Just how did Post Malone achieve a net worth of $14 million within three years in his career? Find out below.

Post Malone’s Net Worth

Malone’s journey to stardom, fame, and insane success all started when he was a kid. He got interested in music thanks to his father who had been a disc jockey in his youth and who introduced his son to different genres of music such as hip-hop, rock, and country. Then, he got interested in playing instruments, especially the guitar. The popular video game, Guitar Hero is to be credited for his guitar love.

He went a step further by teaching himself how to play the instrument by watching DIY videos online. He also joined a heavy metal rock band in his high school, Grape Vine High School, which marked his initial foray into professional music. In 2010, Post Malone auditioned for the band, Crown the Empire but failed to make the mark because his guitar strings broke on stage. He eventually transitioned to softer rock and hip-hop and began to experiment producing on FL Studio. Malone’s music style has been described as a melting point of R&B, country, hip-hop, and grunge.

When he was 16, Malone created his first mixtape titled Young & After Them Riches which he shared with his friends in school. They loved it and it, in turn, awarded him a little local popularity. In his senior year, his classmates voted him as Most Likely to Become Famous.

Post Malone announced his presence in the music industry with the release of his debut single in February 2015. He recorded the song titled White Iverson two days after he had finished writing it. It was met with rave success and brought Post to the attention of record labels, with Republic Records ultimately signing him later that year. He released the music video in July 2015 to even greater success and followed it up with his debut studio album, Stoney in December of the following year. The album was certified double platinum by the RIAA in October 2017.

Beerbongs & Bentleys (2018), his second studio album features guest appearances from Swae Lee, 21 Savage, Ty Dolla Sign, Nicki Minaj, G-Eazy, and YG. The album’s first single, Rockstar featuring 21 Savage amassed hundreds of millions of views online and peaked at number one on Billboard Hot 100 chart where it stayed for eight consecutive weeks. Additionally, the album broke Spotify streaming records with 78.7 million streams worldwide, securing Malone’s status as one of the most popular rising hip-hop acts of the streaming era. It was also certified platinum just four days after its release on April 27, 2018.

Malone may be relatively young in the music industry but he is quickly becoming a sensation. The hip-hop artiste may still be young but he has generated a large following among fellow celebrities and fans, and a fat bank account as well. As of the time of this writing, Post Malone’s net worth is a whopping $14 million which will no doubt appreciate rapidly in the coming years, going by his history so far.

How Did He Achieve A Net Worth of $14 Million

Post Malone is one of those few artists who hit the ground running with his very first release, White Iverson, which he uploaded it casually to his Soundcloud account. The kind of success he, however, saw with the release was beyond anything he has ever imagined. Since then, it has only been the beginning of good things and an upward spiral for him.

White Iverson reached number 14 on Billboard Hot 100 and went on to be certified as quadruple platinum. The song’s music video garnered over 300 million views on YouTube. Stoney, his first studio album, made it all the way to number 4 on the US Billboard 200. As if that was not enough, his sophomore album, Beerbongs & Bentleys peaked at number one on the Billboard 200.

He headlined his own tour in 2016; a 41-day project, making an average of $243,000 per show and earned $1 million, contributing to his total net worth. In 2017, his estimated salary and earnings from record sales and tours were over $7 Million. Malone now grosses half a million dollars per tour stop.

Post Malone’s musical and tour success, revenue earned from downloads have all now contributed to his amazing net worth of $14 million. He also earns from endorsement deals. This figure will continue to rise if he maintains the same level of popularity and continues to build his fan base.
