Beyoncé has done it again. After breaking Billboard Boxscore’s record of $127.6 million in sales for her Renaissance World Tour for the month of July, she has now earned $179.3 million in the month of August while performing 14 shows last month.

The record beats Bad Bunny’s $123.7 million from September of last year. Dating back to 1985, the Billboard Boxscore tracks touring data while ranking the top live musical acts from around the world.

The I’m That Girl megastar has now notched two of just four $100 million months since the charts launched in 2019. Bad Bunny and Harry Styles are the only other two performers to achieve the feat.

After leading the pack in touring from May and July, the Houston native lands her third month at No. 1, putting her in a four-way tie with Ed Sheeran, the Rolling Stones and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Bad Bunny spent four months at No. 1, while Elton John is currently in the lead with seven.

With her extensive earnings, Beyoncé clinched the month’s uppermost attendance total for the first time, after falling short of Coldplay in May and The Weeknd in July. Her 14 shows grossed a total amount of over half a million tickets sold, with a total of approximately 697,000 tickets.

“After crowning Top Boxscores in July with two shows at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Beyoncé ups the ante with three shows at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium,” according to a Billboard report. “The triple-header grossed $39.8 million and sold 156,000 tickets on Aug. 11-12 and 14. That puts it among the top 10 grossing headline engagements ever, and the third highest in North America. The only two bigger reports are courtesy of Harry Styles, with 15-show runs at Madison Square Garden and the Kia Forum, making for an apples-to-oranges comparison to Beyoncé’s three-night stadium sweep.”

From Aug. 6-7 at FedEx Field in Landover, Md, Beyoncé raked in $29.4 million and $25.8 million on Aug. 26-27 at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium, respectively. Those three tour stops alone would be enough for No. 1 on Top Tours, previously totaling the other seven shows she performed between Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. on Aug. 1 and Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. on Aug. 30.

The mother of three’s world tour officially ends this coming Sunday, Oct. 1. “With 10 shows left to be reported, its global haul will blow past the $500 million mark, likely closer to $560 million,” the report added. “That will be enough to situate it among Boxscore’s 10 highest grossing tours ever. As of now, it’d make her the only woman, only Black artist, and only American solo act on the all-time leaderboard.”
