Beyonce is Forbes' highest paid woman in music

R&B sensation Beyonce has dethroned fellow musician Taylor Swift as the highest-earning female musician of 2017, according to an annual Forbes list.

The report attributed her success in 2017 to the release of her sixth studio album, "Lemonade, ' as well as her 'Formation World Tour", which grossed a quarter billion dollars. She also has her own Ivy Park fashion line and other business interests.

Adele took second place on the list, having made a total of $69 million-mostly from her recent 25 tour, which concluded in late June 2017.

Every decision is for the best of the team and them. "When you lose, always you try to analyse and then try to improve what was wrong".

Beyonce's earnings were boosted by her Formation world tour previous year, which Forbes says grossed $US250 million ($NZ367 million). Consider her highly anticipated album Reputation dropped on November 10, 2017-after Forbes' cutoff date-it's likely that she'll take first place on the magazine's 2018 list.

Celine Dion ($42 million) and Jennifer Lopez ($38 million) round out the top five, with both women raking in the bucks with Las Vegas residencies. Forbes says the 71-year-old brought in $US37 million ($NZ54 million) with the help of 63 shows during the yearlong period. It also looked at data from the Pollstar, the Recording Industry Association of America and tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan.
