It’s Beyoncé’s world, and we’re just living in it!
According to Billboard, the “Dangerously In Love” crooner has officially become the biggest Boxscore earner for 2023 thanks to her “Renaissance World Tour.”

Per the report, Beyoncé drew in roughly $579.8 million, selling 2.8 million tickets to the highly anticipated event, which kicked off on May 10 and concluded on Oct. 1.
The entire tour has been filled with milestones for the Houston, TX, native.
Now that it has fully come to a close, and the numbers are in, the sentiment is still the same.
As previously reported by AFROTECH, her “Renaissance World Tour” was the highest-grossing one of her career, which first began in 1998 when she and her friends and fellow Texans, LaToya Luckett, Latavia Roberson, and Kelly Rowland debuted as Destiny’s Child.
Moreover, when she announced “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé,” which takes viewers through the creative process behind the aforementioned world tour, it caused shares at AMC Entertainment Holdings to spike by 1.5%.
Additionally, when the European leg of her tour closed with a total of $154.4 million in earnings, it made Beyoncé the first woman to be No. 1 on the Top Tours chart in nearly four years.
In true Beyoncé nature, she didn’t rake in all of that money without paying it forward. In fact, her BeyGOOD Foundation, established in 2013, spearheaded several initiatives during her tour stops within the states.
From donating $100,000 in scholarship funding to Detroit students to helping a Chicago wedding and event agency that was facing hardship through a $10,000 gift, Beyoncé’s “Renaissance World Tour” was the gift that kept giving… until the very end.
What’s more, the continued success of the “Break My Soul” singer can serve as a testament to what happens when one simply bets on oneself.
“I started my company [Parkwood Entertainment] and my father taught me so, so much,” Beyoncé said in a speech during the release of her 2013 self-titled album. “When I decided to manage myself, it was important that I didn’t go to some big management company. I felt like I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and be my own powerhouse and have my own empire and show other women when you get to this point in your career, you don’t have to sign with someone else and share your money and your success.”
These wins are proof that the risk may have totally been worth the reward in the end!
