'Forbes' Names Rihanna, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift Most Powerful Female Musicians of 2019

Check out the publication’s list of 100 Most Powerful Women here.

Forbes has released its list of 100 Most Powerful Women of 2019, naming Rihanna, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift the top three most powerful musicians of the year. Though the list is dominated by politicians and businesspeople such as Angela Merkel — who tops the list as number one for the ninth year in a row — Nancy Pelosi (#3) and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg (#18), entertainers including Oprah Winfrey (#20) and Reese Witherspoon (#90) also made the cut. Notably, climate activist Greta Thunberg is the youngest person ranked, coming in at #100 — the 16-year-old was also named TIME‘s Person Of The Year.
