Shakira is a Colombian singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress, and philanthropist who has a net worth of $300 million dollars. Born and raised in Barranquilla, Shakira has been referred to as the Queen of Latin Music and is noted for her versatility in music. 

She made her recording debut under Sony Music Colombia at the age of 13. Following the commercial failure of her first two Colombian albums, Magia (1991) and Peligro (1993), she rose to prominence in Hispanic countries with her next albums, Pies Descalzos (1995) and Dónde Están los Ladrones? (1998). Shakira entered the English-language market with her fifth album, Laundry Service (2001). It sold over 13 million copies, spawned the international number-one singles “Whenever, Wherever” and “Underneath Your Clothes”, and propelled her reputation as a leading crossover artist.

Her success was further solidified with the Spanish albums Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 (2005), Sale el Sol (2010), and El Dorado (2017), all of which topped the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart and were certified diamante by the Recording Industry Association of America. Meanwhile, her English albums Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 (2005), She Wolf (2009) and Shakira (2014) were all certified gold, platinum, or multi-platinum in various countries worldwide. Some of her songs have charted at number one in multiple countries, including “La Tortura”, “Hips Don’t Lie”, “Beautiful Liar”, “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)”, “Loca”, and “Chantaje”. Shakira served as a coach on two seasons of the American singing competition television series The Voice (2013–2014).

Shakira has received numerous awards, including three Grammy Awards, twelve Latin Grammy Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, seven Billboard Music Awards, thirty-nine Billboard Latin Music Awards, six Guinness World Records and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2009, Billboard listed her as the Top Female Latin Artist of the Decade. Having sold more than 75 million records worldwide, Shakira remains one of the world’s best-selling music artists. Forbes reported that as of 2018, Shakira has become the Female Latin artist who has sold the most albums in history. 

She is also ranked as the most-streamed Latin artist on Spotify and became one of only three female artists to have two YouTube videos exceeding two billion views. For her philanthropic work with her Barefoot Foundation and her contributions to music she received the Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year and Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year awards in 2011.

She was appointed to the President’s Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics in the US in 2011, and Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government in 2012. Forbes ranked her among the top-earning women in music in 2008 and 2019.

Lil Yachty Net Worth

 Lil Yachty is an American hip hop recording artist who has a net worth of $8 million. He first gained recognition on the internet in 2015 for his singles “One Night” and “Minnesota” from his debut EP Summer Songs. He released his debut mixtape Lil Boat in March 2016. On June 10, 2016, Yachty announced that he had signed a joint venture record deal with Quality Control Music, Capitol Records, and Motown Records.

Lil Yachty represents an evolution in the rap and hip-hop genres towards something completely new.

Instead Lil Yachty has described his music as “bubblegum trap,” and he frequently uses sound bytes from sources such as cartoon theme songs and video games. Although perhaps simplistic, his music has been well-received by various critics, who describe it as “catchy” and “fun.”

Yachty has released four studio albums, beginning with Teenage Emotions in 2017. His second and third studio albums, Lil Boat 2 and Nuthin’ 2 Prove, were released in 2018, and his most recent album, Lil Boat 3, was released on May 29, 2020. All four of his albums have charted within the top 20 of the Billboard 200, with Lil Boat 2 peaking at #2. Yachty has also released several mixtapes and EPs throughout his career. Lil Yachty is best known for his features on the 2016 multi-platinum songs “Broccoli” and “ISpy”, his eccentric hairstyle, and his optimistic image.
