Taylor Swift had one hell of a 2015!
With the mega success of her Grammy-winning album 1989, and her epically lucrative 1989 World Tour, the New Romantics songstress was the top earner of last year!
Swifty absolutely slayed the competition, earning a whopping $73.5 million largely thanks to her tour — which cashed in $61.7M for her 2015 haul.
But other factors like album sales and streaming sales helped — and even Ryan Adams' 1989 cover album helped make the pop star the top earner of publishing royalties!
While Swift's success isn't that surprising, the rest of the top ten earners may be…

Is Sam Smith off the market?!
According to a new report, the crooner is no longer single and ready to mingle! Instead, it seems as though the soulful singer might be dating Jay Camilleri!
A source tells The Sun that the 23-year-old and the male model have started talking now that the English artist appears to be taking a brief break from the entertainment industry.
This rumored relationship hasn't been going on for very long, but the insider explained that things are looking good for this cute couple:
"It might be early days with him and Jay, but their dates have been very promising."
The confidante confessed that these two have also recently connected digitally too, adding:
Who could say no to a friend like Meghan?!
Meghan Trainor may have conquered radio stations when her debut album Title dropped back in 2014, but there's actually another A-Lister that we need to thank for getting new music out of the No singer.
As you may remember, the 22-year-old was forced to cancel her tour last year when she found out she had a hemorrhaged vocal cord, but luckily she wasn't the first Grammy-winning singer to need the surgery!
In fact, Meghan actually looked to Sam Smith for help when she found out that she had to go under the knife!
