The Carter’s Dubbed As Music’s First Billionaire Couple

Jay-Z and Beyonce

Beyonce and Jay-Z truly represent the sayings, “two is better than one” and “we’re better together than we are apart.” 

Mr. & Mrs. Carter have just been dubbed as the music industry’s first billionaire couple by the International Business Times. Both of them make millions on their own and are equally successful, but together they’re at billionaire status.  Must be nice!!

It’s reported that what set them over the top was Beyonce’s expected earnings from “The Mrs. Carter Show” world tour, and her recent deals with Pepsi and H&M.  It’s estimated that Beyonce’ will earn close to $116 million from her tour alone. Her hubby Jay-Z is bringing in the dough as well.  He’s still the co-owner of the 40/40 Club, co-founder of Roc Nation, and recently launched Roc Nation Sports, a sports management agency.  Jay-Z came in 2nd place on Forbes’ list of top money earners in hip hop with a total of $475 million made in 2012.  Forbes also named Beyonce’ and Jay-Z as the highest paid celebrity couple in 2012.

Let’s not even mention past earnings…

Beyonce’ also has an endorsement deal with L’Oreal and the superstar has sold over 75 million records worldwide, that have won her 17 Grammy Awards.  She’s also starred in films such as The Fighting Temptations, Dreamgirls, Cadillac Records, and Obsessed.  Jay-Z has sold 50 million albums during the span of his career.

The cray cray part about this is that they’re not done.  Jay-Z has a tour coming up this summer with Justin Timberlake, there’s no telling how much he’ll make from his sports agency, they both have new albums coming out this year, and I know Beyonce’ has more acting roles in her future.

Jay-Z and Beyonce’ have been together for 10 years.  I wonder what their status will be 10 years from now….??
