Beyoncé Named Highest-Paid Black Artist Of All Time


Beyoncé has been named the Highest-Earning Black Artist of All Time — thanks to The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

MTV reports:

According to Billboard magazine, Queen B has overtaken previous earning records held by the likes of Michael Jackson, his sister Janet and Prince to take the title – and it’s all thanks to her Mrs Carter Show world tour.

The publication claims that Bey took home a cool $212million (£126m) from the year-long jaunt, with the tour eventually selling 1.8million tickets across 126 dates.

The most recent European leg of the tour – which saw the star perform 25 dates from February to March – is thought to have earned her $41.1million (£26m) alone.

This means she’s become the highest paid, but that does NOT mean she’s the richest nor has the most money.

However, Bey’s set to make even more money from her newly announced On The Run tour along with her husband Jay Z.

Work, Bey!
