With the world’s largest music festival set to kick off in Canada this week, fans of Beyoncé have been asking the questions they’ve been asking themselves about the singer for years.
How does she look?
Does she sing?
Does her music reflect her culture?
How do she act?
How much does Beyoncé actually get paid?
As it turns out, Beyoncé has a very different deal with her record label than other artists.
According to a new report from Billboard, the star and her management company, Core Group, are receiving millions of dollars per year in licensing fees from major record labels.
In the case of Beyonce, that means the label is paying her about $500,000 per year for the right to use her name on their catalog.
In the case, of course, of other artists, like Beyoncé herself.
Billboard says that Beyoncé’s label is making about $1.5 million per year from each album sold, and that includes royalties from streaming services like Spotify and Pandora.
That’s a lot of money for a singer who, for all intents and purposes, is just another celebrity.
The singer’s music is basically a hit or miss affair, and she gets to use a lot less of it.
In fact, Billboard reports that Beyonce only makes about $60,000 from a single album sold.
That’s the same as the average artist making about a half-million dollars from a record, according to Billboard’s analysis.
While the terms of Beyoncys contract with her label are confidential, the report suggests that her deal is far less generous than most artists.
That may explain why she’s getting more than her fair share of money, considering her songwriting credits alone account for $6.3 million.
In fact, Beyonce has been paid a lot more than the average songwriter and musician since the 1970s.
Beyoncé made $2 million in 2012 alone, Billboard says.
She has a long history of making money off her songs, and has been the subject of multiple investigations.
In 2008, an investigation by Rolling Stone found that Beyoncies label, Core Music, was a shell company for her, using her name to sign other artists to music deals.
In a 2011 interview with Rolling Stone, Beyoncsey revealed that she earned over $8 million from her label in 2010 alone, which would make her about the richest songwriter of all time.
She also said that the company she co-founded, the Beyoncé Music Collective, made $3.3 billion from music licensing alone.
As for her song royalties, Beyonces songwriting credit is a big part of her brand, and the reports suggest that her record deal with Core Group is a huge part of that.
She gets to keep her music rights, and her label has the right not to use Beyonce’s name on its catalog.
She’s also given up a lot for her rights, too, which is why she gets a lot from streaming.
While it’s unlikely that Beyonces songs will ever reach the heights of her music career, Beyoncos music career is a little longer than the other artists that have been making big money off of her songs.
She has also gotten paid a ton for the “I Love You, Daddy” video that went viral earlier this year.
While she’s still on the charts, her song has been downloaded over 15 million times.
