Richest Songwriters in the World | TOP 10
Shall we get to the richest songwriters in the world?
The songwriters are in my opinion the most creative people in the world. Their minds work different from ours and that’s why they come up with great songs to inspire us all.
You know when a song is great; you can listen over and over and still not get tired of it. Not like the lyrics from these days, with two verses repeating over and over again.
In my opinion, if a song was written before the 2000s let’s say, is better. You get tired so quickly from the songs after the 2000s because you hear those few lyrics over and over; and the tone seems to be similar with the others.
That’s why in this list you’ll only see great songwriters that composed songs a few years ago and their music still warms our hearts.
And basically that’s the main reason for these guys wealthiest- originality. From songwriters like Michael Jackson to Sting, all of the best and wealthiest will be present in our top.

The successful British musician and philanthropist is better known for being a member of The Police and for his solo career after the band.
His first job into music industry was in some local clubs where he played in jazz bands and in 1977 he became a member of The Police band.

He got his nickname “Sting” after he performed wearing a black and yellow striped sweater that made him look like a wasp.
The song “Every Breath You Take” was released when Sting had an obsession with a lost love and quickly began one of the 10 most profitable songs of all time.
With a net worth estimated at $300 million, Sting is one of the richest songwriters in the world.
