if Justin Timberlake was already at the precipice of wealth through NSYNC, his solo career shot his net worth to the moon. Following the dissolution of NSYNC, he began a solo career that quickly transformed him into a global superstar.

His second solo album, Future Sex/Love Sounds, sold higher than his first, with almost five million copies in sales. So far, he has sold over 32 million albums and 56 million singles worldwide, all from five albums.

For the subsequent tours in promotion of his albums, Justin Timberlake has seen a considerable increase in his net worth, with at least two tours for Man of the Woods and The 20/20 Experience, earning over $200 million each in revenue. He also reportedly earned $20 million in a collaboration tour with Jay Z in 2009.

Acting
