Beyoncé & Jay-Z
Beyoncé first met Jay-Z when she was only 18-years-old and was still with her all-girl group: Destiny’s Child. But that is not when their relationship started. The power couple are not very open about the details of their relationship but what is known is that they dated for four years before their fans got to know. In 2008, Beyoncé and Jay-Z took their relationship to the next level and got married. The affluent couple had a super-secret ceremony in Jay-Z’s apartment in New York City.

This music power couple is worth $1.25 billion. They earned their wealth mainly through music producing credits, album sales, live performances, and worldwide tours. That number may have even risen after the conclusion of their On The Run II stadium tour, which, according to Forbes, was raking in $5 million a night.

They both have significant stakes in music streaming service Tidal, and Jay-Z has stakes in Armand de Brignac champagne and D’ussé cognac. With an estimated net worth of $900 million, most of Jay-Z’s wealth comes from his entertainment company, Roc Nation. He’s also invested in Jetsmarter and signed a 10-year, $200 million deal with Live Nation last year.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé has an estimated net worth of $355 million. Her Formation World Tour grossed a quarter of a billion dollars, and she has a line of gym wear and an on-demand vegan meal delivery service.

Some of their greatest collaborations together include: Drunk In Love, 03 Bonnie & Clyde, Lift Off, Déjà Vu and Upgrade U.
