Forbes has released its annual list of the world’s highest paid musicians to wrap up the year and with the kind of year that Dr. Dre has had, it’s no wonder that he tops the list with a total earning of $620 million.

According to Forbes, that number also marks the largest single-year haul of any musician, ever.

Dr. Dre’s payday gives him the widest margin in history between the first and second spots on list—half a billion dollars separate him from the No. 2 earner, Beyoncé, who pulled in $115 million. Her most lucrative year yet comes courtesy of her Mrs. Carter Show tour, a surprise album and endorsements with the likes of Pepsi and H&M .

Also on the list is The Eagles with $100 million, Bon Jovi with $82 million, Bruce Springsteen with $80 million, Katy Perry with $40 million, Miley Cyrus with $36 million and Lady Gaga ($33 million).

Justin Bieber ($80 million) and One Direction ($75 million) are the only acts under age 30 to make the top ten; Taylor Swift finished at No. 11 ($64 million).

    I guess he’s not African lol, although if he were born and raised his country would be pin pointed, but because he’s American they chooses to exclude that from the article. This is just a fun fact about how Africans continuously create this divide amongst one another on both spectrums.
