Beyoncé has been named as the highest paid woman in the music industry once again, after picking up the title back in 2014. As Forbes has revealed Queen Bey raked in a whopping $105 million pre-tax between June 2016 and 2017.
The colossal figure is mostly due to sales of her record-breaking sixth album, Lemonade, as well as her Formation World Tour that hit forty cities around Europe and the US over sixth months last year.
Just behind Bey is Adele, whose album 25 and the accompanying tour earned her a tidy $69 million over the same period. Coming in third place is last year's top entry Taylor Swift with $44 million dollars.
Céline Dion is in fourth position ($42 million), followed by Jennifer Lopez ($38 million), Dolly Parton ($37 million), Rihanna ($36 million), Britney Spears ($34 million), Katy Perry ($33 million) and Barbra Streisand ($30 million).
A massive achievement for the woman of the music industry, it's still worth pointing out that of the 30 best-paid musicians of 2016, 23 were men. Fingers crossed things will balance out the years to come.
