Taylor Swift Only woman in the list of the 10 highest paid musicians
According to rolling stone, Taylor Swift is in a league of her own after the publication unveiled its new list of the world’s highest-paid musicians for 2021.
A slew of top talent made the profit list. However, Swift is the only female artist to earn a top 10 spot.
Bruce Springsteen tops the list with $590 million, most of which comes after selling copyrights and master recordings to his longtime label, Sony. Jay-Z comes in at No. 2 with $470 million, while Paul Simon ranks at No. 3 with $260 million.
Rounding out the list of highest-paid musicians, Kanye West at $250 million; Ryan Tedder at $200 million; Red Hot Chili Peppers at $145 million; Lindsey Buckingham at $100 million; Motley Crue at $95 million; and country star Blake Shelton at $83 million.
The “Blank Space” singer ranks No. 10, with $80 million. The outlet awards the reissue of albums such as Red (Taylor’s version) and Fearless (Taylor version) as big moneymakers, not to mention its lucrative partnerships with Peloton and Starbucks in 2021.
This isn’t the first time Swift has been selected as the highest-paid artist. In 2019, Forbes operated Swift with an estimated revenue of $185 million.
While COVID-19 blunted the earning potential of most artists last year, rolling stone reports that Swift and her high-earning colleagues raked in a combined net worth of $2.3 billion last year.
