Taylor Swift, the highest paid artist of 2022.


Taylor Swift was recently listed on Forbes’ annual list of highest-earning artists. Due to her continued popularity, streaming royalties, licensing fees and other revenue streams, the “Anti-Hero” singer earned an estimated $92 million in 2022.

According to Forbes, Swift could end up with even more this year. List explained, “Crashing Ticketmaster with insane demand for her Midnights tour in November suggests an even bigger 2023 for her. She will be on the road for 52 nights across the US with a potential 9-figure payout as a result.”

Topping Forbes’ annual list is progressive rock band Genesis, largely due to Concord Music Group buying their catalog in September for $300 million. Sting came in second for 2022. He sold his music last February to Universal Music Group for $300 million as well. Genesis got the upper hand with tour and royalty income.

In third place is Tyler Perry with $175 million earned last year. South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone earned the No. 4 spot with $160 million, which is due to their monumental 2021 deal with Paramount.

Fellow television creators James L. Brooks and Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, earned $105 million, overtaking Brad Pitt, who earned $100 million, in fifth place. The Rolling Stones ($98 million), James Cameron ($95 million), Swift and Bad Bunny ($88) round out the list.
