How much money does Zedd have?
This Russian-German music producer and DJ also prove that the music industry can turn even comparatively young artists into multiple millionaires. Zedd, who has even dated Selena Gomez in the past, already has many millions of euros to his name. Although the successful DJ was born in the former Soviet Union, he grew up there only briefly. Because at the age of 3, he moved with his Russian-Jewish family to Germany, where he subsequently lived in Kaiserslautern. Zedd’s estimated fortune is 36 million dollars.
The early music career of Zedd
He clearly owes his penchant for music to his parents. Because both Zedd’s father and his mother worked as music teachers. He learned to play the piano at the age of 4. Today’s producer has also already taken part in the well-known “Jugend musiziert” competition. However, it was not long before he turned his back on classical music. From 2002 on, Zedd, whose real name is Anton Zaslavski, played drums. Together with his brother and another band member, he joined the band Dioramic, which was known for its metal and rock sounds. It was even signed to the Lifeforce Records label.
The musician discovered his interest in electronic music only in 2009, thanks to Justice. To further his career, Zedd finally ventured to move to the United States of America in 2012, where he also met pop starlet Selena. His initial career as a producer was immediately crowned with a breakthrough success. With the single “Dovregubben,” the music talent finally secured the number one spot on the Beatport electro house charts in June 2011.
The DJ and music producer takes off
His 2012 collaboration with Max Martin also made Zedd so successful. He was finally able to participate in the song “Beauty and a Beat,” which featured Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber together. This song even made it to the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Zedd also produced the song “I Don’t Like You” by artist Eva Simons. This song took the pole position on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs. Thus, Zedd had established himself as a successful producer early on.
Income of Zedd
Zedd released his first studio album in 2012, “Clarity”, which reached the 38th position on the album charts in the USA, although the album only stayed there for one week. The collaboration with Lady Gaga and the fact that the German TV station ProSieben picked up the song “Spectrum” from the album were a blessing for the producer. His song “Codec” also made it onto the soundtrack of the movie “Die Unfassbaren,” so 2012 and 2013 were to become two very successful years for the young artist.
