Taylor Swift's net worth falls just short of the $250 million minimum needed to claim a spot on our list of America's 50 Richest Self-Made Women, which appeared in the June 15th, 2015 issue of FORBES magazine. But at just 25 years of age, she seems likely to join fellow musicians Madonna (No. 28) and Beyoncé (No. 49) on the list in the coming years.

Earlier today, in an airplane hangar-esque building on Manhattan’s far West Side, music streaming service Spotify revealed its next move in a quest for long-term profitability: a plan to move beyond music streaming.

Bryan “Birdman” Williams ranks No. 5 on this year’s Forbes Five–a list of the wealthiest hip-hop acts that appeared in the May 25th, 2015 issue of FORBES magazine. Though they’ve all had successful careers in music, it’s their outside business ventures that were most instrumental in creating their fortunes.

Dr. Dre ranked second on last year’s Forbes Five list of hip-hop’s wealthiest artists last year with a net worth of $550 million. Yet a year later, after selling Beats to Apple for $3 billion, his fortune sits at $700 million in this year’s accounting. Heres why he is not yet a billionaire.

Earlier this week in Bossier City, Louisiana, Taylor Swift played 18 songs to a sold-out crowd at the CenturyLink Center, kicking off the North American leg of her 1989 tour. But her performance at the 14,000-seat arena is just the beginning of what promises to be the best financial year of her career.

“Call Me Maybe” wasn’t Carly Rae Jepsen’s only hit--and, fortunately for one-hit wonders, the paradigm may be in danger.

Over the weekend, Jay Z launched into a rare Twitter rant. His aim was clear: to respond to critics of Tidal, and to position the service as a something of an underdog in the war for streaming supremacy.
