Anthony’s new single is already closing in on nearly one million views on YouTube alone, as the singer is estimated to be making around “$40,000 a day from sales and streams of his music, according to the trade journal Hits.” Last week, Anthony said he had “brushed off” $8 million offers from “people in the music industry.”
