Read on to find out more about Levine’s net worth, kids, wife, and height among other facts of his life.
Who is Adam Levine and How Old is He?
Adam was born on March 18, 1979, in Los Angeles, California. His full given name is Adam Noah Levine. While the musician is of Jewish ancestry, he does not practice Judaism neither does he observe Jewish customs. This is probably so because his parents got divorced when he was only 7 years old.
He attended the Brentwood High School with bandmates, Jesse and Mickey. Later, he proceeded to Five Towns College with Jesse for further studies but ended up quitting his studies after just one semester to pursue his career as a musician.
Over the years, Adam Levine and other members of the Maroon 5 band have had quite a successful musical career and have recorded a total of 6 studio albums from 2002 to 2017. The single Makes me wonder from their album It Won’t Be Soon Before Long won a Grammy Award in 2006. The rest of their studio albums include Hands All Over, Overexposed, and Red Pill Blues.
In 2011, they released a digital single Move like Jagger which became an international success selling over 8 million copies. A few years later (in 2014), the band dropped the album V which also included chart-topping singles like Maps and Animals. Red Pills Blues was their 6th studio album, it was released in 2017 and it featured hits songs like What lovers do and Wait.
However, Maroon 5 was not Adam Levine’s first attempt at a successful music career. As far back as 1994, he and 3 of his high school buddies; Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden, and Ryan Dusick formed a band called Kara’s Flowers (named after a girl they had a collective crush on). Their first album Fourth World released in 1997 was not successful, hence the band split. They regrouped again in 2000 changing their name to Maroon 5 and adding another guitarist, James Valentine. This addition was meant to free up Adam Levine to act more efficiently as the Front Vocalist.
Levine has collaborated with many other artists like the Ying Yang Twins, Kanye West, Alice Keys, and 50 Cents. He has also taken part in an awareness program for Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and testicular cancer (where he actually posed nude!). Adam is also an LGBT rights activist, this is not surprising as his brother Michael is gay.
Details of His Net Worth
In February 2012, he founded his own record label which he called the 222 Records. Some of the artists signed to the label include Rozzi Crane, Actor Matthew Morrison, Diego Boneta, and Tony Luca. Not satisfied, the musician diversified and went into fashion, launching men’s wears in collaboration with a Philippino based clothing line called Bench. The following year, he got into a partnership with Sear Holding to float his Apparel and accessories in conjunction with other stars like Nicki Minaj.
As though that was not enough, he veered into Fragrance and perfume production in 2013, collaborating with ID Perfume to create his own unique scent for both male and female which was packaged in a microphone shaped container and sold in Macy stores.
Apparently, Adam Levine has a lot of things generating income for him apart from music. At the moment, it’s pretty a hard call to tell the exact worth of his wealth. Nonetheless, several sources have estimated his net worth within the range of $50 and $90 million.
