Beyoncé got paid a hefty $24 million to perform at the grand opening of the new Atlantis The Royal in Dubai.
The grand opening of the Atlantis The Royal was a star-studded event with A-list celebrities and some of the most prestigious people in attendance. Stars like Nia Long, Kendall Jenner, and Winston Duke all made an appearance, not to mention Beyoncé’s husband and rapper Jay-Z along with her family.
The Grammy award-winning artist put together an extravaganza on Saturday night. She opened with her rendition of Etta James’ “At Last,” and performed some of her greatest hits including “Crazy In Love,” “Brown Skin Girl,” (which she performed with her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter), and “Countdown.”
The hourlong VIP concert was her first performance on stage in four years, and she put on a show like no other. It was full of fireworks, lights, an orchestra of 48 women, dancing, and outfit changes.
Queen Bey closed off the concert with a bang when she performed her famous song, “Drunk In Love.” Rising from the stage into the air on a pillar, she belted out the song’s melody as fireworks went off in the background and flames burst from the water fountain.
Needless to say, it was the concert of a lifetime for those who were able to witness it in person.
