Her newly released "Reputation" album is expected to move her up the list in 2018.

According to Forbes, Beyonce's chart-topping sixth studio album, "Lemonade" and her Formation World Tour made her the highest-paid woman pulling an impressive $105 million pre-tax. Adele follows in second place with £52.1 million, while Taylor Swift comes in third with £33.2 million.

It is a question of timing: thanks to the huge cardboard box of her album 1989, and its tour around the world, Taylor Swift dynamitait past year the ranking of the singers are better paid.

Taylor Swift - who was the highest-paid woman previous year - has slipped down the ranks to third position after pulling in $44 million pre-tax from June 2016 until June 2017. The magazine didn't take out fees from agents, lawyers and managers, and gathered information from Nielsen SoundCan, the RIAA, Pollstar and "industry insiders". Beyonce and Adele reportedly earned tens of millions more than the other women on the list, however the remaining women aren't making chump change.

Jennifer Lopez rounded off the top five with $38 million, which she made through her gigs in Sin City and her new show "World of Dance", which she produces and judges.

Congrats to all the women on the list!
