Jay-Z and Beyonce Are a Billionaire Couple According to Forbes
Beyonce can add another B to her illustrious name as she and her hubby, Jay-Z, are officially a billionaire couple.
Queen Bey graces Forbes magazine’s America's Wealthiest Self-Made Women list with a net worth of $350 million. If you add Jay-Z’s earnings - $810 million - from this year's Forbes Five List, altogether, Jay and Bey are worth $1.16 billion and counting.
When asked how she pulled it off, Beyonce told Forbes, "I'm never satisfied. I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry.”
We really can't argue with that. Within the past year, Beyonce has been touring and promoting her Grammy-winning album, Lemonade. Her "Formation Tour" grossed over $250 million last year. The Carters also have significant equity in the streaming company Tidal. Forbes reports that their stakes in the company skyrocketed when Sprint invested a reported $200 million into the service, which pushed them to the billion mark.
You can expect to see Jay-Z out on the road more since he signed a 10-year, touring deal with Live Nation for $200 million. In the end, a couple who makes money together, stays together.
Congrats to Jay-Z and Beyonce on their billionaire status.
