Taylor Swift is on pace to make $365 million this year — more than Jay Z, Diddy, and Drake combined
Taylor Swift makes A LOT of money.
According to MSN, Swift has raked in $1 million every day so far in 2015.
Her “1989” album crossed the 5 million mark in sales earlier this year, and she’s played over
85 shows in 2015 – most of which have been sold out. Swift, 25, also has massive endorsement deals with brands like Diet Coke.
All this adds up to her being the highest-earning musician in the world — pulling in an astounding $317.8 million since January.
Financial analysts believe Swift will stay on pace, finishing the year with $365 million.
Just to put that in perspective, the three highest-earning hip-hop artists — Diddy, Jay Z, Drake — made almost half of that ($155.5 million) combined last year.
In June, Forbes named Swift and her boyfriend, Calvin Harris, the world’s highest-earning couple over the last year, edging out Jay Z and Beyoncé by about $30 million.
However, those numbers didn’t take into account Swift’s massive 2015 — stats that would undoubtedly put Swift and Harris leaps and bounds out of reach.
