Forbes magazine has named Taylor Swift the “Highest-Paid Woman in Music.”

For 12 months ending in July, Taylor earned $170 million. That’s twice the amount of the second place singer, Adele, who took home $80 million thanks to album sales and a sold-out world tour. Madonna earned $76.5 million and edged out Rihanna who earned $75 million. Beyonce placed fifth with $54 million in revenue, but her Formation World Tour will help propel her much higher when numbers are released a year from now.

Other women on the list include: J-Lo, Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Selena Gomez and Carrie Underwood.
