More and more women are breaking through into the world of pop and hip-hop stardom, but few of them make it to the Forbes’ top 10 highest paid women in music.

Not surprising, Taylor Swift sits at the very top, but the true shock lies in the numbers.  Swift earned an astonishing $100 million more than Beyonce, who sits at number two.  Here’s the list:

  • Taylor Swift – $185 million
  • Beyonce – $81 million
  • Rihanna – $62 million
  • Pink – $57 million
  • Katy Perry – $57 million
  • Ariana Grande – $48 million
  • Dion – $40 million
  • Lady Gaga – $40 million
  • Jennifer Lopez – $40 million
  • Shakira – $35 million

Nicki Minaj, Cardi B and young Billie Eilish are set to challenge the list for this year’s top 10, but they have lots of touring to do to catch the leaders.
