Beyonce and Rihanna makes the Forbes 2018 list as the highest earning women in music. 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. 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.
