American actor, singer-songwriter, record producer, and musician Lionel Ritchie is thought to have a 2013 nett worth of $200 million. He is also well-known for being a member of the Motown Records-signed band the Commodores.
With the release of his debut album, Lionel Richie, in 1982, Lionel Ritchie began his solo career after about 14 years of service with the Commodores. The #1 smash single “Truly” was born from the album. He was recognised as one of the most successful and well-liked balladeers of the 1980s as a result of the publication of his debut album, which sold more than four million copies.
Release of his sophomore album, Can’t Slow Down, which sold twice as many copies as his debut album, came next. He received two Grammy awards for it and was crowned Album of the Year. It gave rise to the song “All Night Long,” which reached the top of the US music charts. His subsequent albums, Dancing on the Ceiling, Back to Front, Louder Than Words, Time, Renaissance, Just for You, Coming Home, Symphonica is Rosso, Just Go, and Tuskegee eventually came out after it.
In addition to “Hello,” “Stuck on You,” “Penny Lover,” “Running with the Night,” “Say You, Say Me,” “We Are The World,” “Dancing on the Ceiling,” “Say You, Say Me,” “Ballerina Girl,” and “Se La,” he has also had success with other hits.
