The Carter family continues add to the win column.

This week it was announced that Beyonce will surpass Michael Jackson as the highest paid Black entertainer of all-time. The success of her Mrs. Carter world tour pushed her over the top.

Beyonce pocketed $212 million for the year-long tour. She sold over 1.8 million tickets across 126 dates according to Billboard.

The star’s most recent dates in Europe – which spanned across 25 dates from February to March – earned her $41.1 million (£26m) alone.

The tour largely traveled before the release of Beyoncé’s self-titled fifth studio album, which came in December 2013.
