Taylor Swift is monstrously huge. She managed to pull in US$65.5 million in 2022 without ever having to play a show, pulling on US$65.5 million from sales and streaming alone. That’s a full US$10 million more than The Rolling Stones. Drake never toured, either, but even with his huge success with streaming, he made half as much as Tay-Tay.
Here’s how Billboard calculated things.
