Despite topping every money-related list this year, pop singer Beyonce missed the mark by a wide margin on the only list that counts in 2014 (no, not Forbes).
Beyonce raked in $115 million in record and tickets sales in 2014. But that wasn't enough to surpass a musician who outearned her by about half a billion dollars. Click the link below to see who it is.
From Yahoo Music:
Dr. Dre took home $620 million this year before taxes, thanks largely to that deal, making him the world’s top-earning musician of 2014. More remarkably, that number also marks the largest single-year haul of any musician, ever.
“It’s safe to say headphones is a good business,” said DJ Khaled, one of hip-hop’s top earners.
Dr. Dre’s payday gives him the widest margin in history between the first and second spots on our top-earning musicians list—half a billion dollars separate him from the No. 2 earner, Beyoncé, who pulled in $115 million. Her most lucrative year yet comes courtesy of her Mrs. Carter Show tour, a surprise album and endorsements with the likes of Pepsi and H&M.
Now watch Beyonce come out with her own line of designer headphones.
