Beyonce and Jay Z are the World's Highest-Paid Celebrity Couple of 2016
Queen Beyonce and husband Jay Z are this year’s highest-paid celebrity couple, raking in $107.5 million over the past year. The sultry songstress pulled in $54 million, good enough to claim the No. 34 spot on the Celebrity 100 list—the annual ranking of the world’s top-earning superstars. Jay Z finished at No. 36 slot with a $53.5 million tally.
Both got a boost from Beyoncé’s sixth No. 1 album, Lemonade, which debuted exclusively on Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service.
Though Jay Z didn’t tour over the past year, he was plenty busy behind the scenes with other projects. He continues to make millions on his Armand de Brignac champagne, D’Ussé cognac and entertainment company Roc Nation.
The multifaceted organization includes a record label, artist management and a sports agency that represents the likes of Kevin Durant and Robinson Cano.
