Drake pulls a hefty paycheck from each show, but how does he compare with other artists?
Concert promoters take note: if you want to book Drake, you’ll have to reach deep into your pockets.
Documents from Thesmokinggun.com reveal that the Young Money rapper pulls $155,000 per show, making him among the higher-paid acts in all of Hip Hop. But how does he compare with other acts?
Drake is far outdone by acts such as Rascal Flatts ($702,500), Kiss ($500,000), Keith Urban ($487,500) and Justin Bieber ($300,000). However, the Toronto emcee’s price eclipses Selena Gomez’ ($100,000), “American Idol” winner Kris Allen ($12,500), Sheryl Crow ($146,500) and Jordin Sparks ($75,000).
While the fattest paycheck for the 2010 U.S. summer concert season would have been banked by U2–had Bono not been temporarily crippled–several other touring acts are commanding hefty six-figures fees. According to contract documents obtained by Buster, here’s a sampling of what it costs to book some country, hip-hop, rock, and bubblegum acts:
Rascal Flatts $702,500
Keith Urban $487,500
Selena Gomez $100,000
Kelly Pickler $40,000
Kris Allen $12,500
Chris Young $7,500
Currently, Drake is working on his sophomore album, Take Care.
Soulja Boy recently revealed that he will star in a new movie titled The Deandre Way, named after his third album, which is due in stores tomorrow (November 30th).
According to Soulja Boy, the flick will be a personal look at his rise to fame, which he labeled a "true success story."
"These people have been pitching me this movie idea for so long, and now I am letting them orchestrate my art and tell my story and let people see it on the big screen," Soulja Boy explained to AllHipHop.com. "A lot of people say ‘Soulja Boy is a one hit wonder, and he’s lucky. It's not even about music. It's about a success story, but it's a true story from the bottom to the top, a true success story."
The movie is a visualization of his third album, also titled The DeAndre Way.
Soulja has one hit off the record titled "Pretty Boy Swag," and he recently released another single, titled "Speakers Going Hammer."
"If you look at this third album, its like I am becoming more personal and more real and telling people about my life as a human being, not as a super star," Soulja Boy told AllHipHop.com. "I think all my fans, no, I know all my fans are going to feel that."
The Deandre Way is light on guest appearances, with Trey Songz, Lil B., Bei Maejor, Esther Dean and G-Unit's frontman 50 Cent ("Mean Mug") making cameos.
“I met 50 when I was 17," Soulja Boy revealed. "I chopped it up with him, I let him know how I felt about his first album, and then I told him I wanted to get some money with him, not necessarily in the music industry,” Soulja said. “I told him lets get some money outside the music industry and I just want to flip these millions. Ever since then we were cool."
Soulja Boy's third album The Deandre Way is in stores on November 30th.
