The end of 2019 is fast approaching. Indeed, you had the impression that it was yesterday that you barely stood up? Could not speak and make your most beautiful declarations of love, under the influence of alcohol, on the occasion of New Year’s Eve? Well it’s been a year already. Because yes, in a few days, Santa Claus will arrive. Then, a few days later, we will go through 2020. An opportunity to take stock of the past year. Exactly Forbes has just revealed how much Beyoncé, Drake, or Kanye West, had won in 2019.

If you did not know it, at the end of the year, the famous economic magazine unveils the ranking of the richest people on the planet over the past year. Not surprisingly, many artists are present in this ranking. Between the sales of their albums, their concerts, and other products, the Beyoncé, Kanye West, or Migos are real chickens with golden eggs

But by the way, who is at the top of the ranking this year, in the category of “musicians”? We can immediately tell you that it is not about any person mentioned above. Neither Beyoncé nor Kanye West are in first place, although they are very close to it.

First of all, it seems good to indicate how Forbes establishes his ranking. Exactly, the media took the trouble to explain everything on its French version. Our confreres therefore let us know: “To determine our ranking, we take into account the income from the tours. Music and outside commercial enterprises. Our list measures pre-tax income and does not deduct agent fees. Managers or lawyers. This is how they can classify Beyoncé and the other artists in the rankings.

But who is first in 2019? This is an artist who has always been able to bring back a lot of money, blonde, who is currently in “war” with his boss of his old Label. You recognized it? Yes Taylor Swift is in first place by raising $ 185 million over the year. Kanye West fans can rest assured. Kim K’s husband is right behind ($ 150 million), in second place. Then comes Ed Sheeran ($ 110 million). But where is Beyoncé, Queen?

You have to go slightly lower in the rankings to find Jay-Z’s wife. Indeed, Queen B is just in 6th place. As the artist does things well, she decided (it is of course a coincidence pure and simple: note) to be in the same place as her husband a tie. Having raised 81 million dollars each.
