The list of Billboard’s 50 highest earners among musicians was revealed and some of the names may surprise you and some won’t. For example, it’s probably no shock that Beyoncé was the top earner in 2016, making a ridiculous $62.1 million, thanks to Lemonade and her Formation World Tour.

Others on the list include Drake, who came in at No. 4., making a cool $37 million, with $23 million coming from royalties and $14 million from touring with Future last year. After Drizzy came, Adele, who also earned $37 million, while Kanye West, at No. 9, took in a little over $26 million from his Saint Pablo Tour and album streams. Twelfth on the list is Rihanna, who earned $22 million in 2016, followed by Future who made $17 million. Plus, Jennifer Lopez made the top 50, earning a bit over $12 million.
