Beyonce is not only having the greatest year of her career; she’s also the “Highest Paid Black Musician of All Time.”
According to MTV, “Beyonce is expected to make well over 200 million dollars by the time the Mrs Carter Show World Tour wraps up this year (2014). The tour, which was already the highest grossing concert by a female artist in 2013, is set to become the most successful of her entire career and make her the highest paid black musician of all time!”
That means the seat-filling performer will outdo Mariah Carey, Diana Ross and Janet Jackson’s previous concert records. Outside of those accolades, she not only brings in the fans on stage, but maintains creative control over everything she does as director and executive producer of her production company, Parkwood Entertainment.
