LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 05: Beyoncé accepts Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for “Renaissance” onstage during the 65th GRAMMY Awards at Arena on February 05, 2023 in Los Angeles, California.

Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour kicks off tomorrow (May 10) and according to Forbes she is in for a big payday. The “Cuff It” hitmaker is expected to earn  $2.1 billion from the tour that’s taking her to Europe and North America. If Beyoncé makes the estimated $2.1 billion, she will outsell Taylor Swift’s Eras tour by approximately $500 million. The country-turned-popstar will likely take home $1.6 billion from her tour.

Beyoncé is estimated to make anywhere between $275M to $2.4B from ticket sales alone. Forbes reports that “They also assume the artists take home a considerable share of merchandise proceeds and pay tour expenses of 20% of revenues — leaving them with the other 80%.”

The Renaissance World Tour starts in Stockholm, Sweden and she will start the North American leg of the tour on July 8 in Toronto, Canada. It marks Beyoncé’s tour in five years. Her last tour was the On the Run II Tour with Jay-Z for their joint album Everything Is Love.

Beyoncé's Most Striking Lyrics From 'Renaissance'

  • 1. "I'm That Girl"

    Beyoncé sets the tone for Renaissance with “I’m That Girl.” On the opening track Beyoncé sings, “I pull up in these clothes, look so good/’Cause I’m in that, hoe/You know all these songs sound good/’Cause I’m on that, hoe.” The icon lets her fans know that she has been and forever will be “that girl.”

  • 2. "Cozy"

    “Cozy” is all about being comfortable and confident in all that you are and Beyoncé did just that with the lyrics, “She’s a god, she’s a hero/ She survived all she been through/ Confident, damn, she lethal/Might I suggest you don’t f— with my sis/’Cause she comfortable.”

  • 3. "Alien Superstar"

    “Alien Superstar” was an easy standout favorite and so is one of the most notable lines of the album: “Category, bad bitch I’m the bar.”

  • 4. "Cuff It"

    That “Cuff It” to “Energy” transition lives rent-free in our heads but so does the line, “You Mister Nasty, I’ll clean it up” as Beyoncé channels her “Partition” alter ego on this track.

  • 5. "Energy"

    Beyoncé did not hold back with the line “‘Cause them Karens just turned into terrorists.” Enough said.

  • 6. "Break My Soul"

    When Beyoncé dropped “Break My Soul,” the disco-pop hit went down as the unofficial song of the summer. The line “Ain’t takin’ no flicks but the whole clique snapped” is reminiscent of summer and a very accurate depiction of an unforgettable girls night out.

  • 7. "Plastic Off The Sofa"

    “Plastic Off The Sofa” is a beautiful love song but the giggle after Bey delivers the line, “I think you’re so cool (even though I’m cooler than you)” shows off a piece of her personality that is not always seen.

  • 8. "Church Girl"

    On “Church Girl,” Beyoncé brought back an old school saying with the line,”She gon’ shake that a– and them pretty tig ol’ bitties.”

  • 9. "Virgo's Groove"

    You already know how Beyoncé loves a water sport reference (i.e. Drunk in Love’s “surfboart” line) and in “Virgo’s Groove” she does just that with the line,”Cuddled up on the couch/Motorboat, baby, spin around/Slow-mo coming out my blouse.”

  • 10. "Move"

    Beyoncé is never shy talking about her spirituality so it comes to know surprise that the Moses’ Red Sea reference found its way on Renaissance with the line, “When the queen come through, part like the Red Sea/ Move out the way”

  • 11. "Heated"

    On the track, co-wrritten by Drake, Beyoncé shouts out her late Uncle Johnny who she dedicated Renaissance to. Her uncle with the help of her mother Tina Knowles, made several outfits for Destiny’s Child.

    The line: “Uncle Johnny made my dress/ That cheap Spandex, she looks a mess”

  • 12. Thique

    On “Thique,” Beyoncé celebrates her curves with the line “That’s that thique, that’s that real s—.”

  • 13. "All Up In Your Mind"

    In “All Up In Your Mind,” Beyoncé poses the question, “Is my love a crime ’cause I wanna make you mine?”

  • 14. "America Has A Problem"

    “America Has A Problem” and its that we can’t stop listening to this album. This track is the most rap-heavy of all the songs on Renaissance and Beyoncé proves she has bars. “Your ex-dealer dope, but ain’t crack enough” is one of the hottest bars on the record.

  • 15. "Pure/Honey"

    We all felt it when Beyoncé sang, “Bad bitches to the left, money bitches to the right” on “Pure/Honey” as we try to run to both sides in the club.

  • 16. "Summer Renaissance"

    You know once you get to “Summer Renaissance” that you’re at the end. But, before Beyoncé leaves, she shouts out the black-owned fashion house Telfar because you know Bey is always on trend.

    The line: “This Telfar bag imported, Birkins, them s—- in storage.”
