The highest paid artists of 2016 have been revealed

Breadwinner Her husband Jay-Z did not make the list this year as he did not tour or release new music in 2016 though his 4:44 album and tour will likely land him on it next year See how much money Bruce Springsteen made in 2016 (hint: it's a boatload)

Beyoncé, our No. 1 Money Maker of 2016, made roughly $54.7 million of her $62.1 million through her live performing - about 88% of her overall tally.

In addition to her cut of the tour profits, she also garnered $6.2 million dollars in royalties from her music.

Bruce Springsteen secured the third spot with $42.2 million, while the rest of the top ten featured big names including Drake, Adele, Coldplay, Justin Bieber, and Kanye West.

Oregon WR Carrington off team following DUI arrest
Carrington was stopped and arrested by EPD at 3:15 a.m. and taken to the Lane Country Jail for processing. Carrington, who graduated in June, is scheduled to appear in Eugene Municipal Court next week.

In 2015, when Springsteen played only a handful of shows, he did not crack Billboard's Top 50.

Meanwhile, while touring fueled the top 3 earners, Drake flexed his re-spins, taking the fourth spot at $37.3 million, including a gargantuan $18.1 million from streaming alone. Her album sales for her Grammy-winning project, Lemonade also did incredibly well, earning $4.3 million, followed by streaming and publishing. His album sales weren't as impressive as others, only making $926K, but his streaming and publishing deals seemed to make up for that with a combined $9.8 million. To Self Destruct, and the band owning their own masters.

It's not much of a surprise given her massive popularity and fan base, but the numbers are still astonishing as Queen B earned over $20 million more than the second act on the list Guns N Roses. But it's likely those same reasons that helped make his discography one of the top sellers previous year, earning the late rock legend $9.5 million in sales royalties - tops among all earners, outside of Metallica - with 1.3 million album sales and 387 million on-demand streams for his estate-owned catalog.
