Jay Z and Beyonce have zipped many lips since the beginning of their ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ union. The power couple continues to prove their hater’s wrong by breaking all kinds of records industry wise and finacially! According to International Business Times, Shawn Carter & Beyonce Giselle Knowles-Carter are the first couple in music to join the billion dollar club with their joint income.
This is what vogue.co.uk had to say about the Brooklyn/Texan money-making union, and who is the real bread winner!
“While both husband and wife have enjoyed equally successful careers, it’s thought that Beyoncé’s current world tour and recent collaborations with Pepsi and H&M have pushed the couples’ earnings over the billion dollar mark. According to tabloid reports, the singer will make approximately $116 million (£75 million) from The Mrs Carter Show, while her H&M earnings are also thought to be in the millions.
Throughout her career, the 31-year-old has worked as an ambassador for brands including L’Oreal and Tommy Hilfiger; enjoyed a successful acting career – starring in films such as Dreamgirls, Cadillac Records and The Fighting Temptations; won 17 Grammy Awards and sold over 75 million records worldwide, including her work with Destiny’s Child. Most recently, she joined Gucci’s Chime for Change campaign, helping to raise funds and awareness of women’s issues worldwide.
Likewise, Jay-Z has earned considerable money from being co-founder of Roc Nation; co-owner of the 40/40 nightclub; co-creator of fashion label Rocawear; former CEO of Def Jam Recordings and through his shares in the Brooklyn Nets basketball. The rapper-cum-producer has also sold approximately 50 million albums worldwide.”
UGH what I’d do to be reincarnated as Blu Ivy Carter!
