    Billboard's 2020 Global Money Makers: The 5 Top Highest Paid Musicians

    Queen are the champions of the world when it comes to 2020 earnings, according to Billboard’s first ranking of the top five acts’ international income. It is joined by three U.S. artists and -- surprise -- K-pop phenomenon BTS.


    Although the music business is an increasingly global enterprise, reliably measuring the income of artists who are popular on an international scale remains an inexact science. The September 2020 launch of Billboard’s global charts, which are based on digital track sales and streaming reports from over 200 territories, has made the process more accurate, but many key metrics, such as authoritative physical and digital album sales, are currently not obtainable.

    In order to determine sound estimates of music’s top global artists for 2020, Billboard employed a multistep calculation process. To estimate global sales, we compared the RIAA’s physical and digital revenue report for last year with IFPI’s global revenue statistics and found that domestic physical sales made up 30.6% of total global sales (physical music video sales were not counted), while domestic digital sales accounted for 56% of global digital sales.

    Using these percentages, we extrapolated global sales for 22 artists, based on their high rankings in the top sales and international touring categories used to determine the 2020 U.S. Money Makers list (which Billboard Pro will publish July 19). Likewise, without hard sales numbers, we used U.S. formulas to estimate publishing revenue. Industry sources say international publishing payouts are slightly higher, but they differ among territories. Calculating royalties from master-recording performance rights was also not possible because those rights do not exist for most uses in the United States.

    ARTISTS MENTIONED


    Billie Eilish


    BTS


    Post Malone


    Queen


    Taylor Swift
    Kid Cudi Responds to Critics of His Painted Nails: 'F--- Way Off'


    To accommodate label holdbacks for international sales, Billboard deducted 30% of royalties from all non-U.S. sales and streaming revenue. All estimates are before contractual recoupments, such as recording costs, which vary by artist and would be impossible to calculate. Livestreams, such as BTS’ June 2020 Bang Bang Con, were also not included in our calculations because of reporting issues.

    Given this methodology, the results for the following five acts are most likely conservative.Except for 2020’s No. 1 Global Money Maker, Queen, the remaining four are contemporary pop acts, three of which are American: Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and Post Malone. Although K-pop group BTS ranks No. 4 on this list, its massive global popularity had the most impact on its standing when compared with the U.S. Money Makers ranking: The other four acts landed in the top 10 of that list, while BTS ranked at No. 19.
    1. Queen


    Total income: $48.7 million
    Box-office take home: $15.1 million
    Streaming royalty estimate: $15.2 million
    Global stream count: 7 billion

    The British rock superstars — once led by the late Freddie Mercury and now touring with Adam Lambert — top this ranking for two reasons: $44.1 million in pre-pandemic 2020 touring revenue, which was distilled down to a $15.1 million payday, and its original members own their master recordings, which enables them to keep most of their royalties after distribution and marketing fees are deducted. Queen is also one of the few heritage rock bands with strong streaming numbers — 7 billion globally in 2020, which translated to $15.2 million. With no new studio album to promote (since 1995), no 2020 U.S. concert dates and (a still-strong) $5.5 million in domestic streaming earnings, the act is No. 7 on the 2020 U.S. Money Makers list with earnings of $13.2 million.
    2. Taylor Swift


    Total income: $41.4 million
    Box-office take home: $0
    Streaming royalty estimate: $19.8 million
    Global stream count: 11.6 billion

    Swift ranks No. 2 globally for the same reason that she’s No. 1 on the 2020 U.S. Money Makers list: She owns the masters to the two post-Big Machine albums she released last year, folklore and evermore, which helped give her one of the year’s strongest performances. Billboard estimates that, in the United States at least, she takes home 46% of her sales and streaming revenue. The $19.8 million she earned from 11.6 billion global streams played the largest role in boosting her income to $41.4 million — 75% more than her domestic take of $23.8 million.

    3. Billie Eilish


    Total income: $32.8 million
    Box-office take home: $1 million
    Streaming royalty estimate: $13.6 million
    Global stream count: 13.7 billion

    Eilish is the sole American artist who ranks higher on this list than she does on U.S. Money Makers, where she is No. 5. That has much to do with her streaming strength. She has the second-highest global numbers in the category: 13.7 billion, which translates to a $13.6 million payday — $6 million more than her domestic take alone. Her extrapolated global sales and publishing are also strong and were a significant factor in boosting her $14.7 million in U.S. earnings by $18.1 million internationally.
    4. BTS


    Total income: $31.5 million
    Box-office take home: $0
    Streaming royalty estimate: $14.6 million
    Global stream count: 17.3 billion

    BTS is the only act on this list that doesn’t also appear in the top 10 of U.S. Money Makers. The K-pop group ranks No. 19 on the latter list, and its No. 4 finish here indicates the group’s tremendous global impact. Its $8.9 million in U.S. earnings was slightly more than 25% of its global take. That total was fueled by 17.3 billion global streams (9.8 billion in video, 7.4 billion in audio), which made BTS the world’s top streaming act in 2020. The “Butter” boys’ extrapolated global digital track and physical album sales were big, too, based on their U.S. totals, which were the highest in those revenue categories.

    5. Post Malone


    Total income: $29.7 million
    Box-office take home: $13.2 million
    Streaming royalty estimate: $12 million
    Global stream count: 10 billion

    Post Malone managed to have a “Wow.” year despite the pandemic. He was one of the few artists able to make substantial touring money — finishing 2020 with the fourth-highest global Billboard Boxscore, the equivalent of a $13.2 million paycheck — and ranks at No. 2 on the U.S. Money Makers list. His fifth-place showing here is partially the result of a sales volume that did not approach the levels of the other four acts. And though he racked up 5.6 billion in ov

    MBW’s Stat Of The Week is a series in which we show why a single data point deserves the attention of the global music industry. Stat Of the Week is supported by Cinq Music Group, a technology-driven record label, distribution, and rights management company.

    Legendary British band Queen are an astonishing streaming success story – and one of the few ‘deep catalog’ artists to have truly conquered the format.

    Queen remain the 38th biggest artist on Spotifytoday, with over 37.6 million monthly listeners. That’s more than Kanye West (35.8m), Beyoncé (32.6m), The Beatles (24.3m), and Jay-Z (21.6m).

    Indeed, according to the IFPI, Queen were the world’s fifth biggest revenue-generating recording artist of 2019, and the sixth biggest in 2018.

    All this from a band who last released a new studio album 26 years ago (Made In Heaven, 1995).

    Now we can reveal the stunning amount of money Queen’s classic music continues to generate in royalties each year.

    MBW has trawled back through the annual accounts of Queen Productions Ltd, the UK-based group into which Queen’s turnover is paid each year.

    Queen Productions Ltd is jointly and equally owned by the three living Queen founder members – Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon – plus the estate of Freddie Mercury.

    The most recent of the firm’s annual accounts, for the 12 months to end of September 2020, was filed late last month.

    It reveals that Queen generated £41.95 million ($58.1 million at current exchange rates) in the annual period. The vast majority of this money came from royalties, which amounted to £41.67 million ($57.7 million) in the year.

    These royalties will have been derived from a variety of sources, but to put things into context: $57.7 million is the equivalent of the payout an artist might expect to receive if their music was played around 14.4 billion times on Spotify.


    An important reminder: what we’re talking about here is the net revenues being pulled in by Queen Productions Ltd – not money that’s yet to wash through a record company or music publisher. (That said, Queen could feasibly be paying its label/publisher partners on a fee basis for their services.)

    Streaming services show that, today, Queen’s master recordings are owned by Queen Productions Ltd, and licensed worldwide (ex-US/Canada) to Universal Music. (Queen’s US/Canada recording rights are owned by Disney.) The band’s publishing rights, meanwhile, are a little more complex. They are owned by a separate UK company, Queen Music Ltd, and administered by Sony Music Publishing.

    That said, filings for Queen Music Ltd show that it paid out £26.8 million to “entities under the control of [Queen’s members]” during FY2020 – suggesting this music publishing income is likely being paid through to Queen Productions Ltd.


    Queen’s mammoth royalties in FY2020 were actually significantly down on what the band pulled in a year earlier.

    In FY2019 (the 12 months to end of September 2019), Queen Productions Ltd generated £72.77 million ($100.8m), of which £71.53 million ($99.0m) was from royalties.

    Queen’s astronomical success in FY2019 was largely down to one particular reason: the super-successful, Oscar-winning biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, which was released in October 2018 (within Queen’s FY2019), and was stuffed with the classic recordings of the band.
    STAT OF THE WEEK: QUEEN’S UK COMPANY HAS BANKED OVER USD $180 MILLION FOR THE BAND (AND FREDDIE MERCURY’S ESTATE) IN PURE ROYALTIES OVER THE PAST THREE YEARS.


    In its latest filing, Queen Productions Ltd notes that the company’s decline in revenues in FY2020 vs. FY2019 was “expected and can be attributed in part to the success of the film Bohemian Rhapsody“.

    However, the filing adds: “Given the success of Bohemian Rhapsody it is anticipated there will be further income from the film in the year ended 30 September 2021 and in the years thereafter, although that is expected to decrease year-on-year.”

    In other words, Bohemian Rhapsody’s cinema release provided a one-off spike in revenues for Queen in FY2019, but should now continue to boost revenues to a smaller extent as the years tick by.

    (Disclaimer for what you’re about to read: We can’t be 100% sure from the filings if Queen counts any non-music residuals from Bohemian Rhapsody as “royalties” within Queen Music Production Ltd.)


    One particularly interesting thing about Queen’s recent revenue history is that even before the Bohemian Rhapsody movie arrived, the band’s income was already jumping up significantly.

    So much so that in FY2018, Queen Productions Ltd turned over nearly double what it had just two years prior (£21.94 million in FY2018 vs. £12.34 million in FY2016).

    Amid the current fierce music industry acquisitions market, this all begs a vital question: If Queen were to sell their music rights today, what kind of price might it fetch?

    A couple of data points to help us: In its latest annual report, Hipgnosis Songs Fund says that its catalog was recently independently valued at $2.2 billion, based on a “multiple of 17.96x historical annual net publisher share income”. The suggestion there, obviously, is that a 17.96 multiple is a reasonable reflection of the market value of gold-standard music publishing rights today.

    In the past three years, according to Queen Productions Ltd, the band’s rights have generated some £134.5 million ($186 million) in royalties. That’s an average across these three years of $62 million per annum.

    This figure obviously represents income from Queen’s recorded music as well as music publishing.

    It’s also been boosted by that Bohemian Rhapsody release in FY2019. At the same time, Queen’s music continues to command an enviable market share on streaming services, whose contribution to the music industry keeps on growing each year – driving up Queen’s own income.

    So, just for fun: A 17.96 multiple on $62 million? That would make Queen’s royalty-bearing rights worth $1.11 billion today.

    Bear in mind that it’s not uncommon for a prestige ‘deep catalog’ of music to attract acquisition multiples in excess of 20-times: senior industry sources suggest that Universal Music Group paid a multiple of between 25 and 30 times for the Bob Dylan song catalog last year (for which UMG shelled out over $300 million).

    Again, for fun: What if a buyer was willing to pay a 25-times multiple for Queen’s royalty-bearing rights – again, including recorded and publishing rights – based on that $62 million per-year average royalty turnover in the past three years?

    You’d be looking at a sale price of just over $1.5 billion.

    Regardless, Queen’s members aren’t likely to have any burning financial imperative to sell.

    According to their fiscal filings, the owners of Queen Productions Ltd have shared dividends of £47.38 million in just the past three years – including a £20.17 million annual dividend payout in FY2020.

    Guaranteed to blow your mind.

    Sour - the UK’s biggest album of 2021 so far - finishes the week just 270 chart sales ahead of Queen’s Greatest Hits, extending Olivia’s reign as the only artist to spend more than a week at Number 1 this year on the Official Albums Chart.
    I think their record company totally messed up things and failed again. They released limited version 1k, personally signed by band members Brian May and Roger Taylor, which gone in a seconds after it was announced. So why they couldn't release another 1k or 2k??? Did they monitor the situation??? Absolutely losers.
    After midweeks result, there were so many news, headlines, interviews with band members, that Queen are heading to No 1 again, and what now??? They got these 270 copies in their faces, I can tell you.
