The rapper and business mogul Dr. Dre top the list of World’s Highest-Paid Musicians of 2014 on Wednesday, after pulling in $620 million before taxes, according to Forbes.
Dr. Dre made more money in 2014 than any musician ever, and he didn’t even release an album.
Second, Beyonce raked in $115 million in 2014, thanks to her sold out Mrs. Carter Show tour, a popular surprise album, and major lucrative contracts with retailer H&M and Pepsi. It’s the “Halo” singer’s most profitable year ever, but it didn’t put her close to Dre’s mark.
The third act to earn over $100 million in 2014 was The Eagles, with most of the band’s money coming from its History of the Eagles tour. Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen rounded out the top five, making over $80 million each.
