Forbes has released its official list of the top 10 musicians who made huge sums of money in 2017.

American rapper and singer Sean “Diddy” Combs‘ has been announced by Forbes as the highest earning artiste of 2017 after income from Ciroc vodka, DeLeon tequila and Aquahydrate water, alongside proceeds from his Bad Boy Reunion Tour, and an estimated $70 million sale of his Sean John clothing line put him above his peers.

Forbes revealed that Diddy made an estimated pre-tax earnings of a whopping $130 million in 2017.

Next on the list is the most streamed artist of the past 2 years Drake, whose Boy Meets World tour and deals with Apple, Sprite and Nike earned him an estimated $94 million.
