Katy Perry has topped Forbes magazine’s 2018 list of the highest-paid women in music, with earnings of $83 million (£64 million).

Katy was followed in the list by Taylor Swift, who placed second with pre-tax earnings of $80 million (£62 million). Forbes noted that while many may have expected Taylor to top the annual financial breakdown, many of her Reputation Stadium Tour dates fell outside of the June-June time period. Despite that, the launch of Taylor's new album Reputation saw her top the charts worldwide, selling two million copies in its opening week, and it undoubtedly contributed to her still impressive bank balance.

The top three of Forbes’ 2018 list was rounded out by Beyonce, who raked in $60 million (£46 million) thanks to her performance at Coachella earlier this year and her joint album with husband JAY-Z. Much like Taylor, Beyonce’s On The Run II tour fell outside of the time period looked at by Forbes, meaning it will be reflected in their 2019 list.

Battling it out for number one are Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, Swift brought in $80 million but couldn’t outdo Katy Perry who is the highest earning woman in music with $83 million.

Figures are for pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018, before deducting fees for agents, managers, lawyers and estate executors. Sources include Nielsen SoundScan, NPD BookScan, insider interviews and Forbes estimates. Additional reporting by Natalie Robehmed and Rebecca Lerner.

Full List:

1. Katy Perry ($83 million)

2. Taylor Swift ($80 million)

3. Beyoncé ($60 million)

4. Pink ($52 million)

5. Lady Gaga ($50 million)

6. Jennifer Lopez ($47 million)

7. Rihanna ($37.5 million)

8. Helene Fischer ($32 million)

9. Celine Dion ($31 million)

10. Britney Spears ($30 million)

"That's the best thing about being a musician," said Halsey. "You get to constantly show the world how you've changed and how you've grown. And you get to say, 'Hey, look at me, look at how much better I am now than I used to be."
