A list of the top 50 music millionaires in the UK and Ireland puts the singer’s £85m fortune in 30th place – an increase of £35m compared to last year.
For the fifth year running Adele is also ranked top of the Young Music Rich List, covering those aged 30 and under.
The 27-year-old’s fortune was boosted by the November release of 25 – her first album in four years.
The singer made her debut on the under-30s list in 2011 in ninth place, but by 2012 she had secured the top spot, a position she has held onto ever since.
She’s one of just three solo women to make it onto the 2016 list.
