ON THE RUN II GROSSED $254 MILLION: In 2018, Jay-Z became the first artist in a decade to appear twice on Billboard's year-end Top 25 Tours chart, thanks to his solo 4:44 tour (which grossed $45.5 million) and his joint run with wife Beyoncé, On the Run II ($253.5 million). Outings by Roc Nation's Shakira and J. Cole also added to the coffers, as did Cole and Meek Mill's Billboard 200 No. 1 debuts KOD and Championships, respectively. Roc Nation also unveiled its partnership with Brandon Silverstein's S10 Entertainment & Media. Silverstein, whose roster includes Normani and British singer-songwriter Jacob Banks, will team with Roc Nation on management, label and publishing ventures.
