Guns N' Roses and Bruce Springsteen were among the musicians who raked in the most dough past year, according to Billboard's newly released list of the Top 50 Money Makers of 2016.

According to Billboard, Queen B has topped their list of top earning performers in the music industry from 2016, bringing in a whopping $62.1 million.

The highest artists of 2016 have been revealed - and Beyonce is leading the charge after grossing $61.2 million (£47.2m) in just one year. Just Bey-low on the list are Guns "N" Roses and Bruce Springsteen respectively, who both notched just north of $42 million, nearly entirely through touring. The list includes appearances by Beyonce, Drake, Kanye West, Rihanna, The Weeknd and so many more. She brought in over $54 million from touring revenue alone.

When asked if he thought Akhmetshin was connected to the Russian security services, Rohrabacher said: "I would certainly not rule that out".

No shame in Drake's touring haul - $13.6 million in road receipts is pretty considerable.

Kanye West finds himself rounding out the Top 10 of the Money Makers list at the No. 9 seed. He ranked at the No. 4 seed, with his streaming sales for his 20-track playlist, VIEWS, earning him $18.1 million. The duo almost match that total with both their streaming ($6.1 million) and publishing ($5.7 million) grosses, though - topping the latter rankings, in large part due to lead Pilot Tyler Joseph being the sole songwriter credited on the group's multi-platinum-selling Blurryface album.

Though Adele's critically adored album 25 was released in 2015, her tour in support of the hit record, as well as 2.2 million overall album sales for 2016, landed her at number five on the list with an even $37 million in earnings. Check out Billboard's full list here.
