Billboard Boxscore reported that it broke the record for highest-grossing tour coming in at $266.1 million in gross sales, and that's just domestically.

Swift tops the list, with a pretax income of $185 million over the past year from her Reputation world tour, a deal with Netflix to air a Reputation tour special, endorsement deals with Apple, AT&T and Diet Coke and a new deal with Republic Records and Universal Music Group.

Still, Kylie Jenner wasn't far behind the "ME!" star when it came to 2019 earnings. Kim and Kylie are the only KarJenners in the top 100, but both of their partners also made the cut: Kanye West ranked in third place, just one spot below his sister-in-law Jenner with earnings of $150 million, while Kylie's rapper boyfriend Travis Scott was in 39th place with $58 million. She sold an estimated $360 million worth of Kylie Cosmetics, a company she owns 100 percent of, in the previous year, Forbes reported.
