Bruce Springsteen tops list of ten highest-paid musicians of 2021

Bruce Springsteen has topped the list of the ten highest-paid musicians of 2021, with an eye-watering $590million after he sold his publishing copyrights and master recordings to Sony. 

The list, collated by Rolling Stone, unveils which musical acts have raked in the most revenue in a pandemic year that saw little touring and physical album sales increasingly trounced by streaming platforms. 

However, the musicians featured in the list netted a combined $2.3 billion, more than double what they were making on an annual basis in the years before COVID-19.

This has been put down to their massive catalog sales, aside from Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Taylor Swift.

The rest of the acts made the most of their fortunes by selling copyrights.

Springsteen, 72, made history last December with his massive $550 million paycheck from selling his masters, and added a few more millions with his return to Broadway last summer. 

He also raked in millions more thanks to his Spotify podcast with Barack Obama Renegades: Born in the USA and an accompanying book of the same name.

The report notes that Fleetwood Mac star Stevie Nicks, who sold her catalog for $100 million in December 2020, missed out on entering the list due to the cut off date.
