He also has many hit singles that have peaked on different global charts and earned various certification plagues at different levels. How much is Jason Derulo worth considering his achievements? Here’s what we know.
Derulo Stormed The Industry In 2020
The Derulo we know today started with releasing songs like “Whatcha Say,” “In My Head,” and “Ridin’ Solo.” These were the songs that brought the American artist to fame. Ever since his appearance, he has partnered with a lot of artists.

His 2020 hit single, “Savage Love,” stormed the industry and social media while some fans created special dance moves to give the project an identity. His popularity grew when he enhanced his presence on social media, especially TikTok.
In a recent interview with Complex, the pop singer revealed that he makes up to $75 thousand per video on the app. He also shared what TikTok means to him and how he can relate to its services.
He loves creation, either from scratch or from a laid-down idea. He loves making fun of himself and writing/screenwriting. These things push him to the regular use of TikTok even as a celebrity.
What Is Derulo’s Worth In 2022?
According to CelebrityNetWorth, Derulo is currently worth $16 million. This figure was obtained from a summation of his income from songwriting, singing, and production for artists, including Lil Wayne, Diddy, etc.
Apart from studio creativity, he also earns money from merchandise sales, doing live performances, and making appearances on television shows. He starred in movies like “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Lethal Weapons.”
He also starred in “Everybody Dance Now,” an Australian Television series alongside Kelly Rowland, the famous American singer/songwriter. Three years ago, he starred in “Cats,” the musical adaptation.
Apart from his time on big screens, he also earns money (and followers) on different social media platforms, including Instagram and TikTok, due to his influence as a star. Considering all these, he should be worth more.
Derulo Disapproved The Amount Online As His Worth
Before any amount became official as Derulo’s net worth, some of his core fans wondered if he was already a billionaire. However, the artist gave insight on his net worth, particularly addressing the amount online as being far from the actual one.
In the same interview with Complex, Derulo stated that the amount was wrong. He referred to a conversation he had a few days back with Forbes, asking about the person/group of people that come up with such numbers.

He genuinely asked Forbes how to make necessary corrections because he couldn’t access the true source. Another reason why his actual worth might be more than the stated amount is his philanthropic work.
The singer often uses his social media accounts to support and promote his “Just For You Foundation.” The foundation is to raise money for orphans and less privileged families to promote their education, provide shelter, and feed the homeless.
His Breakthrough In The Industry
Derulo wrote and co-wrote songs for different recording artists for some years before actually signing to a record label as an artist. He was signed to Beluga Heights, an American label established by veteran J.R. Rotem.
After the record label became affiliated with a bigger label, Warner Music Group, the Floridian officially became a recording artist and released his debut single, “Whatcha Say,” in 2009.
The song peaked at number one in the US, earned a triple-platinum RIAA certification, and recorded over five million digital downloads. He released another single that same year before dropping his debut album, a year after his debut single.
After releasing his first album, he ceaselessly continued dropping awesome projects ranging from singles to Extended Plays (EPs) and albums. Some of them hold some record-breaking statistics on the official US and UK charts.
