Beyoncé and Jay-Z Break A Billion

Beyoncé and Jay-Z Break A Billion

The Carters have reportedly become the first billion dollar couple in music.

Beyonce, Jay-Z

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.

JAY-Z NEW ALBUM 2013

The Internets are buzzing again about a possibility that a new Jay-Z albumwill be dropping this year.

It’s been four years since Based Hov has blessed us with a solo joint but according to Illseed of AllHipHop.com, Jay is currently working on a new solo project that might even feature some new young guns in the game.

From what I have been hearing, Jay is using this tour with Justin Timberlake to set up the new album. I would have expected him to drop it before a major tour but Jay knows what Jay is doing. As for the music, I heard Jay is talking greasy again! I guess he can afford to do that, since he’s still on the court as

a starter. Lots of new bucks coming in the game. Apparently, he’s recorded with one of them already

Are you anticipating a new Jay-Z solo album?

Jay Z Open Letter Lyric

[Intro]
Ladies and gentlemen
Goddamnit
Let this shit knock

[Verse 1]
I done turned Havana to Atlanta
Guayabera shirts and bandanas
Every time you think they got me I switch the planna
Bulletproof this, radio scanners
Ballin’ ’til they ban us
You gettin’ too much bread, they tryna’ jam you
Boy from the hood but got White House clearance
Sorry y’all, I don’t agree with y’all appearance
Politicians never did shit for me
Except lie to me, distort history
Wanna give me jail time and a fine
Fine, let me commit a real crime
I might buy a kilo for Chief Keef
Out of spite, I just might flood these streets
Hear the freedom in my speech
Got an onion from Universal, read it and weep
Would’ve bought the Nets to Brooklyn for free
Except I made millions off it, you fuckin’ dweeb
I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seat
Y’all buy that bullshit, you’d better keep your receipt
Obama said chill, you gonna get me impeached
But you don’t need this shit anyway
Chill with me on the beach

[Hook – Swizz Beatz]
Y’all gon’ learn today

[Verse 2]
Ya’ll almost want to start a revolution
You know whenever I’m threatened, I start shooting, bark
Catch a body, head to Houston
I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans
This communist talk is so confusing
When it’s from China, the very mic that I’m using
Idiot wind, the Bob Dylan of rap music
You’re an idiot baby, you should become a student
Oh, you gonna learn today
Where the fuck have you been
The world’s under new management
The new role model, fuck this Zoolander shit

[Hook]
