The A-list musicians banked $78 million between May 2011 and May 2012 from record sales, touring, endorsement deals and other non-musical ventures.
Blue Ivy‘s parents bumped last year’s list toppers, NFL quarterback Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bunchen, to the No. 2 spot ($72 million). David and Victoria Beckham earned a place at the podium, coming in third with $54 million.
