BEYONCE

BOW DOWN, B*TCHES!!  Beyoncé has been named the highest-paid black artist of all time, according to reports.

The singer has overtaken previous earning records held by Michael Jackson, Prince and Janet Jackson, following the success of her ‘Mrs Carter Show’ world tour.

Beyoncé pocketed $212 million for the year-long tour, which sold over 1.8 million tickets across 126 dates, according to Billboard magazine.

The star’s most recent dates in Europe – which spanned across 25 dates from February to March – earned her $41.1 million alone.

The tour largely traveled before the release of Beyoncé’s self-titled fifth studio album, which came in December 2013.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé recently announced plans for a new co-headline tour with her husband Jay Z, which will travel across the US this summer.
