How much is Brandy worth? Brandy Norwood is worth $12 million, according to, and while that fortune hardly makes her one of the richest R&B singers in the game, it’s not a bad little nest-egg. Brandy was born on February 11, 1979, in McComb, Mississippi, but she moved as a young girl to Los Angeles, where she grew up loving the music of Whitney Houston. By the early ’90s, she’d begun singing background for the group Immature, and after landing a solo deal with Atlantic, she arrived on the national scene with her 1994 self-titled debut. The album produced two chart-topping R&B hits, “I Wanna Be Down” and “Baby,” and she added to her growing celebrity — and net worth — two years later, when “Sittin’ On My Room,” her contribution to the wildly popular “Waiting to Exhale” soundtrack, reached no. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

Brandy’s net worth continued to grow during the ’90s, and in 1998, she teamed up with fellow songstress Monica for what would become her biggest hit, “The Boy Is Mine.” The tune helped move copies of her sophomore effort, “Never Say Never,” which peaked at no. 2. Subsequent albums “Full Moon” and “Afrodisiac” also snuck into the top 5, reaching no. 2 and 3, respectively, and while her fifth album, “Human,” only managed to make no. 15, her most recent LP, “Two Eleven,” topped the R&B tally and hit no. 3 on the Billboard 200.

What is Brandy worth compared to other famous singers? Given that Brandy is also an actress — she’s appeared on such TV shows as “Moesha” and “The Game” and earned high marks for her various film roles — one might be tempted to compare her to artists like Beyonce and Mariah Carey, both of whom are talented songbirds as well as thespians. While Brandy’s $12 million net worth puts her nowhere near Bey, who’s worth an estimated $350 million, or Mimi, who’s sitting on a cool $510 million, she’s still going strong and prepping a new album for 2014. She’ll make a lot more bank before all’s said and done.
