American singer Madison Beer rose to fame after her singing was shared by popular pop star, Justin Bieber in 2012. Hailing from Long Island, New York, the brunette fell in love with performing as a young child; she later decided to become a singer while still in grade school.
Eventually taking up a few experiments including the piano and guitar, she worked diligently to perfect her sound over the next few years. As her passion grew stronger with time, Beer began recording and uploading cover videos onto her own Youtube channel. Sure enough, her hard work paid off. In 2013, she received a colossal break after her rendition of At Last by Etta James was shared by pop sensation, Justin Bieber on Twitter. Not long afterwards, Beer was signed on to Island Records.
Allegedly, the 18-year-old artist currently has a net worth of $6 million. How did she earn her wealth? Let’s answer that question by taking a closer look at her career thus far.

How did Madison Beer Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on March 5, 1999, Madison Beer spent her childhood in Jericho, with her parents and younger brother, Ryder. Growing up, she’s always been a performer; ever since she was a young girl, she had loved to sing. By the time she was in grade school, the brunette had picked up an array of musical instruments including the piano, guitar, and the drums.
As a teen, Beer began recording covers of popular songs such as those by Adele, Bruno Mars, and Lauryn Hill in the early 2010’s; the videos were later uploaded and shared on her Youtube account, which was created on February 12, 2012. Although they received their fair share of hits, it wasn’t until 2013, after her rendition of Etta James’ At Last was shared by pop singer Justin Bieber on Twitter, that she garnered nationwide attention. Before long, her name was trending on the social media platform.
Not long afterwards, the brunette received a record deal with Island Records- the same label that Justin Bieber was signed to. Managed by Scooter Braun, Beer eventually began working on her official single debut. After recording a theme song for Monster High, a fashion doll franchise, she dropped her first song, Melodies on January 1, 2013. Made available via digital download, it marked her official entrance into the music industry. Within the end of the first week, the single had sold roughly 9,000 copies.
That year, her collaboration with Cody Simpson, Valentine was also re-released officially on February 9, 2013.
Beer’s next song, Unbreakable was released on June 17, 2014. Written by a team consisting of Evan Bogart, Jessica Ashley, Emanuel Kiriakou and Matt Schwartz among a few others, its official music video has since been viewed over 16.1 million times through her Vevo account. Despite being a solid addition to her catalogue however, reviews from critics were generally mixed. Nonetheless, it added to Beer’s continuously climbing popularity.
On September 4, 2015, the artist came out All For Love, a collaboration with the pop rap duo, Jack & Jack. Considerably more successful compared to her previous title, it received mostly positive reviews from fans. Since the MV was first uploaded online in September 2015, it has been viewed over 14.9 million times- a vibrant sign of her success.
On February 24, 2015, the New Yorker was featured in DJ Mako’s hit song, I Won’t Let You Walk Away. Coming to life with the addition of her vocals, the project- co-written by the artist, garnered multiple praises from those within the industry. Her first endeavour to reach the charts, it eventually peaked at number 43 on the US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and at number 33 on the US Dance/Electronic Digital Songs chart.
Before the end of the year, Beer released a new song titled, Something Sweet on December 18, 2015. Though it didn’t chart in the United States, it has since been played over 35,000 times on her official Soundcloud account.
Naturally, her musical releases have contributed significantly to her net worth. According to various sources, the singer has yielded upwards of ~$4 million from record sales alone; allegedly, her best-selling single so far is that of her 2014 hit, Unbreakable, which has since earned her a little over $1 million.
Aside from her musical endeavours, Beer has also taken to film in the last few years. In 2013, she made her movie debut in the independent film, Louder Than Words, where she had the opportunity to work with actors David Duchovny, Adelaide Kane, Morgan Griffin, and Timothy Hutton.
While she hasn’t returned to the big screen since, she did eventually go on to make an appearance in the television series, Todrick in 2015. Speaking of which, Beer has also been featured as herself in Piper’s Picks TV (2014), and Hollywood Medium (2016).
Last year, the social media star also landed a deal with Wilshire Studios for a reality show called, Making Madison, which will centre around her everyday life. According to reports, television executive Amy Palmer of TRL fame will be producing the series. Still under ways, no release date has been announced as of yet.
On Youtube, her channel also yields a non-negligible amount of revenue. Since her rise to prominence, Beer’s subscriber count on the site has grown immensely; as of June 2017, the brunette has amassed over 321,000 subscribing fans. As far as her video uploads go, she has received close to 16 million life time views on her channel.
Considering these numbers, it’s only natural for her to monetized her videos through Google’s partnership program. Through out, users can earn upwards of a few dollars per 1,000 monetized views- the exact amount depending on facts such as content, audience and location. On average, only 40% of one’s total views are monetized; for Beer, this works out to be 6.3 million views. Assuming that she earns at least $2 per 1,000 views, she would have yielded at least $12,700 from her channel alone.
Her most-viewed upload to date- a cover of Sam Smith’s Stay With Me, has since hit over 4 million views. Some of her other popular videos include Bruno Mars Mashup, Caught in the Act, Unbreakable (piano version) and At Last- Etta James Cover. Currently, it is estimated that her Youtube channel reviews anywhere from 3-5k views on a daily basis.
Speaking of social media, Beer also has over 9.4 million followers on Instagram. With such an audience, she’d be able to yield revenue through endorsement and sponsorship deals. Did you know that a celebrity can earn upwards of a few grand (in times even more) per brand campaign? Considering her fan base, she’s likely to have already banked a few thousands from the photo/video sharing app alone.
For fans who’d like to own some official merchandise, Beer has also set up an online store, where individuals can purchase items such as tank tops, t-shirts, and beanies (ranging from $19.99 to $30).
How has her earnings changed in the past years? In 2012, Beer’s (who was only thirteen years old at the time) annual income was estimated to be at $381,000- this amount later grew to $470,000 in 2013 and again to $613,000 in 2014. By 2015, the Insta-famous star was bringing home roughly $705,000.
What about her overall net worth- how has it grown? In 2012, the brunette’s assets were estimated to be ~$3.4 million. As her popularity and earnings grew, this jumped up to $4.8 million in 2013, and $5.1 million in 2014. Currently, Beer has a net worth of roughly $6 million.
With everything that she has going for her- including her impending reality series, we’d say it’s highly likely for her assets to go up in the near future. Will Beer eventually tackle Hollywood and return to the big screen? We’ll just have to wait and see.
