Who Runs the World? Beyoncé, Who Tops Forbes List

Talk about securing the bag! Beyoncé continues to do that and then some

The megastar was recently named the world’s highest-paid woman in music by Forbes. Surpassing any competition by a landslide, the “Drunk in Love” singer made $105 million before taxes from June 2016 to June 2017, based on sales from her Lemonade project and The Formation World Tour. Let’s not forget her thriving Ivy Park fashion line and other business interests. Sis is running the world for sure!

Adele took home second (as if being second on a Forbes list is an insult) with a whopping $69 million. Taylor Swift came in third with $44 million. Rihanna, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Dolly Parton and Barbra Streisand placed in the top 10 as well. RiRi may come a few spots next year with the success of her Fenty Beauty . . . only time will tell!
