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

YONCE TAUGHT ME…

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.

YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS….

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.

BOOOOM…

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.

PEEP THE FULL LIST…

#10 – Barbera Streisand, $30 millio

#9 – Katy Perry, $33 million

#8 – Britney Spears, $34 million

#7 – Rihanna, $36 million

#6 – Dolly Parton, $37 million

#5 – Jennifer Lopez, $38 million

#4 – Celine Dion, $42 million

#3 – Taylor Swift, $44 million

#2 – Adele, $69 million
