Forbes names Beyoncé as the world’s highest-paid woman in music


ABC/Image Group LABeyoncé is officially the world’s highest-paid woman in music this year, according to Forbes magazine

The “Upgrade U” singer raked in a massive $105 million, pre-tax, according to information compiled from June 1, 2016 through June 1, 2017 by Forbes.   

That income came largely from her Formation World Tour and Lemonade album sales. 

Rihanna landed on the list at number seven, hauling in $36 million, thanks to touring, appearing in films and on hit TV shows such as Bates Motel, working as Puma’s creative director and taking time out of her whirlwind schedule to develop her first-ever makeup range, Fenty Beauty. 

Other celebs like Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry round out Forbes‘ annual Highest-Paid Women in Music list.
