The rapper and producer can thank his 20 percent stake in headphone maker Beats Electronics for the bulk of his $950 million in estimated earnings. Dre and business partner Jimmy Iovine sold the company to Apple for $3 billion in 2014.
Swift came in second place with earnings reportedly around $825 million, with Beyoncé trailing behind with $685 million. Rounding out the top five are: U2 with $675 million, and Sean “Diddy” Combs who made an estimated $605 million.
