Forbes just named the music industry’s top female earners of 2018. Beyoncecomes in the third position after Katy Perry (no. 1 with $83 million) and Taylor Swift (no. 2 with $80 million). Following the birth of her twins in June 2017, Beyonce managed to rack in $60 million. The mother of three increased her professional activity with the release of a joint album with Jay-Z in June 2018. It’s Love was supported by their successful On The Run II stadium tour.

Rihanna lands in the 7th position from the top with $37.5 million in earning. Since the singer hasn’t released a new album or even toured in the past year, a significant part of her income came from her ventures in beauty and fashion. Both her cosmetics brand Fenty and her SavageLingeriee line have been praised for their insistence on inclusivity. The focus on marketing towards women of all shapes, sizes, and complexion clearly paid off. Riri has also been working as an actor with her role in films like Ocean’s 8.
