Although the superstar couple was beaten out by Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris for the #1 spot on Forbes’ “World’s Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples 2015” list, they still managed to bring in $110.5 million. Their combined annual income earned Jay Z and Beyonce the #2 spot on Forbes’ list.
Despite this year’s ranking, Jay and Bey were able to obtain the #1 spot in 2013.
“They may no longer top the list of highest earning couples, but these media favorites have no trouble bringing in the millions. The pair, who recently celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary, collaborated this year for their co-headlined On the Run tour, which was the fifth highest grossing excursion of 2014, despite only playing 22 shows in our scoring period,” Forbes wrote.
Also featured on the list were country stars Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton with $57 million. Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris earned $146 million.
Both Jay Z and Beyonce have been featured on a number of Forbes’ celebrity earners lists. Last year, Beyonce was featured at #1 on Forbes’ “Celebrity 100” list. This year, Jay Z was able to secure the #3 spot on Forbes’ “Hip Hop’s Wealthiest Artists 2015” list with a net worth of $550 million.
