She makes music. And she makes money making music — lots of it. So much, that according to Forbes, Beyoncé is the highest paid woman in music.

The magazine reports Beyoncé earned $105 million the yearlong stretch from June 2016 to June of this year. Her earnings were boosted by her "Formation" tour last year. Forbes says it grossed $250 million dollars — in other words, a quarter of a billion dollars.
