Jason Derulo is the undisputed celebrity king of Tik Tok. Clearly, he boasts a huge 22 million followers so many people are enjoying his clips while some feel that they’re corny; however, a recent interview is making the haters rethink their opinion.
There was a meme that went viral stating that the reason Jason tries so hard on the platform is that he’s making a cool $75k per video. In a recent interview, the singer revealed that he actually makes way more than that!
‘I feel like I thrive on TikTok because I can show me. TikTok is all about creation and I love building things from nothing. I think it’s tacky to say what I do make from them, but it’s far more than that. But I’m not going to say what it is.’
Suddenly, it makes so much sense as to why Jason takes the platform seriously. Just as popular influencers are paid big bucks for Instagram posts, Jason is really raking in the cash for his Tik Toks.
After the Shade Room reposted the interview, people in the comments had a lot to say about it.
‘Y’all always calling him corny but he making more money than all y’all.’ one follower wrote.

‘Oh… I wonder if he needs an assistant. He can do the Tik and I can Tok or whatever y’all kids do’ questioned another.
This person wrote: ‘a lil corny for his age and considering he supposed to be an actual music artist not TikTok star… but the man making bread so hey I can’t hate.’
While another person said: ‘I believe it. He’s putting his heart and soul into these d*** Tok Tiks.’
This person who has had a change of heart: ‘I still think that he’s a bit corny but now that I know he’s getting paid for it he’s less corny.’
What do you think about Jason’s cash cow?
