Diddy And Beyonce Top Forbes' Annual Highest Paid 'Musicians' List

(Radio.com) Forbes has named Sean Combs, a.k.a. Diddy, as the highest paid "musician" of 2017. Beyonce brought in $105 million which earned her the number two spot on the annual list, and also made her the highest paid female in music.

According to pretax earnings between June 1, 2016 and June 1, 2017, Diddy cleared $130 million, with most of his wealth coming from the sale of a portion of his Sean John fashion line, his Ciroc vodka deal and this year's Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour.

Drake followed Queen Bey with $95 million and The Weeknd came in at number four with $92 million. View Forbes' top 10 highest-paid musicians of 2017 here.
