Beyonce and Jay-Z are bringing a new meaning to the 2014 remix of her song “Flawless” when she said, “Of course sometime s**t goes down when it’s a billion dollars on the elevator.” According to Forbes, the couple who married in 2008, now have a combined net worth of a whopping $1.6 billion. Beyonce is reportedly worth $350 million, while husband Jay-Z is worth $810 million. Most of Jay’s money are in investments that include, music streaming service Tidal, Roc Nation, Dusse and a $200 million dollar deal with Live Nation that was inked last week. Yonce on the other hand has been a non stop mega force in the music industry since hitting the scene in the late 90’s. She also owns a stake in Tidal and has investments of her own including the beverage WTRMLN WTR.
The Carters have definitely made quite a life for themselves and both came from humble beginnings. Beyonce grew up middle class in Houston, Texas, while Jay-Z hails from the Mercy Projects in Brooklyn, New York. It was destined for them to be great as they are one of the most hard-working, smart and determined entertainers in the music industry. In recent years, the couple has donated money to good causes and have used their star power to take a stand with the Black Lives Matter Movement. Beyonce featured the Mother’s of The Movement in her 2016 Lemonade mini movie. They continue to be an important attribute to society off the stage.
The couple who already have a daughter, Blue Ivy, are expecting twin sometime this summer. We have a feeling the Carters will continue to build their empire and legacy high. Congrats to Beyonce and Jay-Z on officially joining the billion dollar club.
