Marshmello has raked in $44 million in just two years
Having earned $44 million in 2 years, Marshmello doesn’t have a mellow bank account.
One thing is certain in this world loaded with information; people want to know everything, making anonymity something to break open.
Look at how people go crazy for Banksy! And on the musical side there is Daft Punk, Deadmau5, and a DJ who symbolizes campfire bliss- Marshmello.
Here’s a producer who thought to himself, “how can get every single person on earth to identify with me? Marshmallows! Everyone loves marshmallows.”
And it worked out better than he ever could have dreamed. At the tender age of 26, he has made the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, having raked in a casual $44 mill in two years of Mellowing out. (not really)
Who is this Mello?
He had the mystery, he had the music and then he worked on star-studded collaborations.
He garnered major success through pop-crossover singles like Happier featuring Bastille and Wolves featuring Selena Gomez.
He also has the 50th largest YouTube channel, amplified by his series “Cooking with Marshmello.” His channel averages 250 million views and gains 1.4 million subscribers every month.
Another aspect that gives him the edge is that he is an unsigned artist, choosing to rather strike deals per song, giving him the power of his musical creativity.
Success has also allowed him to upgrade his mask to a $55 000 helmet fitted with an internal air-conditioning system, programmable LED lights and its light as an 8-pound feather.
