Highest-Paid Female Singers

How did the “Me” singer land such a windfall? Much of her income comes from her Reputation stadium tour, which grossed a document $266 million in the United States, the journal notes. Plus, she signed a nine-figure deal with Republic Records, saying the move in November 2018.

Also included in the Forbes’ top 10 are Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.
