How much money does Travis Scott have?
Travis Scott was born on April 30, 1992, in Houston, Texas, under Jacques Webster II’s real name. Today he is considered one of the richest rappers ever. He also works as a songwriter, music producer, and singer. The rapper has appeared in major works by Jay-Z and Rihanna. He and his (ex) girlfriend Kylie Jenner have been on a break since October 2019. The two have a daughter named Stormi. Travis Scott’s estimated net worth is 45 million euros.
Travis Scott’s career
Travis Scott was already passionate about music in his youth. At that time, he had already brought the first publications onto the market. For example, an EP with the help of a friend called Graduates in 2009. Two self-produced albums with OG Chess followed later. After leaving college, he separated from his student connections and made his way to Los Angeles. His goal: the breakthrough.
With ambition, he made it to Kanye West and TI, which both ran their own label. Other members of the label were also represented in the releases, including Jay-Z. Above all, as a producer, he could integrate into the label, which resulted in collaborations with Rihanna (title: B * tch Better Have My Money). Collaborations with Drake followed later.
He released his own mixtape in 2012 under the title Owl Pharaoh. His work was nominated as the best mixtape of the year at the BET Hip Hop Awards. The single Echelon (feat. 2 Chainz) was released separately as a single, and thus it made its first place in the rap charts.
Travis Scott landed at number 1 for the first time with his debut album Rodeo. The single Antidote made it into the top 20 of the US charts and was later awarded platinum. Further collaborations with Wiz Khalifa, Justin Bieber, and many more followed later. In the meantime, he is platinum twice and once triple platinum in the USA just because of his three studio albums. A total of over 5.5 million units were sold.
Cash flow from streaming music
There is no doubt that Travis Scott is one of the main beneficiaries in the streaming market. Rap generally appeals to a younger target group, and only the younger people actually hear a lot about Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, Apple Music, and Co.
Travis Scott has over 39 million listeners on Spotify alone. Unfortunately, other platforms do not publish any figures on this, but the statistics from Spotify are quite meaningful, as Spotify is the global market leader in music streaming. According to current statements, an artist earns just under 4,000 euros with one million streams. We use this number to determine the estimated sales figures (on Spotify alone). The total earnings on Spotify of over 35 million euros contribute to a gigantic fortune.
The five most successful songs on Spotify:
- SICKO MODE with 1.256 billion streams; estimated turnover: 5 million euros
- Goosebumps with 1.130 billion streams; estimated turnover: 4.5 million euros
- HIGHEST IN THE ROOM with 731 million streams; estimated turnover: 2.9 million euros
- ZEZE with 515 million streams; estimated turnover: 2 million euros
- BUTTERFLY EFFECT with 503 million streams; estimated turnover: just under 2 million euros
Income from documentary film
With Travis Scott: Look, Mom, I Can Fly, White Trash, Tyler directs a documentary emerged. The film, which was also produced by Travis Scott himself, was released in 2019. It is about the artist’s advertising and runs from his beginnings to his third studio album, ASTROWORLD. On August 28, 2019, the documentary was released on Netflix, whose production company also directed the film.
There are no sales figures or cinema charts because Netflix is a streaming service and does not publish any numbers or anything else. However, Travis Scott is likely to have received several million euros from Netflix, and at the same time, investments were made in the artist’s image. More people than ever could have noticed Travis Scott, which he would have earned indirectly through the film.
Merchandising as another source of income
Since the music can hardly be sold in stores anymore, more and more artists (or their labels) rely on a distribution channel in online trading. New albums or mixtapes are offered separately as a physical version and sometimes vinyl in a separate shop. That goes down well with fans who collect all of the artist’s products.
Travis Scott also has his own shop, but this has a constantly changing range. You can currently find individual rims for several thousand euros as well as a car at an auction. The current mixtape is also available as vinyl, cassette, CD, and a “digital pack” (music download). An own range of clothes Travis Scott has to also lessen in Farfetch and on Amazon. At over 100 euros for a hoodie from the ASTROWORLD album, the products are correspondingly high-priced.
Fees for performances
His fee per tour appearance is 90,000 euros. A total of 10 tour appearances have been announced for 2020, which would earn him 900,000 euros. His tours take place in the USA and Poland, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil.
Participation in the YouTube partner program
Like every artist, Travis Scott naturally has his own YouTube channel. This is also very successful, with over seven million subscribers. However, its click figures per month are relatively low. In January 2020, for example, there were only 240,000 clicks. As of last in August 2018, this number can also rise to almost one million during a promotional phase. The YouTube earnings are estimated at only 1,000 euros per month, according to Social Blade.
