Six months after seeing her net worth cross the half-a-billion dollar mark, global music and entertainment icon, Beyonce Knowles is edging closer to $1 billion, securing her position among the world’s wealthiest Black individuals, according to the latest report by Forbes.
Forbes, a leading U.S. business magazine that tracks the fortunes of the world’s wealthiest, reveals that Beyonce’s net worth has soared to an impressive $800 million, marking a significant increase from $540 million at the start of this week.
The surge in her wealth can be attributed to strategic business moves and recent successes. Despite the reported cancellation of her Ivy Park clothing line with Adidas in March, Beyonce swiftly rebounded by announcing a collaboration with fashion house Balmain, aligning it with her latest album.
