Although artists like Janet Jackson and Taylor Swift are already in the swing of their respective world tours they understand they’re merely appetizers as the main course, Beyoncé, prepares to empty everyone’s pockets with her expensive tour. When she dropped Renaissance last year, the world stopped and dropped it like a thotty for months in anticipation of her re-emergence to the world stage. Now it’s being reported that Queen Bey will gladly buzz all the way to the bank at the end of this multi-city shakedown to the tune of $2.4 billion. And that’s $500 million more than what Taylor’s Eras tour will see once she steps aside for Queen Bey’s summer reign.

I guess you could say that it’s dune some decent box office numbers. All jokes aside, Dune is dune some major dollars, and actually broke some records this weekend (my last dune joke, I promise).
