OK, now let’s get in formation and pay homage to the women who run the world. The music world, that is. Forbes released their list of Highest Paid Women in Music for 2017 and it shouldn’t be shocking that Beyoncé took the No. 1 spot, dethroning last year’s top-earning female musician, Taylor Swift. That’s right, in case you didn’t know, Bey is the queen and is capable of doing anything.

Forbes reports that Bey earned a cool $105 million pre-tax this year, mostly due to her visual album Lemonade and its ensuing Formation World Tour, the latter of which grossed a whopping quarter of a billion dollars. She also has her fingers in all kinds of pies, from her Ivy Park fashion line, all her fragrances, as well as endorsements with the likes of Pepsi and H&M. And she’s a supermom (and superwife) too. Swoon.

The business mag compiled the list by estimating their pre-tax income for the 12-month period from June, 1 2016, to June 1, 2017.

The other ladies on the list? Some might just surprise you. Check out the full ranking below.
