Jay may struggle to hold onto his crown as the richest musician, as Dr Dre reportedly had an estimated networth of $770m earlier this year

Jay Z is now the richest musician in America, according to an update of Forbes annual ranking of celebrity wealth.
Appearing behind George Lucas Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey   and Michael Jordan, with a net worth of $900m, the hip-hop mogul saw the biggest dollar gains out of anyone else on the list.

Thanks to his stakes in various companies, includin entertainment giant Roc Nation, his streaming service Tidal and alcohol companies including Armand de Brignac and D’Ussé, he has overtaken rapper Diddy ,who previously held the title.

Rolling stone notes that Jay may struggle to hold onto his crown as the richest musician, as Dr Dre reportedly had an estimated net worth of $770m earlier this year. That figure is likely to have climbed after his exit from Apple earlier this year.
