Beyonce Named Highest Earning Black Artist In History

Beyonce has been named the highest-earning black artist in history. 

Thanks to her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, the R&B diva has surpassed records held by musical legends such as Michael Jackson, his sister Janet, and even PrinceMTV News reports that the Bey took home a whopping $212 million from the year long tour, selling 1.8 million tickets for 126 dates. 

And from the looks of it, Beyonce plans to bring home even more millions this year as she just announced On The Run, her joint U.S. tour with husband Jay Z, which kicks off this summer.
