NAV Net Worth $700,000
NAV’s parents moved to Toronto, migrating from Punjab, India. He grew up very interested in music after he was bought a boom box for Christmas, and was also encouraged by his uncle to pursue a career in music. During high school, he started making and producing his own music, and producing beats for underground Toronto artists, and eventually also built his popularity through the website SoundCloud.
He was close friends with The Weeknd and Drake, who also found success in the music industry, leading him to seriously pursue the career. He released songs through SoundCloud including “Take Me Simple” which found a lot of popularity, and his net worth started to increase as he contributed and wrote for Drake, and was featured by Drake on radio. He also gained a lot of attention after Kylie Jenner posted a video lip syncing a single by NAV entitled “Myself”. In 2016, he collaborated with rapper Travis Scott in the song “Beibs in the Trap”, which was included in the album entitled “Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight”, which brought him considerable exposure as the song achieved platinum status, and in 2017, NAV was signed to XO and Republic Records.
NAV then released the debut self-titled mixtape which included the song “Some Way” featuring The Weeknd. His song “Myself” would become his most popular song to date. He also released another mixtape, collaborating with Metro Boomin, entitled “Perfect Timing”, and which also features several newcomers to the industry, so NAV’s net worth increased even further.
His style has been described as melodic and drowsy, but he also talks about a lot of issues that catch the attention of listeners. He earned a bit of controversy by using the “n” word in his songs – he mentioned that the neighborhood he grew up in casually used the term because of how they were multicultural, but decided to stop using the word due to the strong backlash.
For his personal life, not much is known about NAV’s romantic relationships, if any. He has mentioned that it is hard, since girls now just want him for his money. He is active on social media, having over 375,000 followers on Twitter and more than 900,000 followers on Instagram, as well as more than 7,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook.
