July 21, 2010 2:40 PM | Beyonce | Jay Z | Comments (0)

The new Forbes List of top earning musicians is out. It reveals that Beyonce, her husband Jay-Z and the Black Eyed Peas are part of the top 10.  Beyonce was the list’s highest-earning female at No. 3. Her endorsement deals with Nintendo and L’Oreal, as well as her House of Dereon fashion line brought her $87 million, including her concerts and world tour.

Jay-Z takes the No. 6 spot, with earnings of $63 million. His stake in NBA team the New Jersey Nets, his 40/40 nightclub chain, “The Blueprint 3" album sales, and his investment in the Broadway musical, “Fela!” was the source of his earnings.

Britney Spears at No. 5 can also attribute much of her $64 million earned to endorsements, particularly her Elizabeth Arden fragrance and spokesperson deal with Candies.

Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, and Toby Keith are in a three way tie, taking the 10th spot. Each earned an estimated $48 million thanks to various tours, endorsement deals, merchandise sales, and publishing royalties.
