Stormzy joins Sunday Times Rich List


Stormzy debuts on the Sundays Times Rich list with £16 million. The news was announced today, with the rapper joining the list with the likes off Ed Sheeran and Adele. Ed Sheeran has also doubled his wealth in the last year to rise above Adele with a total worth of £160m, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

Meanwhile, Stormzy has beaten Taylor Swift to the UK’s number one spot – giving him his first chart-topping single. The grime artist’s comeback track Vossi Bop amassed 94,500 first-week combined sales to clinch victory over Swift’s Me!, which ultimately entered third behind Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road.

Stormzy also broke the UK’s weekly streaming record for a rap song, with 12.7 million listens.
