Is Beyoncé a Billionaire?
This artist is on Forbes’ list of wealthist self-made women. She’s married to rapper, producer, and owner of Tidal, Jay-Z. She’s also one of the most influential women in the music industry. It’s no wonder that Beyoncé Knowles-Carter has an impressive net worth. Here are a few of Beyoncé’s current projects, including Homecoming and Disney’s live-action The Lion King.
Beyoncé released her documentary ‘Homecoming’ on Netflix
Whether she’s voice-acting for Disney’s The Lion King, touring with her husband Jay-Z, or giving a historic Coachella performance, a diva’s work is never finished.
To bring that Coachella performance to worldwide fans, Beyoncé partnered with Netflix to make a documentary, entitled Homecoming. According to Variety, the singer landed a $60 million deal with the streaming platform. According to Vulture, HBO was also interested in the project, after having aired Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s live performance during their “On The Run” tour.
Beyoncé Knowles-Carther also landed deals with major brands and clothing labels, like Top Shop, to make her line of activewear clothing, Ivy Park.
The artist cofounded her own clothing line, ‘Ivy Park’
She’s a singer, a dancer, an activist, and, surprisingly, an entrepreneur. In 2016, Beyoncé co-founded the line of activewear, Ivy Park, with the London-based fashion retailer, Topshop.
The singer also recently cut a deal with the video streaming service, Netflix. The partnership includes three movies, one of which being “Homecoming,” the documentary detailing Beyoncé’s 2018 Coachella performance. According to Forbes, the artist’s net worth is about $400 million, taking into account money from live performances, music sales, Ivy Park, and Netflix.
In June 2019, Beyoncé earned the No. 51 spot on Forbes‘ list of wealthiest self-made women. This makes her wealthier than other celebrities, including Kim Kardashian-West, Taylor Swift, and Serena Williams.
Jay-Z owns the streaming service ‘Tidal’
Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z doesn’t just sit on the sidelines. In addition to being a rapper and producer, Jay-Z owns a portion of the music streaming service, Tidal. According to The Verge, as of 2018 and according to Jay-Z, “who has a vested interest in his company’s numbers, Tidal has approximately 3 million subscribers.” For a few years, Tidal exclusively had the streaming rights to Beyoncé’s 2016 album Lemonade.
In 2018, the duo released an album together, Everything is Love, and earned the Grammy Award for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Their song “Apes**t” has over 145 million plays on Spotify.
“Their careers blossomed together,” explained producer Jim Jonsin in an interview with Zack O’Malley Greenburg. “He attached himself to all her fans, and then they went and got into his stuff. The same goes for her … they’re the president and first lady of the music industry.”
Beyoncé stars in Disney’s live-action ‘The Lion King’
One of Beyoncé’s latest projects includes voicing the lioness Nala in Disney’s live-action production of The Lion King. This movie tells the story of Simba, as he grows into an adult lion and earns his place as king of his pride. It is unclear if Beyoncé will be singing “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” in this adaptation, but fans wait breathlessly until the July 2019 release.
It is unknown when Beyoncé will release new music. Recently, the artist released Homecoming: The Live Album and Lemonade on Spotify, Tidal, and most other streaming platforms.
