In the midst of success of new album, knocking on the door of $200 million
All hail the Queen Bey! Pop superstar Beyonce has been doing the unimaginable lately. First, she dropped her self-titled Beyonce album, which got 617,000 in first week sales, without notice. Second, her album is currently the first album to spend three weeks at number one on the Billboard charts since Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience back in and it’s the first album since 2009 to sell 300,000 copies in EACH of its first three weeks.
Now, Beyonce is taking on another challenge. According to MTV, if Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter World Tour goes according to plan, it will be set to conquer terrain once owned by the likes of Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Diana Ross. Mrs. Carter World Tour was already named the highest grossing concert by a female artist in 2013, but the tour itself keeps becoming more and more successful for the Houston, TX songstress. The tour will break the concert records of the aforementioned women and will make Beyonce the highest paid black musician of all time by grossing $200 million! Did I mention that Beyonce is also the director and executive producer of the entire tour as well? This lady can’t be stopped.
