Beyonce Dethrones Taylor Swift To Be The Highest Paid Woman In Music According To Forbes 

Queen Bey takes the crown on the Forbes list.

Beyoncé has finally dethroned Taylor Swift to be the highest-paid woman in music with a colossal $105 million pre-tax, according to Forbes.

LEMONADE and the very lucrative “Formation Tour” added to this massive sum, which was made even more impressive by the time that Queen Bey took off while pregnant with her twins, Rumi and Sir.

Adele said “Hello” to the list, as well. Coming in second, the 25 hitmaker earned $69 million with her latest album and its accompanying tour. It was her first proper jaunt since 2011. Meanwhile, Taylor Swift placed third with $44 million. Thanks to her new album, Reputation, her total should go up even more next year

Elsewhere, Celine Dion ($42 million) and Jennifer Lopez ($38 million) round out the top 5, followed by Dolly Parton ($37 million), Rihanna ($36 million), Britney Spears ($34 million), and Katy Perry ($33 million). Barbra Streisand comes in at No. 10 with $30 million.
