Marshmello has only been a professional EDM artist for 4 years, yet he’s already richer than almost everyone in his profession. His face remains a mystery which is actually one of the many reasons for Mello’s speedy rise to stardom. For the first two years of his career, no one knew who he was. This was thanks to the giant marshmallow helmet that adorned his head and concealed his face. It was also a sure way to attract notice, partly concocted by his manager. But mostly it seems that Mello isn’t too concerned about how his identity is perceived. It’s all about the music, which is adored by millions of people. This is the main reason why he’s so successful – his music is universal, transcending the confines of EDM to reach a mainstream audience. This helps explain why he’s expected to make $50 million in 2019.
