Stormzy fans went wild with the release of his brand new song last month, nearly three years since the rapper's last solo release.
Mel Made Me Do It, which will feature on Stormzy's upcoming album, sent the internet into a frenzy.
The 11 minute music video for the song featured an array of star-studded cameos from the likes of José Mourinho, Usain Bolt, Jonathan Ross and Dina Asher-Smith.
Another familiar face to make an appearance alongside Stormzy was documentarian Louis Theroux, who recently enjoyed his own musical success after an old rap he came up with went viral on TikTok.
Now, Stormzy is set to open up to Louis for his new BBC series Louis Theroux Interviews.
As the rapper has a revealing conversation about his life and career, here's how much money he's amassed since rising to fame.
What is Stormzy's net worth?
According to the 2022 Sunday Times Rich List Stormzy's net worth currently sits at an estimated £26million.
This is £2million up on 2021, despite the fact that he was yet to release new music by the time the Rich List was published back in August.
It's believed that the majority of his wealth has come from music sales and touring and that a performance at the Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix last year could have provided a big boost to his income.
The rapper is also expected to add to his wealth this year as he releases his third album.
This Is What I Mean is set to be released on November 25 and follows his 2019 album Heavy Is the Head, which debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart before topping the chart in January 2020 and being awarded Gold certification.
Stormzy's huge charitable donations and £10million pledge
As well as revealing the wealthiest people in the UK, The Sunday Times has also revealed the most charitable, with Stormzy making the list.
The grime artist sits at number 11 on The Sunday Times Giving List 2022, having donated 4.58% of his wealth.
Over the next 10 years, Stormzy has said that he plans to donate £10million to charitable causes through his Merky Foundation.
A pledge on the foundation's website states: "At #Merky, we have always used our brand to elevate, support and amplify the issues and the voices of the black community.
"To continue and expand upon our activism and philanthropic work, #Merky Foundation pledges £10 million over 10 years, to organisations, charities & movements that are committed to fighting for racial equality, justice reform and black empowerment within the UK.
"#Merky will forever remain devoted to improving and safeguarding the lives of those within the black community and this is just the beginning of our lifetime commitment to financially and wholeheartedly back these causes."
In 2018 the Merky Foundation launched the Stormzy Scholarships, which have provided financial support to two Black students at Cambridge University every year, before the scheme was expanded in 2021.
The university has since announced that a total of 10 Black students who started their studies this autumn have been awarded Stormzy scholarships.
In 2020 the Merky Foundation also donated £500,000 to the Black Heart Foundation’s ‘Each Day. Every Day’ campaign, launched in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.
