Swift's new album Lover - her first release with her new record label Republic Records - comes out in August. In 2016, she nabbed the top spot with earnings of $170 million.

Find the complete list below and head over to Forbes for the complete breakdown. In 2018, she was in the No. 3 spot, with earnings of $166.5 million.

Forbes noted that Swift's 2018 "Reputation" stadium trek was the highest grossing tour in USA history at $266.1 million, and also that the artist benefitted from a new deal with Universal's Republic label and the sharing of proceeds from Universal's sale of its Spotify stake. Coming in between these two musicians at No. 2 is Kylie Jenner, who hauled an estimated $170 million; Jenner topped the list previous year.

Social media and reality TV star Kylie Jenner is ranked second on the list with an estimated pre-tax pay packet of $170m (£136m). She owns 100% of her company, which sold $360 million worth of her signature lip kits in 2018.

Jenner isn't the only member of her family to make the list of Forbes's highest-earning celebrities. The 21-year-old is No. 2,057 on the magazine's billionaires list, a ranking that does not include Swift. The rest of the top 10 in this order: Kylie Jenner, Kanye West, Lionel Messi, Ed Sheeran, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, The Eagles, Dr Phil McGraw and Canelo Alvarez.

Swift earned much of that money from touring.

The Forbes list, released Wednesday, ranks 100 celebrities, including musicians, film stars, athletes and comedians. Interestingly the difference between Khiladi and Robert Downey Jr was barely a million dollar where the latter earned $66 million and Aki managed $65 million.
