It will never be the same again – at least not for Harry Styles’ bank account. Since bursting onto the scene in the late 2000s, Styles has reinvented itself time and time again. He started as a bandmate, then pursued a career as a soloist. He went on to become a movie star, further proving that Styles underwent major transformations while in the public eye (but be careful about calling him the “new King of Pop”). More recently, he has been the focus of the much-talked-about film don’t worry darling directed by Olivia Wilde (who also happens to be his girlfriend).
In addition to appearing in the center of the frame, he also began dabbling behind the scenes as a rising producer. With his hands in many different pies, he has secured several major revenue streams that tap into his creativity. Here’s a look at some of the projects that have brought in his fortune and what the star is worth.
5 Ways Harry Styles Made Millions
Styles is first and foremost a musician, and his mother is the real reason for his rise to fame: she first encouraged him to audition for The X factor. He originally auditioned as a solo contestant before being grouped with future bandmates Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik. One Direction was formed, and the group eventually finished in third place in the series.
But it’s no secret that One Direction exploded globally soon after. X factor Judge Simon Cowell reportedly signed the boy band to his Syco Music Records label to a $2.4 million deal in January 2011. Five albums later in 2015, when Styles was just 22, the net worth of the group had climbed to 130 million dollars according to Forbes. At the height of their stardom in 2014, they walked away with $280,000 a day. Styles also has the highest net worth of the One Direction members. Zayn Malik has a net worth of $75 million, while Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson are each worth $70 million.
Shortly after, Styles embarked on a solo career when One Direction went on hiatus in 2016 and Styles’ bank account blew up when he went out on his own. Through his label Erskine Records, the 2020 sales figures attached to Styles were recorded at $44.9 million. His album 2019 Thin line sold 478,000 units in its first week and was later certified Platinum. The 2022 version Harry’s house debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart with over 521,500 sold in its first week. The album spawned four simultaneous top 10 hits, making him the first British act since the Beatles to achieve this.
According to Sunday Times’ Rich List, Styles is the richest British musician under 30 ahead of artists like Dua Lipa and Little Mix.
Following his solo debut centered on the single “Sign of the Times,” Styles embarked on his first headlining tour of 2017, “Harry Styles: Live on Tour.” According Billboard (via Warm 106.9), this tour earned the young artist $63 million over more than 80 dates.
Her second tour titled “Love on Tour” kicked off in the fall of 2021 and grossed over $94.7 million on its first outing in 42 US cities. “Love on Tour” has sold over 719,000 tickets in the United States for the dates from September to November 2021, which Billboard estimates earned him about $2.25 million per show. Styles had a five-night run at New York’s Madison Square Garden – a venue he doubled over during the second half of the tour with a 15-night “residency” at the Garden this fall – which proved to be the most successful leg on tour with a whopping $13.8 million on 93,000 tickets. The final night of the tour’s 2021 leg took place on Long Island, which became its highest-grossing single night with $3.2 million in ticket sales.
He resumed touring in the summer of 2022 with 23 shows across Europe before pausing for his North American tour dates in the fall, including Toronto, a 15-night stint in New York, Austin , Chicago and Los Angeles. The tour will also take him to Latin America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe through mid-2023.
3. Take action
Many were surprised when Styles made his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic Dunkirk. Styles never disclosed his earnings from the film, but the 2017 film was critically acclaimed and Oscar-nominated, and many praised his low-key performance. He then starred in the Marvel movie The Eternals which has not received as much praise as Dunkirk, but has shown interest in trying out different types of roles within Hollywood. Director Chloe Zhao said: “I’ve been keeping tabs on Harry ever since. Dunkirk, I found it very interesting. After meeting him, I realized he was that character, the same way I chose the rest of my cast. There is so much Eros in him. He is rumored to have earned $380,000 for his appearance in the film.
Styles also has a supporting role in girlfriend Olivia Wilde’s upcoming drama don’t worry darling. The film has been the subject of immense controversy starting with an alleged feud between director Wilde and film star Florence Pugh, all the way to Spitgate 2022 with Chris Pine and Styles. For all the headlines, Styles reportedly earned a pretty penny for his role to the tune of $2.5 million (another controversy emerged with rumors that Pugh was only paid $700,000 for a meatier role in the movie). Wilde dispelled those rumors in a Variety interview, although the actual salary figures were never disclosed.
He will also be the leader of my policeman, another new movie coming out this fall on Amazon Prime. They’ve been tight-lipped on the actors’ salaries, but with Styles in the lead, he’ll likely bring in a good chunk of the change.
Styles took another left turn when it was announced he would be the executive producer of the 2018 CBS sitcom Happy together. Centered on a couple whose lives are turned upside down when a pop star moves into the house, the series is semi-autobiographical as it is inspired by a 20-month period when Styles lived in the attic of producer Ben Winston’s house. . The series was canceled in 2019 after 13 episodes. Executive producers can make anywhere from $30,000 to over $100,000 per episode, so this project was probably not only fun for Styles, but also lucrative.
5. Gucci Ambassador
Of course, endorsements are an easy way for celebrities to make money, and Styles is no different. He became a Gucci ambassador in 2019, and British vogue reported that he made £8m from his job, which was equivalent to $9.45m at the time.
What is Harry Styles net worth?
At just 28, Styles is already worth $90 million according to Celebrity Net Worth – a figure that will only grow from his sold-out tour, his future film career and whatever other endeavor he decides to try. afterwards. We are not worried at all, my dear.
