How did Baby Kaely Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on February 22, 2005 in New Jersey, Baby Kaely grew up in the city of Newark with her parents and three siblings. Inherently talented, she began reciting song lyrics at the astonishing age of three after listening to them once on radio. While other kids her age were just beginning to speak full sentences, she was already singing songs. By the time she was five, it was apparent that she’s have a future ahead of herself in music. Growing up, it wasn’t uncommon for her to spend the entire day engrossed with music.
In 2010, her popularity as a young hip hop artist took a leap after she launched her own Youtube channel. From there, a number of videos were posted onto her page; some of her earliest uploads included 5 Year Old Dancing Hip Hop, 5 Year Old Rapping!!, 5 Year Old Baby Kaely Dancing, and Awesome 5 Year Old Rapping All About her Bubble Gum!!, the last of which has since garnered over 2.3 million views on the site.
Continuing to grow her presence on Youtube, Baby Kaely later posted a series of cover songs including those by Willow Smith, Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Selena Gomez. By 2011, her videos were receiving thousands upon thousands of views. Aside from her music videos, her channel also consisted of many vlogs, which detailed certain aspects of her life at the time. Within two year’s time, she had amassed over 26K fans on the video-sharing site- quite impressive for a seven year old.
From 2013 onwards, her subscriber count has been growing at a steady pace according to statistics provided by Socialblade. By early 2016, Baby Kaely had more than 585K fans on the site. Currently, the rapper receives anywhere from 100K to 200K+ views a day; since July 2015, her total view count has gone up tremendously. As of June 2017, she had well over 260 million views across all of her videos.
With that kind of audience, she presumably earns a significant amount through Youtube’s partnership program. In case you’re not familiar with it, users on the site are able to earn a small amount of revenue by displaying Google ads on their videos; although the exact number differs from Youtuber to Youtuber, typically the site pays upwards of $5 per 1,000 monetized views (40% to 60% are usually monetized). Given that Baby Kaely has over 285 million views, she would have earned upwards of $500,000 (obviously, Google would also take a cut).
On January 1, 2013, Baby Kaely was featured in will.i.am’s original song, Ghetto Ghetto, a track taken from his studio album titled, #Willpower. A relative success, the official audio later uploaded on his Youtube VEVO page, has since been viewed close to 500,000 times. On Soundcloud, the title has also accumulated over 41K times. Not only did the collaboration receive many hits on the web, but it also garnered the young rapper much exposure. The track was later re-released that April as part of his deluxe album.
Two years later, the rapper made another guest appearance in What a Girl Is, one of the songs from Disney’s Liv and Maddie soundtrack. Also featuring Christina Grimmie, Supported by the popularity of the show, it proved to be a massive hit upon its release. Since its music video was first uploaded onto Grimmie’s Youtube Channel in February 2015, it has racked up more than 25.7 million views.

Met mostly with positive reviews, it currently holds a 4.4 star rating on the iTunes store.
