Forbes released their annual list of highest paid musicians Wednesday and Taylor Swift topped the list earning $170 million within the past year. One Direction came in at No. 2 with $110 million, followed by Adele with $80.5 million, and Madonna with $76.5 million.
Rihanna rounded out the top 5 though, raking in $75 million, thanks in large part to her wildly successful ANTI World Tour, her collaboration with Puma (those velvet creepers drop December 8th) and her endorsement deals with Dior, Samsung, and Stance. The 28-year-old singer increased her earnings big time as she only made about $26 million last year.
Jay Z and Beyoncé took home almost the same amount of money in 2016; Bey earned $54 million, Jay $53.5 million, putting them at No. 17 and No. 18, respectively. Dr. Dre and Katy Perry tied for the No. 25 position, with $41 million each and Drake closed out the list at No. 30 with $38.5 million.
Forbes’ ranking measures income from June 1, 2015, to June 1, 2016 before deducting management fees and taxes. The figures are based on data received from Pollstar, Nielsen, and the RIAA, as well as information from managers, agents, lawyers, and some of the celebrities listed.
Sky’s the limit for Rih.
