Beyoncé and Jay-Z Break A Billion
The Carters have reportedly become the first billion dollar couple in music.
Here’s one more reason to “Bow Down” when Beyoncé hits the stage at the Staples Center on Friday June 28 to kick off the BET Experience. Mrs. Carter and her man are officially the first billion-dollar couple in music history.
The International Business Times is reporting that the profits from Young B’s Mrs. Carter tour (reportedly $116 million) as well as her recent H&M campaign have pushed the power couple over the nine-figure threshold.
In case you’re keeping score, Beyoncé has also done endorsement deals with L’Oreal and Tommy Hilfiger, racked up 17 Grammy Awards, and sold over 75 million records worldwide. And that’s not counting her film career.
All that plus she’s raising her daughter Blue Ivy and buying her man private jets for father’s day. (Of course Jay’s got a few assets of his own, but you already know about Roc Nation and the New Jersey Nets.) So when she says “I Been On” you’d best believe her.
