Beyonce Tops Money Makers 2016 List

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)

Look at the financial breakdowns of the top earners on our Top Money Makers of 2016 list, and you'll notice a mostly consistent theme: Everybody's making their money through touring.

Queen Bey jumped up from not being on the list in the previous year, while between album cycles, to first - though that should come as know surprise given the 35-year-old artist's critically acclaimed and highly personal "Lemonade" visual album. Beyoncé's major windfall this year came from her Formation World Tour, which clocked in at $54.7 million, according to Forbes.

Guns N' Roses landed at #2 on the tally after bringing in $42.3 million, thanks mainly to the hard rockers' Not in This Lifetime Tour, featuring the return of founding members Slash and Duff McKagan. Here are five of the biggest examples.

Unexpected Guns N Roses reunion tour which lead singer Axl Rose said would never happen brought in the bulk of the band's $42.3 million dollars in earnings seen here on July 7

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

Drake jumped 32 spots from his position past year to end up as the fourth biggest earner with $37.3 million, over $18 million of that coming from his albums being played on streaming services. Adele's tour in 2016 was the fourth-highest grossing, moving 2.2 million albums in the United States alone more than any artist alone- except Prince. He ranked at the No. 4 seed, with his streaming sales for his 20-track playlist, VIEWS, earning him $18.1 million. But it's likely those same reasons that helped make his discography one of the top sellers past 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.
