The Remarkable Story Behind Beyonce and Jay-Z’s $1.5 Billion Net Worth
The world is captivated by the billionaires who dominate the rankings of the richest people alive, especially the founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, who is currently reigning at the top spot as the richest man alive with a remarkable net worth of around $131 billion — even after losing half of his wealth to estranged wife, MacKenzie.
But the couples whose cumulative net worth amounts to more than a billion dollars seldom get as much recognition, even if they are as famous as Beyonce and Jay-Z.
However, we bet neither Beyonce nor Jay-Z cares about whether the world acknowledges their riches because they are surely living the lifestyle of the rich and famous.
While they may not be as rich as some of the corporate giants out there, but in the entertainment industry, their combined riches certainly earn them a respectable spot among the Hollywood elite.
Among the Wealthiest
The Carters are worth an estimated $1.5 billion today if you tally up the wealth owned by both Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z. This figure should not surprise anyone considering the enormous fame and solid fan following enjoyed by Beyonce, which means she is able to negotiate her way through deals very nicely.
For example, her Netflix documentary called Homecoming, which covers the events around her Coachella performance back in the year 2018, earned Beyonce a staggering $60 million — and Netflix had no problem coughing up that amount to please the Queen.
Considering Beyonce’s humble beginnings in the entertainment industry, having started her career as part of a band called Destiny’s Child, it is remarkable how she worked her way up to build herself into a huge brand, eventually emerging as one of the most iconic musicians in history.
Her total worth considerably improved in the previous year thanks to the release of an album, consistent touring efforts, sales of her merchandise as well as her apparel line called Ivy Park.
Knowles is also a wise investor, earning through the stake she owns several companies including the streaming service called Tidal. Considering all of this, Beyonce is a true definition of a self-made successful woman.
Jay-Z The Mogul
While most of Beyonce’s wealth has come her way due to her amazing talent, for Jay-Z, making money meant owning or investing in successful businesses.
Although he is a formidable musician in his own rights who has made a significant amount of money through the sale of his albums as well as tour tickets, Jay-Z also has a well-diversified portfolio of investments in many industries such as real estate and art, to name just a couple.
Some of Jay-Z’s other successful investments include his champagne brand called Armand de Brignac, and his Bacardi partnership for cognac. Just like Beyonce, Jay-Z also has investments in Tidal.
How They Met
You may think that Beyonce and Jay-Z found each other after they had become super rich, but that is not the case. Apparently, the first time they met was back in the year 2002 when they were working together on a song.
Since both of them appeared in the music video together, there was a lot of speculation about the nature of their relationship in tabloids. This speculation continued until the two secretly tied the knot in the year 2008.
