BBC reports that Adele is now officially the richest ever female musician from the UK, coming in at number 30 on Sunday Times Rich List, which lists the biggest-earners of music in the UK and Ireland.

Adele’s net worth sits at £85 million, or $121 million, while the richest artist on the list, Sir Paul McCartney, has a net worth of £760 million/over $1 billion. Editor of the Sunday Times Rich List, Ian Coxon, says, “Adele is only 27 so I would see her getting in the main list of the richest 1,000 in a couple of years, she is only £15 to £20m away now.”

The list, which is dominated by male musicians, only features one other female musician and that’s Irish singer Enya at No. 28 with a net worth of £91 million (which is roughly around $130 million).
