Jay-Z and Beyonce
Who's worth more? Jay-Z
Based on their careers alone, we're hard-pressed to say who the wealthier one is in this dynamic musical couple. Jay-Z has been making music on his own since the early '90s, while Beyonce didn't break away from Destiny's Child until 2003. Bey has sold more albums worldwide than her husband (75 million to his 50 million), and the foxy singer arguably has a broader appeal, which means she has more earning potential.
But in the end, Jay-Z's overall net worth of $475 million eclipses that of the "Single Ladies" hitmaker. With ventures like his Rocawear clothing line, various endorsements, concert earnings, and ownership stakes in businesses like Def Jam Records and the New Jersey Nets, we're not too surprised! Bey herself is worth a reported $300 million, thanks to her album sales as well as her House of Dereon fashion line, multiple endorsements, and her own fragrance.
