0

According to the Sunday Times Rich List, Adele is Britain’s richest ever female musician.

On a list of the top 50 music millionaires in the UK and Ireland, Adele’s £85 million ($122 million) fortune puts her in the 30th place – an increase of £35 million compared to 2015.Adele 25 album

The only female singer with a bigger fortune on the list – which also covers Ireland – is Enya on £91 million ($130 million).

For the fifth year running Adele, 27, is also ranked top of the Young Music Rich List, covering those aged 30 and under.

The singer’s fortune was boosted by the November release of 25 – her first album in four years.

Adele made her debut on the under-30s list in 2011 in ninth place, but by 2012 she had secured the top spot, a position she has held onto ever since.

The singer is now ranked at number 30 in the overall UK and Ireland music millionaires list, above Cliff Richard, Gary Barlow and Kylie Minogue, and up from 43rd place in 2016.

Adele is one of just three solo women to make it onto the 2016 list.
