In a statement to Forbes, Beyonce once said, “I’m never satisfied. I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry.” Beyonce has been hitting the road of fame and wealth since she got involved in the industry; she earned around a quarter of a billion dollars from her Formation World Tour in late 2016.
Furthermore, Jay Z has earned $200 million for performing in huge festival dates this summer as he entered into a contract with Live Nation last week.
“This renewed partnership is a testament to our longstanding relationship and the talented individuals at Live Nation,” Jay Z said in a statement. “For the next ten years, we will continue redefining the live event landscape.”
Beyoncé and Jay Z have purchased companies, including Roc Nation, Armand de Brignac and others.
The couple also own Tidal, the streaming service Jay Z bought for a whopping price of $56 million two years ago. The fact that they have stocks in the company has added value into it as Sprint purportedly invested $200 million for a 33% of the company.
