Money Couple: Jay-Z and Beyonce Named Music’s First Billion Dollar Couple
No amount of controversy is stopping The Carters from cashing in HARD at the bank. The powerhouse couple have reportedly just been named music’s first billionaire couple.
Love ’em or hate ’em, Jay-Z & Beyonce have turned their last 10+ years as a couple into a billion dollar empire.
According to International Business Times, Shawn Carter & Beyonce Knowles Carter are the first couple in music to join the billion dollar club with their joint incomes.
The dual 2013 VOGUE cover girl is reportedly set to rake in $116 million on her Mrs. Carter World Tour. And in addition to that rumored $50 mill Pepsi campaign and multi million dollar H&M campaign, Beyonce helped pushed the couple’s joint money power across that billion dollar mark this year.
Jay is super successful in his own right, of course, constantly topping FORBES richest Hip Hop artists lists and his stakes in beauty companies, music companies and sports teams. And now, pending his approval from the NFLPA commission, he’s about to start funneling NFL clients into his own Roc Nation sports agency, with the help of CAA.
FORBES’ highest paid celebrity couple of 2012 is now our first billionaire couple in music. And since we doubt either of them are about to stop raking in money anytime soon, Blue Ivy and her great grandchil’ren are already set for life!
