I take it the list is only for British/Irish acts, otherwise both would probably be here.

It annoys me how groups like U2 for example are here as a collective yet Coldplay are all split up. I know it's because some have solo careers whilst others don't, but it still feels strange tongue.gif

How old is Calvin Harris he joint with Adele in original list but not a young musician is that because he is over 30

If so how does Adele qualify she is 30

Never mind she counts because it's 30 or under so ed will top it next year

Plus it was her birthday just the other day, the list could have been compiled before that.

How would Enya have made 5 million last year?

No album, no tour, no special appearances, she isnt a merchandise seller either.

Her back catalogue wouldnt be selling that strongly to net that income.

It doesn't say it's from music or media related - she could have just made some money on property or similar?

About royalties, the artists don't always get them straight away. They can sometimes have to wait up to 12 months to get royalties apparently. For example, some of the money Enya got during 2017 could have been from something that happened in 2016.

Also, I don't think the royalties from streaming are very much. Enya might make more money from royalties via her songs being used in movies, TV shows, adverts, radio airplay, plays in restaurants and shops, etc. I'm not sure exactly, but I think that makes the artists more money from those kinds of things than from streaming. Except a special few cases like 6ix9ine for example.

For example, Zedd - The Middle might be making a lot more money than some bigger hits right now, because it's being used in an advert (and does better than average on radio as well).

I'm surprised Zayn is the poorest out of the One Direction members. What is he doing with his money? He should probably be the richest. We will probably be reading newspaper articles in 30 years time about how he's broke and living on the streets lol.

And why wouldn't Jessie J have 18 million? I would have expected slightly higher, if anything.

(Also, a bit of a tangent, but I like Enya. Why does she have this reputation for being boring? People like Sinead O'Connor and Annie Lennox are what I would consider boring).

Great to see Mick Jagger has made so much money off the back of T.H.E! smile.gif
