Forbes Reveals The Highest-Paid Musicians Of 2020

Forbes has just published a list of the highest-paid musicians for 2020. The names included, well… let’s just say they’ll be of little to no surprise. At least in terms of the top 15. From then onwards, however, you may experience some mild fascination when discovering who actually made the cut.

Recently confirmed billionaire – and self-proclaimed multi-billionaire – Kanye West topped the 2K20 cohort. Contrary to the majority of this list, West has made his bones with his incredibly popular fashion line. The rest of the names, however, have sourced a large percentage of their income from touring – some even from streaming, i.e. Jay-Z, Drake, Rihanna, Taylor Swift.
