Forbes Reveals the World’s Richest People

Forbes announced the richest names of this year as it does every year. This year, there was another name on the list that will surprise everyone. Here are the details!

Forbes announced this year’s list of billionaires as it does every year. While there are names that do not surprise in the list, new names that have achieved a first are also noteworthy.

Taylor Swift, who was selected as TIME Magazine’s “Person of the Year” in 2023 and Euronews Culture’s “2023 Music Personality of the Year”, had earned the right to enter these lists with her songs and stage performances.

However, the singer, who entered the billionaire list announced by Forbes with a fortune of 1.1 billion dollars, has also managed to become the first musician to make the Forbes list with only her songs and performances.

Who are the World’s Richest People and Rich Candidates?

Forbes claimed that 34-year-old singer Taylor Swift earned $500 million from royalties and tours, $500 million from her albums and $125 million from real estate. In addition to all these, she is said to have earned close to 100 million dollars from Spotify streaming royalties.

Forbes also included the following words for Swift:

“By becoming a billionaire in October, Miss Americana capped one of the most culturally influential years a musician has ever experienced. Her estimated $190 million in after-tax earnings from her historic Eras Tour helped the country and pop musician become a three-comma club. He is the first to do so based solely on songwriting and performance.”
