Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao topped the list in first and second place respectively. Mayweather, who also happened to beat Pacquiao in a highly anticipated boxing match earlier this year, earned $300 million while his competitor took home $160 million.

Third place belongs to Katy Perry, whose Prismatic World Tour has launched her to huge monetary success. Earning $135 million, Perry rose in the rankings from No. 9 in 2014 to third place in 2015. One Direction still managed to land in fourth place, despite losing Zayn Malik. The group’s massive tour schedule and international travels have earned them $130 million.

The real surprise, however, falls on Beyoncé. The “Single Ladies” singer dropped to 29th place after earning only $54.5 million this year while taking home about $115 million.

Queen Bey has been dethroned! Shortly behind Beyoncé is Kim Kardashian, who has climbed her way up the ladder from No. 80 last year to No. 33 this year after earning $52.5 million.
