In the mid 2000s Janet Jackson‘s career found itself hanging in the balance thanks to blows it had received from Super Bowl gate, some creative missteps and the pressure to compete in a business determined to erase her contributions to Pop culture.
Now, after taking time away from the spotlight, Jackson finds herself enjoying what may be the best comeback story in years, powered by sold-out tours, new music and her decision to play by her own rules.
The sum of her success? $11 million.
Awesome news below…
Janet generated $10.9 million from touring alone this year making her one of the highest-earning acts in the world and securing her a spot on Billboard’s Highest-Paid Musicians list!
Below her? Taylor Swift.
Why? Taylor’s epic ‘Reputation World Tour’ kicked off in May meaning Billboard was unable to include its earnings when compiling this list.
The good news?
She made the list thanks to her astronomically high music sales.
Sales, which were elevated by the $2.4 million she’s earned from streaming, the $5 million she bagged via pure units and the $2 million she sees from publishing!
Congratulations to all!
