Since Lewis Capaldi had his breakthrough in 2019, the 22-year-old singer-songwriter from Scotland has gone from strength to strength.
His debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent was released on May 17th, 2019 to critical and commercial success.
So, how successful is Lewis right now and is he really worth $10 million as Forbes estimated?
Read on to find out everything you need to know about Lewis’ real net worth and what he has in store for 2020…
Lewis Capaldi: Musical bio
His music career began a decade ago when he started singing in pubs at the age of twelve.
As he continued to release music on the internet and upload covers to YouTube, Lewis’ talented was spotted by a manager and the rest is history.
Since 2017, he has released two EPs to great commercial success and even toured with Rag’n’Bone Man and Niall Horan!
Lewis Capaldi’s net worth in 2019
Last year, Forbes estimated Lewis Capaldi’s net worth at a staggering $10 million, which obviously surprised many considering he hadn’t even released his debut album by that point. Lewis took to Instagram to set the record straight.
Lewis jokingly refuted this estimate, stating “I have less than £200 in my bank right now so who the f*** has my $10 million?”
He also claims he still lives in his childhood bedroom at his parent’s house… that probably wouldn’t be the case if Lewis was a multi-millionaire!
How much is Lewis really worth?
Although he may not be a multimillionaire, Lewis is still getting by with his music career!
Looking at his two lead singles on Spotify, ‘Someone You Loved’ and ‘Bruises’, which have an ammassed total of over 227 million, we can estimate how much Lewis is making from his music. From these streams, Lewis’ music would be earning about $1,135,000.
And although he would have to split this profit with his label and managers and producers, he’s still earning a pretty penny from Spotify alone!
