The One Kiss singer, given the opening line in the Children In Need charity single, has seen her wealth double in the past year, up from £11.8million.
She also has £17.3million cash in the bank, up from £8.6million 12 months ago, according to the figures of Dua Lipa Live LLP, filed with Companies House.
An industry source said of the 24-year-old: “Dua has quietly gone about her business, and is now one of pop’s most successful performers.
“The latest accounts show she could be heading towards the same earnings bracket as Ed Sheeran.
“Given she is five years younger, the world really is her oyster. If she continues at this trajectory, she will be rivalling Adele soon.”
And the insider added: “Dua’s work ethic is quite astonishing, and she is very popular with all at her record label.
“She could well become the country’s biggest pop star.”
Lipa released her second album, Future Nostalgia, last month during lockdown.
The cover of Foo Fighters’ Times Like These, was played on Thursday’s Children In Need TV special.
