“Everything Has Changed” for Taylor Swift, but one thing that’s still the same is that she’s still on top.
After releasing her smash LP “Red” in late 2012, she took home top honors on Billboard’s Money Makers 2014 list.
Swift made nearly $40 million in the past year from album sales, digital downloads, royalties, as well as tour revenue and sponsorships.
Coming in second was Kenny Chesney with almost $33 million, followed closely by Justin Timberlake with $31 million.
Pop acts finishing out the top 10 include Beyonce at no. 6 with $24 million, Maroon Five at no. 7 with $22 million and Pink with $20 million at no. 9.
Lower down on the list, which encompasses the top 40 revenue earners, are Justin Bieber, Rihanna, One Direction and more.
