We're always a bit suspicious of Forbes highest-paid musician lists, as there seem to be some shenanigans involved with their accounting.

Billboard, on the other hand, is all about the statistics.

Here's their take on the top 20 biggest money makers of 2020, with a YoungBoy surprise at number 9.  All the numbers are down this year because COVID limited touring.

1. Taylor Swift $23.8 million
2. Post Malone $23.2 million
3. Celine Dion $17.5 million
4. Eagles $16.3 million
5. Billie Eilish $14.7 million
6. Drake $14.2 million
7. Queen $13.2 million
8. The Beatles $12.9 million
