Music’s power couple just got a whole lot richer. Beyoncé and Jay Z’s combined net worth has officially passed the billion-dollar mark.
Forbes first reported the news yesterday after releasing its list of America’s Wealthiest Self-Made Women. Beyoncé, ranks number 46 on the list with a net worth of $350 million. Jay Z’s net worth has jumped to $810 million since last year, scoring him the number-two spot on Forbes’ Richest in Hip-Hop of 2017 list, released last week.
Together, the couple is worth a total of $1.16 billion. Jay Z’s net worth which is just a cool $10 million less than Sean “Diddy” Combs skyrocketed after Sprint invested $200 million in Tidal, his popular streaming service company. It was widely reported last week that the rapper also signed a $200 million deal with Live Nation that would span 10 years.
Beyoncé, who is pregnant with twins, earned some serious cash last year on her Formation World Tour in support of her sixth solo album, “Lemonade.” It’s been over a year since she released the record and its accompanying visuals, but that hasn’t stopped the album from continuing to rake in awards and praise.
