Adele Is Now The Richest Female Musician In The UK

The whole world knows Adele is a globally successful artist – and to confirm just how successful she is the London-born artist has claimed a spot on the young musicians’ rich list.

Her fortune has sky-rocketed since she released her latest album titled ’25’ last year, and her fortune now amounts to $120 million (£85 million). Before the release of her latest album Adele took a few years away from the music industry, but this doesn’t seem to have had any effect on her success or her fan-following.

The 27-year-old topped artists like Kylie Minogue, Ed Sheeran and  Sir Cliff Richards.
