How rich is the DJ Robin Schulz?
From unemployment to millionaire – Robin Schulz, now an extremely successful DJ, has made a truly impressive career in recent years. He has probably also been helped by the fact that there was never a plan B for the artist. He has dedicated himself to the music with skin and hair. Robin Schulz now has an estimated fortune of 3,5 million dollars. In the future, his wealth is likely to grow just as rapidly. After all, there are artists among his DJ colleagues from all over the world who earn up to 10 million euros per year and more. David Guetta, for example, is one of the top earners in the industry.
Taking off with discipline and luck
Despite his young age, Robin Schulz is already a megastar. Even at the beginning of his career, it was said of the producer and DJ that he would go down in the history books as the most successful German club act to date. Robin from Osnabrück is also successful internationally with his tracks after all. Schulz says of himself that his career is built on discipline, diligence as well as the necessary portion of luck. But also the lack of alternatives regarding his career will have driven the DJ. After all, Robin Schulz could not have imagined any other profession. This may also be due to the example set by his father. He was a well-known disc jockey himself in the 1980s.
Nevertheless, Robin could not simply follow in his father’s footsteps, but had to work hard to achieve his current success. After finishing school, he was unemployed for a while. He lived in his native Osnabrück, which for the DJ is the greatest city in the world, in a modest apartment with not even 50 square meters and worked non-stop on new tracks – sometimes even to the point of exhaustion. The search for the one perfect beat just wouldn’t let him rest.
2013: Robin Schulz finally takes off
The fact that Robin Schulz was able to celebrate his international breakthrough in 2013 was, to a certain extent, due to stealing an idea from another artist. The song “Waves,” which actually came from a rapper from the Netherlands named “Mr. Probz,” was the basis for Robin Schulz’s grandiose piece, which he promptly published on his page at Soundcloud. Actually, this was a copyright infringement, which could have cost the artist dearly. But exactly the opposite was the case. The management of the Dutch rapper was so enthusiastic about the Schulz remix that both artists started earning money from the new song variant. Thus the DJ became a star almost overnight. Shortly after this lucky coincidence he had his first number 1 hit and sold his songs by the millions.
While Robin Schulz has become a millionaire through his art, he doesn’t make music for the sake of money. Rather, Schulz wants to keep creating new tracks that will completely freak people out on the dance floor. He wants to catapult his art to a whole new level and make a proper impression on his target audience. Since 2013, DJ Robin Schulz has been internationally known and earns around 100,000 euros per performance. The fortune that has earned the Osnabrück native his existence as an internationally successful DJ is therefore not the main motivation, but merely a nice side effect. Even his friends can only confirm that one of the reasons Robin Schulz is so successful is that he has always kept his down-to-earth attitude despite his international fame. If he continues like this, he will also be in the top 15 of the richest DJs in the world.
