Beyoncé and Jay-Z Define Power-Couple as They Gain a Combined Net Worth of $1.5 Billion
Jay-Z and Beyoncé are one of the showbiz industry’s power couples. They both have built their careers respectively, and continue to grow their empire together.
Jay-Z is the Richest Rap Artist of 2019
The rap-artist Shawn Carter, widely known as Jay-Z, has released thirteen successful albums from 1996 to 20018. He produced his first album Reasonable Doubt through the record label Roc-A-Fella Records that he’s co-founding.
The musical anthologies, The Blueprint in 2001 and The Black Album, gained some positive reviews from critics as he switched to a modern musical style. In his most recent artistry, he collaborated with his wife Beyoncé and Kanye West in releasing the album Everything is Love.
The Forbes Magazine hailed him as the most-wealthiest rap artist of 2019 with a net worth of $1 billion, but Jay-Z’s riches didn’t just come from his music career. He is also making smart investment moves in the Wall Street market. The rapper has bought stakes in several companies such as Tidal and is one of the pioneer investors of the world’s leading ride-hailing company, Uber. He has also signed a partnership deal with Bacardi for the champagne brand Armand de Brignac.
Beyonce Dominates the Music, Film, and Fashion Industry
Meanwhile, the 37-year-old singer-songwriter Beyoncé started her singing career as a member of the girl group Destiny’s Child, but she has been working on her solo career as well while acting as the lead singer of the R&B gal group.
She released her first solo album Dangerously in Love in 2003 with Columbia Records and Music World Entertainment which was a huge success. Beyoncé received numerous recognition from the album including five Grammy Awards.
Beyoncé closed a $60 million deal with Netflix for the documentary film Homecoming which will showcase her 2018 Coachella performances and exclusive behind-the-scenes clips. She will also star in the upcoming Lion King movie this coming July 19 as the voice of the character Nala.
Just like her husband Jay-Z, she also has several business ventures such as the entertainment company Parkwood Entertainment, which she founded in 2010. Her appeal got her plenty of brand endorsements too, and she founded a couple of fashion lines such as the House of Deréon and Ivy Park.
Tow Heads are Better than One
Combining all these musical successes, investments, and film revenues, the couple’s net worth reaches $1.5 billion. We guess it’s true that two heads are better than one. Both of them are individually successful, but merging their talents and skills, made them way richer than they could ever imagine.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé got married on April 4, 2008, and have three children together. Their eldest, Blue Ivy was born in 2012, followed by their twins Rumi and Sir in 2017.
