Another year, another Forbes list to top for Beyonce, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez, who all appear in the top 10 Highest Paid Women In Music rankings.
Beyoncé came in the 3rd, bringing home $60 million this year…and that’s after giving birth to the twins, Rumi and Sir. She collected a Coachella bag, as well as album and stadium tour bags with her husband, Jay Z. Despite all of the other ventures she is involved in, those three alone show how hard Beyonce works for her lifestyle.
Jennifer Lopez ranked number 6 on the list and made $47 million this year, coming from her Las Vegas residency and her judging seat on the show “World of Dance”. J. Lo also has a movie coming out next month entitled, “Second Act”, which may add some more zeros to her income next year.
Rihanna took the 7th spot on the list making $37.5 million in 2018, which is mostly thanks to her super popular #Fenty empire and lucrative #Puma collaboration because sis hasn’t released any music in almost 4 years. But it’s almost a guarantee that once she does drop, her earnings will skyrocket.
The highest paid woman in music went to #KatyPerry, who took home $83 million this year. The runner-up making $80 million in 2018 was #TaylorSwift.
