Forbes just released their list of the top female earners in the music industry for the year 2018.
Katy Perry and Taylor Swift occupy the first and second position with 83 million dollars and 80 million dollars respectively while Beyonce comes in at number three with 60 million dollars. Many see Beyonce’s number three position as a good feat, considering she hasn’t done so much professionally since the birth of her twins in June, 2017.
Rihanna occupies the number seven position with 37.5 million dollars in earning. She is in the 7th position because she hasn’t released a new album or toured the world in recent time. She has not done too much in the past days musically and she is only able to grab this position as a result of the proceeds from her beauty and fashion ventures; Fenty and Savage Lingeriee.
