BEYONCE AND RIHANNA MAKE IT TO TOP 10 IN THE FORBES LIST OF HIGHEST-PAID WOMEN IN MUSIC
Forbes released its 2018 list of the highest-paid women in music on Monday, revealing that Beyoncé and Rihanna had made the top 10.
After topping the list last year with an eye-popping $105 million dollars pretax, Beyonce landed in third place on the 2018 list with an earning of $60 million. She made most of her money through her iconic Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters’ On The Run II Tour.
Coming ahead of Beyonce were Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, who earned $83 million and $80 million respectively.
Rihanna came in a respectable 7th place behind P!nk, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Lopez. The beauty mogul earned $37.5 million this year, despite not having released any music. Most of her money came from her cosmetics and lingerie lines.
