The Just The Way You Are singer's performance with the Red Hot Chili Peppers was the most-watched half-time show ever with a staggering 115.3 million viewers - until it was beaten by Katy Perry earlier this year.

Since then the Grammy Award winner scored a huge worldwide number one with Mark Ronson on Uptown Funk.

Thanks to the previous Superbowl performance propelling album sales and a busy tour, the Hawaiian native debuted on the Forbes 100 list last year, in 13th place with estimated earnings of $60 million.

Bruno is currently working on his third studio album, and is reported to be working with Kanye West  on a track.
