Beyoncé & Jay-Z Named Music’s First Billionaire Couple

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been named the first couple in music ever to become billionaires.
According to the International Business Times, the pair reached the dizzying financial status this year.
It is thought that, although both have enjoyed incredible career success, Beyoncé's recent earnings through sales from her Mrs Carter World Tour, Pepsi and H&M collaborations pushed their collective earnings over the milestone mark.
The singer is rumoured to have made approximately $116million from The Mrs Carter Show, her $50million endorsement deal with Pepsi, and her H&M salary is also thought to be in the millions.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z estimated worth is $475million as published by Forbes few weeks ago. The pop icon has enjoyed considerable earnings as the co-founder of Roc Nation, co-owner of the 40/40 nightclub and co-creator of fashion label Rocawear. He also has shares in the Brooklyn Nets basketball team. Jay-Z has sold over 50million albums worldwide. He recently completed work as the executive producer of The Great Gatsby soundtrack.
