Dr Dre Beats Beyoncé And One Direction As Highest-Paid Musician
The annual list is based on box office sales, royalties for recorded and published music, merchandise, endorsement deals and other business interests...
The hip-hop mogul has racked up £395 million ($620m) this year before tax, which gives him the widest margin in history between the first and second spots on the list, according to Forbes.
The $3 billion sale of his co-founded business to Apple no doubt helped him beat the likes of Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber.
In the runner's up spot is Beyoncé who took home £73 million ($115m), after dropping her 'surprise' album, performing the Mrs Carter Show tour and securing deals with H&M and Pepsi.
The Eagles are third with £64 million ($100m), Bon Jovi fourth after earning £52 million ($82m) and Bruce Springsteen completes the top five with £51 million ($81m).
