best better woman win!
It may seem as though Taylor Swift has been the most powerful voice in music for a while now… but this is actually her first year officially on top.
Forbes just released their annual list of the Top 10 Highest Paid Female Musicians in the world on Wednesday — and TayTay's wildest dreams helped put her in first place with $170 MILLION!

Yeah, that's more than DOUBLE the next highest singer on the list… Adele!!
Of course, a majority of that money comes from 1989 World Tour ticket sales, but Taylor's ad campaigns, songwriting skills, and social media celeb status probably didn't hurt.
However, with TayTay rising to the top spot, that meant a dethroning for 2015's champ, Katy Perry — who fell from No. 1… FIVE spots all the way to No. 6!!!
So, who else made the list??
Ch-ch-check out all ten of Forbes' highest paid female musicians (below)!!!
1. Taylor Swift — $170 million
2. Adele — $80.5 million
3. Madonna — $76.5 million
4. Rihanna — $75 million
5. Beyoncé — $54 million
6. Katy Perry — $41 million
7. Jennifer Lopez — $39.5 million
