The Love on Top singer topped a poll by social media website saucytime.com by earning £1.25 million for a five-song performance at a private New Year's Eve 2010 party, equating to £71,040 for each minute she was on the stage, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
In second place was Mariah Carey, who earned £630,000 - or £44,400 per minute - for a four-song set at a similar party held the previous year on the same Caribbean island.
Third highest earner per minute was Kylie Minogue, who commanded £33,000 every sixty seconds or two million for her whole hour set. She had sung at the launch party of the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai, November 2008.
