Billboard just released its annual list of the top moneymakers in music for 2015. There was only one other female who joined Taylor Swift in the top 10, and she’s also a favorite of the fashion industry: the supremely stylish Adele.
The rankings factored in last year’s album sales, streaming fees, publishing royalties, and tour revenue. Swift, of course, came in at number one, while Adele took the number nine spot (Kenny Chesney and The Rolling Stones rounded out the top three).
While the majority of Swift’s revenue came from her 1989 tour, Adele raked in the largest percentage from album sales, as she hadn’t started her tour before 2015 ended. Head over to Billboard to see the complete breakdown.
