“Billboard” has just come out with their list of the Top 50 Money Makers of 2016, and we probably shouldn’t be too surprised by who is sitting handily on top.
Of course, it’s Beyoncé, who lands at number one with earnings of $62.1 million last year, followed by Guns N’ Roses at two with $42.3 mil, Bruce Springsteen at three with $42.2 mil, Drake at four with $37.3 million and Adele at five with $37 mil.
One person who surprisingly didn’t make the cut this year is Taylor Swift, despite topping it in 2015, 2013 and 2011. It's likely becuase she didn't put an album out or tour last year.
