Jay Z, Beyonce Top Forbes’ Highest-Earning Celebrity Couples List
This shouldn’t be a shocker. Jay Z and Beyonce have been crowned the highest-earning celebrity couple by Forbes magazine. According to the business publication, Jayonce earned $95 million from June 2012 to June 2013. Now that’s a lot of cheddar.
The powerhouse couple’s salaries come from their touring, album sales and corporate partnerships.
Hov toured extensively behind the release of ‘Watch the Throne’ and pocketed $1.4 million per night. Meanwhile, Queen Bey came back and conquered the stage with her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, raking in $2 million a night. You go girl!
But let’s not forget about the endorsement deals. Beyonce’s branding partnership with Pepsi earned her $50 Million. Furthermore, the R&B superstar is getting paper from her fragrance collection and her clothing line, House of Deron.
Of course, Jay Z made a killing with his innovative deal with tech company Samsung, which bought 1 million copies of his album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ at $5 apiece. Also, his stake in the Brooklyn Nets was profitable but he must now relinquish all assets with the organization since he started his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports.
In the end, Jay Z and Beyonce are making more cake than a bakery.
Congratulations Jay and Bey! Um, can we borrow $1 million? Just kidding.
