According to Forbes, hip-hop and business savvy couple, Jay Z and Beyoncé made nearly $95 million last year.
The pair's high-earnings were due in large part to tours, album sales and business deals. Jay Z's platinum album, Watch the Throne, and world tour grossed nearly $1.4 million per night in the US. Beyoncé, who took a brief hiatus after their daughter Blue Ivy was born, roared back with the Mrs. Carter Show world tour, which has raked in an average of $2 million per night.
The couple also have big business investments that fueled their high-earnings. Jay Z started his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports, representing star athletes including Robinson Cano and Victor Cruz. He was a part-owner of the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where the Brooklyn Nets play; he sold his stake in the team and will dump his share in the arena as well. Bey continues to make her mark in the fashion and beauty world, with her clothing line the House of Deron and fragrance collection.
