Baddie Bey’s Bags, Tho: Beyoncé named Forbes Highest-Paid Woman in Music


Queen Bey is busy lording over the likes of Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Adele, as she receives Forbes highest honors as the Highest-Paid Woman in Music.


Pushing pass the more petite pay stubs of all other lady luminaries, Jay-Z’s 36-year-old “Sorry” singing spouse commanded a staggering $105 million in 2017, placing the multi-platinum selling icon head and shoulders above of her competitors.


Coupling the wild success of her sixth No. 1 album, Lemonade, with the quarter of a billion dollars amassed via her Formation World Tour, Yonce—who, in June, welcomed twins Rumi and Sir Carter into her and HOV’s growing brood— enjoyed a $44 million lead ahead of roster runner-up, Adele.

A distant second on the list, the “Rolling In The Deep” bellower rolled in an impressive $69 million in earnings, thanks to grossing seven figures nightly on her first proper tour since 2011.

Kanye West’s greatest detractor and former list topper, Taylor Swift, secured her No. 3 spot on the Highest-Paid Woman in Music chart with an income of $44 million this year—a far cry from the $170Ms she took home in 2016.

Forbes created its list of coin-happy crooners by looking at each artists’ pretax income from June 1, 2016 through June 1, 2017—including fees charged by agents, managers, and lawyers.
