Beyonce earned $105 million from record sales & a world tour (she also has her own Ivy Park fashion line).

Adele brought in an estimated $69 million, despite having no major endorsements.

Swift made $44 million (down from $170M in 2016). But don’t feel too bad for her – those numbers will rise big time over the next 12 months – her new album “Reputation” is the best-selling album of 2017 – and she’ll make bank with her upcoming tour.

Here’s the TOP 5 from Forbes’ list:

1 – Beyonce $105M
2 – Adele $69M
3 – Taylor Swift $44M
4 – Celine Dion $42M
5 – Jennifer Lopez $38M
