According to Forbes, the singer who will perform at the concert in Fortnite will earn over $ 20 million.
This is not the compensation Ariana Grande will receive from Fortnite publisher Epic Games, but the expected income related to the event, including from the sale of CDs, gadgets and occasional in-game items. Paul Tassi, a Forbes journalist, bases his estimates on past data. Travis Scott, who performed in Fortnite last year, grossed around $ 20 million. That’s about ten times more than an American rapper charges for one standard concert held in real space.
Tassi predicts that Ariana Grande will earn even more than Travis Scott because she is the more popular artist – she sells more records and has more fans. The final amount that will go to the singer’s account will come from the sale of albums and official gadgets, but also from the sale of the Grande skin and a special backpack that the creators have prepared for the upcoming event.
