Adam Levine Net Worth Through Time
The Adam Levine net worth journey started off back in 2002. Levine kicked off his career as a hardworking singer in that year with the hit Maroon 5 album Songs About Jane. Though the band had been active since 1994, the 2002 album was its first studio album and its first big hit. The album was a critical success as well as a financial one, selling an estimated nine million copies worldwide. At $10.99 each, that generated revenue close to $100 million. Exactly how that’s split between the band members isn’t published. However, according to industry insiders, artists generally get about 11.1% of sales dollars, if they write their own music. Levine has been quoted as saying every song is a collaboration of the members. If they split the winnings up six ways, that would give Levine 1.85% of the $98.9 million Songs About Jane earned. That adds $1.8 million to the Adam Levine net worth sum.
Sales have dwindled since that first hit album was released. That might not be so much because of waning popularity as waning interest in buying albums in general. Consumers tend to stream music these days or seek it out on YouTube.

How Much Money Does Adam Levine Make for The Voice?
The one thing Adam Levine is best known for is The Voice. The show adds $41 million to the Adam Levine net worth calculations. When Levine first joined the show as a judge in 2011, reports indicated he made a very comfortable $100,000 per episode. With 229 total episodes to his name, that would be a tidy $22 million. But the story doesn’t stop there. According to media reports from 2016, Levine’s pay jumped to an even higher $10 million to $12 million per year. Plotting a graph between his $1.2 million for twelve shows at $100,000 each in 2011 and his $12 million in 2015 and 2016 gives us our $41 million total. The table below shows Adam Levine’s The Voice earnings estimates through time.

Concerts and Adam Levine Net Worth
Concerts are the second biggest contributor to Adam Levine’s net worth with $41 million. Unfortunately, solid data on Maroon 5 concert box office earnings is a bit hard to find. We built our best-guess estimate based on the available data. For instance, Pollstar doesn’t list Maroon 5 as one of the top 50 concert tours of 2011. That may be a statistical glitch, since the band’s Hands All Over tour started in that year but finished up in 2012. Their Overexposed tour starting in 2012 averaged $1.25 million in box office money per show for 15 shows. With 68 shows total, that would give the tour revenue of $85 million total. Downgrading that a bit to bring it into line with existing estimates gives us our figure for the tour of $65 million. Bands keep a reported 85% of concert revenue. As 1/6th of Maroon 5, 14% of the total would wind up in the Adam Levine net worth column.
There’s also no clear estimate for how much money the 12th Annual Honda Civic Tour adds to Adam Levine’s net worth. However, with 34 shows at a probable $500,000 each, the tour likely took in $17 million. Levine most probably kept 10% of that or $1.7 million.

Albums and Adam Levine Net Worth
Maroon 5 has five studio albums and several EPs, compilations and live albums. Their live albums are Songs About Jane, It Won’t Be Soon Before Long, Hands All Over, Overexposed and V. Their biggest by far was 2002’s Songs About Jane with nine million in sales. At $10.99 per album, that figures out to $98.9 million. The band most likely split around 11.1% of that six ways. That would give Levine 1.85% or $1.8 million.
Levine’s 2002 album success started a long time earlier. Way back in 1997, Levine’s band was called Kara’s Flowers. At the time, the bandmates were all in high school and shared a crush on a girl of that name. Though young, the bandmembers actually landed a record deal with a major music producer. However, the record was a flop. Levine and his friends were failures at just 18 years old.

Singles and Adam Levine Net Worth
Sales of singles never add much to any major artist’s wealth. The Adam Levine net worth situation isn’t an exception to that rule. It’s true that Levine’s band Maroon 5 has released 19 singles and that six of those went platinum. The platinum hits are listed in the table below. The biggest hit among them all is 2011’s Moves Like Jagger. The single featured Christina Aguilera and hit the #1 spot in the Billboard Hot 100 list. That song went 6x platinum and sold an estimated 8 million copies around the world. Even so, Levine only kept an estimated $130,000 from those sales after taxes and expenses. That money is figured as $1.99 per single sale for 8 million sales or $15.9 million total. Maroon 5 gets 11.1% of that and Adam Levine gets 1/6th of that.
The other 13 Maroon 5 singles to date have had lackluster sales at best. Estimates place their sales at just 5 million copies for the lot.

YouTube and Adam Levine Net Worth
Maroon 5’s YouTube channel pumps $652,000 per year into the Adam Levine net worth estimate. YouTube ad revenue sits at around $7.60 for 1,000 views by some estimates. With 4.9 billion views, that’s $37 million. We estimate the band keeps 85% of Vevo earnings or $32 million. Dividing that up by the six members of the band gives Levine’s cut of $5 million.
Maroon 5’s YouTube channel doesn’t just have music on it. In 2011 Levine posted a video there supporting the It Gets Better project, which aims to give hope to gay teens. In the video, Levine talks about gay suicide and bullying. He makes the case that every teen is amazing in their own way and that it’s a tragedy to let the gullies win. The video has over 400,000 views to date. It’s not “monetized,” which means there are no ads linked to the video. In that regard, the clip ads nothing to the Adam Levine net worth total.

Adam Levine Endorsements and Merchandise
How much do endorsements add to the Adam Levine net worth sum? Probably more than any other income stream. Levine is no dummy when it comes to earning sponsor dollars. The star has major deals with Proactiv, KMart and Khol’s. He also has deals with Nissan and Toyota. Exact figures aren’t made public, but we did some estimating based on other stars. Top stars like Taylor Swift can pull down around $20 million a year in endorsement deal money. Smaller stars like Meek Mill can wind up with around $1 million per year. The big players in the endorsement arena are companies like Nike and Pepsi. Smaller deals can come from companies like Puma. Levine’s contracts are somewhere in between.
