The queen doesn't quit.

Since Forbes has already officially given Beyoncé the titles of world's second-highest paid celebrity and one-half of a billion dollar couple, this next piece of news should come as no surprise.

The publication announced yesterday (November 20) that Bey is 2017's highest-paid woman in music upon earning $105 million, pre-taxes. Forbes notes that her Lemonade LP, last year's highest-selling album worldwide, was a "hit with both critics and fans," and that her subsequent Formation World Tour "grossed a quarter of a billion dollars."

Trailing closely behind are Adele (#2), Taylor Swift (#3), Celine Dion (#4), and Jennifer Lopez (#5).

Congrats to the Queen!
