Thanks to Beyonce’s hit album “Lemonade”and her world tour for the album, she earned a whopping $105 million in pre-tax income out earning Adele and Taylor Swift who both earned $52 million and $33 million. Not only did Taylor swift not make the cut for this year but she was third place after Adele.
Although there are speculations that Taylor Swift might be coming right back on top with the release of her album and subsequent world tour and her scheduled return to the UK next month for a huge appearance at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball, alongside the likes of Stefflon Don and Ed Sheeran.
