In 2021, Pink Pantheress rose to music superstardom with her unique stage name and talent for creating straightforward songs.

Her debut project, To Hell With It, is only 19 minutes long, showcasing her preference for shorter songs. In May 2024, she spoke to ABC News about her decision to create songs that are shorter than most TikToks or Instagram reels, stating that a song doesn't need to be longer than 2 minutes 30 seconds, and traditional song structures like the "bridge" are unnecessary in today's music.

“We don’t need to repeat a verse, we don’t need to have a bridge — we don’t need it!” Pink Pantheress declared. “We don’t need a long outro.”

The “Pain” singer’s controversial take on how a song should flow caused many music lovers to object to her take. However, it seems like Pink Pantheress is taking her hot takes to the bank.

Here’s what to know about Pink Pantheress’s net worth and more details about the succinct songstress.

What is Pink Pantheress’s net worth?

Pink Pantheress started in the music business while attending college in London. During her time there, she posted several songs to her TikTok. Soon, one of her songs, “Break It Off,” went viral, and her debut mixtape, To Hell With It.

In 2022, Pink Pantheress released another single, “Boy’s A Liar.” The 2:12 track initially saw success in the UK but exploded in the U.S. once Ice Spice got on the “Boy’s A Liar 2” remix in 2023.

“Boy’s A Liar” became Pink Pantheress’s first dive into the Billboard Hot 100. She then followed up with her album, Heaven Knows, in 2023. Pink Pantheress has reportedly enjoyed the fruits of that labor, as her net worth reportedly stands at $1 million, proving there’s plenty of money to be made in songs that get to the point.

How did Pink Pantheress get her stage name?

Born Victoria Beverly Walker, Pink Pantheress developed her stage name before sharing her music on TikTok. The story goes that, while watching an episode of the ITV quiz show The Chase, she discovered her stage name, “Pantheress,” which was the name for a female panther.

However, once she realized someone was already using the name, she added “pink” to it, and the rest is history.

“I was trying to make an account on TikTok, and I wanted it to just be ‘Pantheress,’" Pink Pantheress shared during her ABC News interview in May 2024. “It was taken, and I was just like, 'This is a throwaway account anyway, so let me just put pink in front 'cause I love the film [The Pink Panther]. "I really was planning to change it.”

As we know, Pink Pantheress didn’t change her stage name and probably won’t for some time. Like her songs, her name creates a buzz that hopefully won’t end anytime soon!
