Beyoncé said in her 2008 hit "Diva," "Take it to another level, no passengers on my plane," and judging by her latest business move, she's putting her words into action. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Queen Bey has migrated her music touring business from ICM Partners to CAA's music department.
The savvy businesswoman's decision officially makes her an instant signature client for any agency of her choice. Her partial withdrawal from ICM — she's remaining with the company for acting — may hit them pretty hard.
While at ICM, the 20-time-Grammy winner led her 2014 On the Run stadium tour with hubby Jay Z, which grossed more than $100 million from just 19 shows, becoming the second highest grossing tour ever.
Interestingly enough, 'Yoncé initially left CAA for ICM in 2006 after following her longtime motion-picture talent agent Andrea Nelson Meigs. While there, she became one of their signature music clients.
CAA must be over the moon to have signed such a lucrative and high-profile client, as the company has suffered multiple client losses earlier this year. Some of the major clients lost include Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
