Madonna tops list of America's wealthiest female musicians in 2017, followed by Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand then Beyonce

American singer, Madonna tops the list of America's richest female musicians in 2017 that's just been released by Forbes.

Madonna reigns with a whooping $580 million. Forbes reports that her Rebel Heart tour, which ended in March 2016, grossed $170million.
 
She's closely followed by Celine Dion who comes in second position with $400 million while Barbra Streisand clinches the third position with $390 million.

Beyonce comes in 4th position with $350 million as her last year’s Lemonade album and the Formation World Tour reportedly grossed a quarter of a billion dollars. 

Taylor Swift completes the list of the top 5 with $280 million largely due to the success of her 1989 tour, which smashed North American touring records.

Based on logistics, while our parents and teachers still preach education (i.e academic excellence) as the vanguard of success in life, singers (whom in most cases were the least in their class) are winning and dinning on fortune.

The list says richest not recent album. Nigerians, you people are amazing. Must they release album? Don't they do shows and have other structures that brings in money for them. Na was oo !

Mr Hudson go bk n read that article,no body said they released an album but that money is from touring.weda u release album or not u can always do a tour when ever u like.Go to different countries where u are loved set different days for shows,sell ticket and u shall make good cash.simple as that.and that's what Madonnas songs are still selling just like Micheal Jacksons songs are still selling up till his death.that's what u get when u do good music.but our nija musicians only want to eat today n forget tomorrow.good Music is a commodity that never dies only if u do good music doh,u will eat forever.I wish nija artist can see more than today n see into d future.most nija artist in d next 10yrs we won't hear of them agn.

But Taylor swift was born in 1989. How come she did a tour in the same year?

Who ever made this list is tripping . Mariah Carey has always been number two . How come she wasn't mentioned when she is worth 520 million?
