With 2019 coming to a close in just a matter of days, Forbes is giving us a glimpse into this decade's biggest winners. The publication just unveiled its decenary list of top-earning musicians of the decade. Topping the list is hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre, with an incredible $950 million.

As Forbes notes, Dr. Dre hasn’t released an album since 2015 and hasn’t gone on tour since the turn of the millennium, his last No. 1 song was in 2009, when he worked on Eminem's "Crack a Bottle." Yet, the hip-hop superproducer still topped all other music stars this decade, with his business ventures. Notably, Dre's 20 percent stake in Beats was acquired by Apple in 2014 for $3 billion.

Other notable names on the list include Taylor Swift, who was the decade’s second-biggest earner with $825 million, followed by Beyoncé with $685 million. Both artists profited from several centimillion-dollar tours, multiple albums and a slew of multimillion-dollar sponsor partnerships with brands from adidas to Coca-Cola.

Find the complete list below and head over to Forbes for the complete breakdown.
