In fifth place on the list of the highest paid performers was the rapper Post Malone. Over the past year, the American musician managed to earn $ 29.7 million. Live performances, which he traded before the start of the pandemic, brought him much popularity.

The fourth place in the top was taken by the most popular K-pop artists among young people – the BTS group. The South Korean team has firmly won the hearts of millions of fans around the world, which helped the energetic guys earn $ 31.5 million in 2024.

Billboard Bronze went to 19-year-old American singer Billy Eilish. Her unusual way of writing and performing songs has helped her build not only a solid fan base in different countries, but also a significant income over the past year. She alone managed to “surpass” cute Korean guys by 1.3 million, earning $ 32.8 million.

In second place is absolutely deservedly located singer Taylor Swift. That’s who didn’t get bored during the pandemic: in 2024, she managed to release two whole albums under the names Evermore and Folklore, and also earn a mind-boggling amount. According to a foreign magazine, Swift received $41.4 million for her music in 2024.

The first place in the list went to one of the most famous rock bands of the last 50 years – Queen. Despite the frequent changes of members of the team, the group has its own charm and a special style of performance. The famous hits of Queen brought up more than one generation of music lovers. Before the pandemic, the musicians, along with performer Adam Lambert, went on a big overseas tour. In 2024, they managed to earn more than $48.7 million.
