Jay Z and Beyoncé have let the world know once again, that they are the boss couple in the industry. The pop queen and rap mogul made Forbes list for Highest Paid Couples in 2016 with combined earnings of $107.5 million dollars!
Queen Bey came in No. 34 on the finance publication’s annual Celebrity 100 list. Her earnings over this past year were $54 million with rap mogul and her hubby Jay Z coming in right behind her, at No. 36 with $53.5 million.
Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade, was one of three albums that sold over one million copies. While majority of Beyoncé’s earnings came from record and concert sales, Jay Z got his earnings from his entertainment company, Roc Nation, and his alcohol brands, Armand de Brignac champagne and D’usse cognac.
The $107.5 million is pre-tax income and once Uncle Sam takes his cut, I’m sure the Queen and King will take home less but they both still made the Celebrity 100 list. Other celebs who joined them was quarterback Tom Brady and his wife, model Giselle Bundchen, who took in $44 million.
As for the highest single paid paid celebrity in 2016 is Taylor Swift with $170.5 million!! Taylor swept box offices with her 1989 World Tour and her promotional work with major brands like Apple and Pepsi!
The whole celebrity list will be dropped this upcoming Tuesday!
