Jessie J's income skyrockets

Jessie J's income reportedly jumped $5 million in 2012, helping her to join the ranks of Britain's wealthiest musicians.

The English singer catapulted to fame in 2010 with her hit single Do It Like a Dude.

According to UK newspaper The Mirror, she is already earning seven figures.

The outlet reports Jessie’s 2012 income tallied $6.3 million last year.

The figure would mark a large increase for the singer after her earnings rose over $5 million from the previous 12 months.

Companies House records obtained by The Mirror show she paid herself almost $630,000 from two companies she owns.

Jessie J also earns a reported $314,000 per series as a judge on hit television singing competition The Voice.

Her net worth is now estimated at over $12.5 million.

The sum is still a far cry from getting Jessie to the top of the list.

According to an analysis published by the Sunday Times in April, Adele was number one among Britain and Ireland’s richest musicians under 30. The Skyfall singer reportedly boasted earnings of $46 million the previous year.

Jessie J revealed earlier this month she still feels new to the music scene.

The 25-year-old star still finds it “weird” to hear her music on the radio or in public places.

"I don't like listening to myself sing," she told BBC Radio 1. "It's weird listening to your own song, you'll be in Burger King or a theme park and you cringe."
