Taylor Swift, Adele and Madonna take the top spots on the famed Forbes list.

It comes as no surprise that Taylor Swift is the highest-paid female artist in music today and sits at the top spot on Forbes’ World’s Hight-Paid Women in Music list, as the youngest female of the wealthy bunch.

Taylor Swift celebrated her debut self-titled album’s 10th anniversary on Oct. 24, and in her decade since crashing onto the music scene, the singer has ferociously built her empire, with Billboard 200 top-charting albums, a plethora of endorsements and business partnerships, and top-grossing tours, like her most recent 1989 tour, which drew in over $200 million. Swift flies to the top spot of Forbes’ list with $170 million made in the past year, replacing Katy Perry in pole position on the ranking.

Album Anniversary: Fall Out Boy - Infinity On High

Released: February 6, 2007

In 2007, Fall Out Boy were riding the wave of success created by their previous release, 2005’s From Under The Cork Tree. Their subsequent release became a huge hit, selling 260,000 copies in its first week and receiving platinum status from the RIAA only a month after its release. Featuring popular singles like “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs” and “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race”, the album continues to shine in fan favorites like “Thriller” and “Hum Hallelujah”. It illustrates a departure from the bands previous pop-punk sound in favor of a mixing of soul, R&B, classic rock, and 90’s punk reminiscent of Take This to Your Grave. Over the years since its release, it has become a pillar of 2000’s pop-punk, for obvious reasons. By combining musical complexity and lyrical merit, Fall Out Boy managed to create a pop-punk album that is enjoyable by all.
