Notably, she secured the 48th spot on Forbes’ esteemed power list, America’s Richest Self-Made Women, in June.
The Renaissance World Tour, which commenced in May with a European leg and concluded in North America in September, proved to be a monumental success.
Beyoncé’s tour revenue reached an astounding $579 million, setting a new record as the highest-grossing tour by any Black artist.
Forbes estimates that Beyoncé’s music catalog contributes $300 million to her net worth, with the remainder stemming from shared personal assets with husband Jay-Z and business holdings in Parkwood Entertainment, her company.
The power couple acquired a historic $200 million mansion in Malibu, reportedly making it California’s most expensive home.
Beyoncé’s directorial debut, “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé,” further fueled her financial ascent. The film, reaching the pinnacle as the No. 1 film at the U.S. box office in its debut week, amassed an impressive $21 million domestically and an additional $6 million globally.
Attending the London premiere of the film, Beyoncé garnered support from fellow artist Taylor Swift, highlighting the mutual admiration between the two global stars.
In a strategic partnership akin to Swift’s collaboration with AMC Theaters, Beyoncé exclusively showcased her concert film at select locations, contributing to her multifaceted success in 2023.
Swift, in her recent TIME profile, lauded Beyoncé as a “precious gem of a person” and a “great disrupter of music-industry norms,” acknowledging her transformative influence on the industry.
