Beyoncé Named 2016's Highest Paid Artist by Billboard: See Full List

Beyoncé reigns supreme on Billboard's list for top earning artists in 2016, raking in $62.1 million last year, largely thanks to her blockbuster Formation World Tour.

Just Bey-low on the list are Guns 'N' Roses and Bruce Springsteen respectively, who both notched just north of $42 million, almost entirely through touring.
Meanwhile, while touring fueled the top 3 earners, Drake flexed his re-spins, taking the fourth spot at $37.3 million, including a gargantuan $18.1 million from streaming alone. While Kanye (9th) and Rihanna (12th) also had incredible streaming numbers, but not nearly enough to top the "6 God" singer, who's gotten his "One Dance" played billions of times.
Adele (duh), Coldplay, Luke Bryan, and Justin Bieber were all among the top earners, with Kenny Chesney rounding out the top 10.
