(Hypebot) — Taylor Swift topped this year’s Billboard Music Money Makers list with global earnings. Her $65.8 million estimated top total was particularly impressive since it came entirely from music sales and streaming income since she did not tour at all last year.

#2 and #3, The Rolling Stones and Harry Styles, respectively, earned the majority of their global income from touring, according to Billboard and data provider Luminate.
