Beyoncé and Jay-Z are each a force to be reckoned with on their own. Together, they make a formidable power couple with a stronghold on their careers. With Jay-Z recently entering the 10 figure plus club, the couple who sang "Got that dinero on my mind" in the song "Boss" on their June 2018 album Everything is Love, have a combined net worth of $1.5 billion. That makes the Carters one of the wealthiest couples in America.
Beyoncé's fan base is enormous, her reach is incredible, and she had a banner year with a $60 million Netflix deal for the documentary Homecoming about her 2018 performance at Coachella. What started as a girl band project with Destiny's Child turned into a solo career that is one of the most successful in the history of the music industry. Ms. Knowles-Carter augmented her net worth over the past year with touring, an album release, merchandise, her Ivy Park line of apparel, and her stake in the music streaming business Tidal. She is one of the most successful self-made American women.
Jay-Z, on the other hand, makes money from touring and albums of course, but he's also a verified business mogul with a portfolio of business that includes liquor, real estate, art, and stakes in companies, including Uber. He is hip hop's first billionaire and most of his money comes from ownership of Armand de Brignac champagne, his cognac partnership with Bacardi, investments, and his stake in the music streaming business Tidal.
The couple met when she collaborated with him on the 2002 song "'03 Bonnie & Clyde." She appeared in the music video as his girlfriend and the internet went wild speculating about their relationship. The couple got married on April 4, 2008 quietly and without publicity. Their daughter Blue Ivy was born in 2012 and their twins Rumi and Sir were born in 2017.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z's combined $1.5 billon net worth makes them one of the most successful couples in the U.S. and definitely the most recognizable. They had thriving careers before they met and their partnership has not only produced three children, but a level of professional success for both of them that would not have been possible without the other.
