Does Drake or Jenner have a higher 2019 net worth?
Drake’s rise to fame and popular songs
Born on October 24, 1986, in Toronto, Ontario, the rapper’s mother primarily raised him when his parents divorced. After dropping out of school to avoid bullying and pursue his acting career, he landed his first gig as Jimmy Brooks in Degrassi: The Next Generation at the age of 15.
According to Drake, the “only money” coming into his household was from the show until his character graduated six years later in 2007. In 2006, Drake released his first mixtape, Room for Improvement, and quickly followed it up with Comeback Season the following year.
In 2009, Drake dropped one of his most popular mixtapes, So Far Gone, which put him at the center of a bidding war from several labels. He chose to sign to Birdman and Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment in 2009, and the rest has been history.
Drake’s most popular songs include “One Dance,” “Hotline Bling,” “God’s Plan,” “Nice for What,” and “In My Feelings.”
Kylie Jenner’s famous family and successful makeup line
Despite having a famous family, the youngest Jenner still went to school, where she competed on the cheerleading team until she enrolled in homeschooling in 2012 at age 15.
In 2013, she and her sister, Kendall, launched The Kendall & Kylie Collection with clothing store PacSun and then started a handbag and shoe line for Steve Madden’s Madden Girl.
The sisters have gone on to appear in music videos, host award shows, and write two books. Inspired by Kylie’s childhood insecurity concerning the size of her lips, she signed with Seed Beauty to launch her first lip kits in 2015.
The 15,000 kits sold out within a minute, and she renamed the company to Kylie Cosmetics before releasing 500,000 more in 2016. Due to the enormous success of her line, Forbes named Kylie the youngest billionaire ever in 2019.
Does Drake or Kylie Jenner have a higher 2019 net worth?
Drake has received endorsements from Sprite, Burger King and Whataburger in addition to earning money from his own business ventures.
In 2012, he started a record label with Noah “40” Shebib and Oliver El-Khatib, October’s Very Own, which has produced two albums that are certified platinum or higher by the RIAA.
In 2013, Drake became the global ambassador for the Toronto Raptors, and, in 2015, signed a reported $19 million deal with Apple Music. The following year, Drake launched his bourbon-based whiskey, Virginia Black, which includes commercials featuring his father, Dennis Graham. Drake’s 2019 net worth is $150 million.
Due to her numerous endorsements, Jenner has a 2019 net worth of around $100 million. However, her company is worth $900 million, giving her that billionaire status.
Therefore, technically, Drake has a higher net worth because 90% of Jenner’s earnings isn’t tangible money.
