Taylor Swift is no longer the highest-paid woman in music, according to Forbes, who has been dethroned by none other than Beyoncé.
Queen Bey earned $105 million from June 2016 'til June 2017, double what she earned the year prior. The boost is due to her 2016 hit album Lemonade, as well as her quarter of a billion dollar-earning Formation tour. Adele comes in second place, with a tiny $69 million, followed by Taylor Swift at $44 million. Swift was the top of last year's list with a massive $170 million.
It's still pretty phenomenal for Taylor to remain so high up the list, considering she remained dormant for most of last year. Let's see if her recently released reputation album and upcoming tour will shoot her back into first place next year.
