What Is Adele’s Net Worth Now, Years After Rolling in The Deep Release?

When news broke that Adele’s marriage was over, fans of the superstar singer broke into excitement, not out of malice, but because in the music industry, breakups are usually a great inspiration for music and very few people are better at creating great music from them than the English singer. In fact, this ability is part of the reasons Adele’s net worth has soared with the release of every album since she began her career in 2006.

Adele has released three albums since she became a professional musician in 2006. Rolling in the Deep is one of the singles from her second album, 21. Being one of her biggest songs ever, it has sold over 20.6 million copies worldwide, contributing in no small manner to her humongous net worth. Take a look at Adele’s net worth below, especially since she released the record-breaking single.

Adele’s Net Worth and How She Made It 

The world knows her as Adele, but her full name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins and she has a net worth of $190 million. She started her career as a teenager, having grown up in Tottenham, London under the care of her parents, Penny Adkins and Marc Evans, although the latter left when she was two. She had been singing at the age of four and at the age of 17 in 2006, she became a professional musician when a demo song posted on Myspace led her to a recording contract with XL Recordings.

Adele released her first album, 19, in 2008, starting a norm of naming her album after her age in their year of release. Her first album charted songs like Chasing Pavements and Make You Feel My Love; it was an overall critical and commercial success.

19 sold over 7 million copies worldwide and earned her two Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. The success of the album gave Adele a net worth of $10 million in 2008. She earned a further $5 million each in 2009 and 2010 before the release of her second album, 21, gave her a huge commercial breakthrough.

21 was released in 2011, and along with it came singles like Rolling in the Deep, Someone like You, and Set Fire to the Rain; all of which were international number one songs. Rolling in the Deep, in particular, sold over 20.6 million copies worldwide.

The album itself was a commercial behemoth and a major contributor to Adele’s net worth. It became the best-selling album in the 21st century in the United Kingdom and the fourth bestselling album of all time. The album has sold over 31 million copies worldwide.

As a result, there was a significant boost in Adele’s yearly earnings, with the English singer recording $15 million in earnings in 2011, and a total of $118 million between 2012 and 2014. In 2014, she earned $70 million.

Her third album, 25, was released in 2015 and continued in the commercial stride of its predecessors, with the lead single, Hello, selling over one million copies in the US within its first week alone. The album itself has sold over 22 million copies worldwide, placing it among the best-selling records in history. The album was one of the top-selling albums in several major music markets across the world.

It is no wonder that in the year of its release, she raked in $60 million in earnings. Additionally, she made $80 million from the Adele Live 2016 Tour that followed.

Her Earnings Since The Release of Rolling In The Deep

In the following years, the musician recorded a total of $90 million in earnings, bringing the total amount of her career earnings since the release of Rolling in the Deep in 2011 to $348 million.

While it is difficult to determine the exact figure of her career earnings that has gone to taxes, managers, agents, and what have you, it is believed that Adele made over 50% of her net worth since she released the internationally acclaimed single.

Today, the Tottenham-born singer has a net worth of $190 million and with other major offers being dangled in her face, such as the £22 million one-year offer for a residency in Las Vegas which can fetch her £380,000 per show, her net worth is bound to continue to soar.

Combined with the possible release of her fourth album, 30, in December 2019, Adele is certainly going to be worth a whole lot more in the near future.

Other than her albums and tours, Adele has also earned money through her song, Skyfall, which was written for the James Bond film, Skyfall. Not only was the success of the song a contributor to her net worth, but it also fetched her an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, and a Golden Globe award.
