Nick Jonas Net Worth: $18 Million

Some artists have a difficult time transitioning from a group to a solo career — but not Nick Jonas. Despite the Jonas Brothers disbanding, Nick Jonas' net worth has been propped up by a successful album release in 2014 and numerous hit singles, like the more recent "Close."

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Nick Jonas' net worth is $18 million. He appeared in Forbes' 2016 "30 under 30" list, which revealed the top 600 young stars, leaders and entrepreneurs. His success is partly owed to his stint with the Jonas Brothers. Beyond the sheer popularity of the group, their musical success earned them $35.5 million between 2009 and 2010, reported Forbes.

Nick Jonas is no newcomer to the entertainment industry either. Born in Dallas, he made his Broadway debut at the age of 7. In 2015, Nick Jonas appeared on "Scream Queens," starring queen of horror Jamie Lee Curtis and "American Horror Story" alum Emma Roberts. This year, Nick Jonas has several productions underway, including "Les Misérables," "A Christmas Carol" and "Beauty and the Beast."

Nick Jonas Music

The singer's new album "Last Year Was Complicated" is set to drop June 10. Nick Jonas' "Close" was the first single off the album. It was released March 25 and opened at No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the singer's third-highest charting solo single. On the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140, which tracks the trendiness of new hits, the song debuted at No. 1.

The "Last Year Was Complicated" album will follow the release of his second studio solo album, titled "Nick Jonas," which was released Nov. 10, 2014. The album debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard charts and sold 37,000 copies in the United States its first week. That album included the hits "Jealous" and "Chains."

While a member of the Jonas Brothers, Nick started the band Nick Jonas and the Administration. The band released the album "Who I Am" in 2010 to moderate success. In 2005, the singer had a limited release album titled "Nicholas Jonas."

The Jonas Brothers

Nick and his two brothers, Joe and Kevin, formed the boy band the Jonas Brothers and released their first album, "It's About Time," in 2006. Unfortunately, the album wasn't a huge success, selling only 67,000 copies in the U.S., reported Billboard. Their second album, titled "Jonas Brothers," was a hit, selling 1.9 million in the U.S.

The Jonas Brothers released two followup albums: "A Little Bit Longer" and "Lines, Vines and Trying Times," which sold 1.6 million and 669,000 copies, respectively. Despite their success, the group had a falling out. Before the release of a new album and world tour, the Jonas Brothers split in 2013.

Nick Jonas Concerts

During his stint with the Jonas Brothers, Nick and his brothers headlined their own tours, including the Burnin' Up Tour of 2008, which grossed $41 million, and a world tour that grossed $95 million, according to Forbes.
