How much is Ne-Yo worth? Ne-Yo’s net worth is $16 million, according to most sources, and given his success as a singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor, that seems about right. Born Shaffer Chimere Smith, Ne-Yo has amassed his wealth by releasing five studio albums and landing six singles in the Top 10. He’s collaborated with the likes of Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Plies, and Calvin Harris, and when he’s not making music, he appears in films like “Stomp the Yard” and TV shows ranging from “CSI” to “The X Factor.”
Ne-Yo’s net worth is impressive, but according to Forbes, he’s got a long way to go if he wants to catch some of his musical peers. In 2012 alone, Birdman, Drake, Lil Wayne, Kane West, Jay-Z, Diddy, and Dr. Dre each earned more money than Ne-Yo has amassed in his entire career. Dre took in $110 million, topping Forbes’ Top 20 Hip-Hop Earners list, while Diddy made $45 million, Jay-Z raked in $38 million, Yeezy bagged $35 million and Weezy hauled in $27 million.
Ne-Yo’s net worth does, however, mean he’s richer than collaborator Pitbull, who’s worth $9 million. He’s also wealthier than Meek Mill ($4 million), Ja Rule ($5 million), Afrojack ($2 million), and Trey Songz ($10 million).
