Giveon Net Worth $5 million

What Is Giveon’s Net Worth?

Giveon is a California-born and raised R&B singer and songwriter who has a net worth of $5 million. He rose to fame with the 2020 hit single Chicago Freestyle, thanks to his collaboration with megastar rapper and singer Drake. The driven young artist knew he needed to capitalize on that early success, and capitalize he did.

He has since released several Eps, and been nominated for a few major awards—like a Grammy or seven!!—and gone viral on TikTok for his 2021 hit single, Heartbreak Anniversary.

The official video has more than 150 million views on YouTube.

Haven’t you heard it?

What about Justin Bieber’s 2021 hit, Peaches? Giveon’s on that, too.

That’s not all—he’s also reached the Top 10 on the US Top R&B Albums chart, been certified Platinum by RIAA, and debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Hot 100 charts.

Here’s what else we know about this R&B hitmaker.

The Origin Story


Giveon Dezmann Evans was born in Long Beach, California, on February 21, 1995.

He and his two brothers were raised by their mom, who he credits with encouraging his passion for music and keeping them safe from the pressures of society in a low-income area.

Evans says that his mom kept him and his siblings protected from the pressures of gang culture, and was hard on her kids to be sure they stayed in school and aimed higher than what was going on around them.

Giveon says the middle school was awkward. The beautiful singing voice he’d always used at birthday parties, and impromptu shows at home was changing. “It was baritone [and] I had no idea how to use it.”

He attended Long Beach Polytechnic High School, and then enrolled at the Grammy Museum for a music education program when he turned 18. It was here that he discovered Frank Sinatra—a baritone like him. He says that voice was inspiring to his teenaged self.

He gained confidence with his voice, and the rest was history.

To Post…Or Not To Post


Giveon was invited to fill a slot on Baby Rose and Snoh Aalegra’s tour—but there was a catch: he only had two original songs.

He quickly started drafting tunes based on the cities the tour stopped in.

One of those was Chicago Freestyle—an eerie, haunting, velvet smooth song that Giveon posted to Instagram.

His new manager, Simon Gebrelul, told him to delete it.

Gebrelul, a close friend of Drake’s and Sevn Thomas’s manager, said he felt bad at the time, but that the post was Giveon’s most popular on social media. He couldn’t be giving it away for free.

Gebrelul shared it with Drake, who used the clip on his 2020 Dark Lane Demo Tapes album.

400 million Spotify streams later, Giveon’s feature on a Drake album was the breakout he needed.

On The Road To Greatness


It was one thing for Evans to discover an artist like him, but he still had a deep love for the kind of music his mom had played growing up—Anita Baker, Sade, Boys II Men, and artists with all the fancy vocal tricks.

He had to cut the strings that tied him to the belief that being an artist meant doing all the vocal acrobatics.

Frank Sinatra didn’t sing like that. He was a powerhouse, but he knew how to work with his voice.

Evans was like nobody else on the music scene at that time—and legendary producer / songwriter Antonio Dixon knew it. After Evans posted his Chicago Freestyle on Instagram, he caught the producer’s attention.

Dixon, who has worked with icons like Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, and Toni Braxton, describes Giveon’s voice as having “a richness to it; it’s really warm.”

Mjeema Pickett—head of R&B and Soul at Spotify—was next to catch on to this young California kid’s skills. “I wasn’t expecting his voice to sound like that,” she recalls.

Sevn Thomas—who produced Rihanna’s Work—is another fan. On the singer’s 24th birthday, he showed up to meet Thomas and another producer for an audition.

They scheduled another session with the singing sensation, and recorded Like I Want You—it became his first radio success.

And The Award Goes To…

Giveon’s hard work was paying off.

Throughout 2021 and 2022, the young up and comer, who has been compared to Sam Smith and his musical idol, Frank Sinatra, has been nominated for multiple awards.

2021 brought about a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Albums—Take Time—and MTV Music Award nominations for Best New Artist, Best Collaboration, Best Pop, Best Editing, Song of Summer, and Best R&B.

2022 brought more of the same, with Grammy nominations for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance, Best Music Video, and Best R&B Song.

There were also NAACP Image Award nominations for Outstanding New Artist, Outstanding Male Artist, and Outstanding Album.


Giveon was linked to actress and singer Justine Skye from late 2020, after the pair were spotted on a trip to Jamaica.

They were spotted out again in February the following year in Brooklyn, NY, before going Instagram-official with their relationship in June 2021.

The relationship ended in late 2021, with Skye saying on her Wine Down Wednesday Instagram Live that she found out he was texting and seeing other women while they were together. She called him out and the pair broke up.

Evans has since been linked to several Instagram models and singers, although he hasn’t gone on record to say he’s dating anyone new.


Giveon is 5 feet 8 inches (172 cm) tall.
