Madonna, one of the top pop divas of all time, was ranked at No. 40. The 62 year-old singer has grossed an estimated $550 million. In 1990, she became the first woman entrepreneur to appear on a Forbes cover.

Swift, 30, is estimated to have a net worth of $365 million last year. The album Lover she released in 2019 helped Swift move more than 4 million units during between June 2019 and June 2020.

Celine Dion ($455 million), Beyoncé ($420 million), Barbra Streisand ($400 million), Lady Gaga ($150 million) and Jennifer Lopez ($150 million) are the other female musicians on the list.
