Holding down the No. 1 and No. 2 spots for rappers on Billboard’s list are Post Malone and Drake. Posty earned $23.2 million, $12.4 million of which came from the 20 dates he was able to perform for his “Runaway Tour” before the pandemic shut the world down.
Posty landed at No. 2 on the list overall, grabbing a spot just behind Taylor Swift.
Other artists included on Billboard’s Money Makers list include Lil Baby, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Roddy Ricch, Kanye West and more.
