Beyonce and Jay-Z are rolling in dough. The hip-hop duo, who wed in April 2008 and welcomed daughter Blue Ivylast year, is reportedly worth more that a billion dollars, making them music’s first billionaire couple.
While both artists have enjoyed equally successful careers, Queen Bey’s current world tour and endorsement deals with Pepsi and H&M have pushed their total earnings over the billion dollar mark. It’s estimated that the singer, 31, will make approximately $116 million from The Mrs. Carter Show alone.Likewise, Jay-Z has earned plenty of bacon as the co-founder of Roc Nation, co-owner of the 40/40 nightclub, co-creator of fashion label Rocawear and the former CEO of Def Jam Recordings. He’s also sold approximately 50 million albums worldwide.
The 43-year-old rapper also holds shares in the Brooklyn Nets basketball team, but has recently relinquish his ownership to pursue representing professional athletes with Roc Nation Sports. In 2012, Forbes named Bey and Jay the highest paid celebrity couple, amassing approximately $78 million in total. “Bow Down,” indeed!
