Pop superstar Beyonce made a stunning $105 million in 2016.

Beyonce led the list of highest paid women in music and it was even close, according to Forbes.

The other women at the top of the list were:

Adele: $69 million

Taylor Swift: $44 million

Celine Dion: $42 million

Jennifer Lopez: $38 million

Dolly Parton: $37 million

I don’t know how she made so much money. Beyonce is obviously huge with young women, but I had no idea she was popular to the tune of $105 million. That’s a lot of money to take to the bank.

Here’s a bold prediction for down the road. I guarantee Taylor Swift is at the top of this list next year. She just dropped her fire album “Reputation,” she’ll be on tour and that means it’s going to rain money. Shoutout to Beyonce for taking the top spot this year, but I hope she doesn’t plan on getting comfortable anytime soon.
