The Baddest & The Richest: Kanye West Is Officially The Highest Paid Musician Of 2020

How ironic is it that when sister-in-law Kylie Jenner gets dethroned from her title, Kanye West earned a title of his own not only as the highest paid musician of 2020 but also the second-highest paid celebrity overall, according to Forbes annual list.

Most artists on the list made a large percentage of their income from touring around the country, let alone most parts of the world and that certainly would not be the case for this year for obvious reasons. However what made up the bulk of West’s income is the crazy popular (…and expensive) sneaker collection line, Yeezys. But from Kanye to Jay Z and Drake to Rihanna and Taylor Swift, he isn’t the only one in on the hustle as all of them had made it on the top 20 of the list!

 Check out the top 10 for yourself!

  1. Kanye West – $170 million
  2. Elton John – $81 million
  3. Ariana Grande – $72 million
  4. The Jonas Brothers – $68.5 million
  5. The Chainsmokers – $68 million
  6. Ed Sheeran – $64 million
  7. Taylor Swift – $63.5 million
  8. Post Malone – $60 million
  9. Rolling Stones – $59 million
  10. Marshmello – $56 million

Well wasn’t that a shocker.
