Looks like our favorite power couple are back at the top of being the highest-paid celebrity couple. According to the  Forbes Celebrity 100 list, Jay Z and Beyoncé topped the list taking in a regal $107.5 million USD with Bey placing at No. 34 with $54 million and Jay placing at No. 36 with $53.5 million. Beyoncé’s earnings came in large part due to her No. 1 album Lemonade which debuted on Jay Z’s streaming service Tidal (which is also co-owned by other Celebrity 100 artists).

Bey took the slight edge from her 19-show Formation World Tour while Jay Z continues to make bank on his Armand de Brignac champagne, D’Ussé cognac and entertainment company Roc Nation. Last time Queen B and Hova topped the list was back in 2013. Last year’s title went to Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris. If it wasn’t for T-Swizzle’s break-up to be with Loki, the couple would have topped the list again this year. Swift topped the list at No. 1 earning a large $170 million USD and Harris took the No. 21 spot with $63 million. Check back in with Forbes to see just exactly how much they made along with other celebrities who topped the list.
