Beyonce beats Michael Jackson’s record; named the highest-paid black artist in history

 

RnB diva, Beyoncé has been named the highest-paid black artist of all time – beating the likes of Michael Jackson and Prince.

The 32-year-old singer has managed to improve on previous earning records held by Michael Jackson, Prince and Janet Jackson – and it follows the overwhelming success of her Mrs Carter Show world tour.

According to Billboard magazine, Beyoncé grossed $212 million (€153m) for the year-long tour, which sold over 1.8 million tickets for its 126 dates.

The star’s most recent dates in Europe – which saw her play 25 concerts across the months of February and March – earned her $41.1 million (€30m).

Meanwhile, Beyoncé recently announced plans for a new co-headline tour ‘On The Run’ with her husband, rapper Jay Z, which heads across the USA this summer.
