Bad Bunny cracking the top 10 of Forbes' highest paid artists in the world is largely due to the success of his last two tours — El Último Tour del Mundo and The World's Hottest Tour — both happening over the Spring and Fall of 2022.
"The Puerto Rican rapper dazzled millions around the world as he flew over a palm tree during a tour, appeared alongside Brad Pitt in Bullet Train and challenged machismo with a genderfluid style," Forbes wrote.
The magazine also highlighted how sponsorship played a role in Bad Bunny's income rise, as major brands such like Corona, Cheetos and Adidas partnered with Benito to be the "the icing on the cake."
Other major artists featured on Forbes annual list were actor, director and screenwriter Tyler Perry; rock band Genesis; The Simpsons creators James L. Brooks and Matt Groening, and director James Cameron, among others.
Country artist Taylor Swift was also included on Forbes list as the only woman, with a total income of $92 million, thanks to the ongoing success of the songs off her latest album Midnights, and her Eras Tour.
The figures presented for all of the artists on the list are given before their tax return in 2022 and minus representation fees (managers, lawyers, agents) and/or business operating costs.
