Beyoncé has been named the highest-paid black artist of all time.
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.
Bey is set to make even more cash this year after announcing a joint US tour with hubby Jay Z, titled On The Run, which starts this summer.
It is currently unknown whether the power couple will bring their shows to the UK.
