Swizz Beatz has produced plenty of hit singles and has seen success in the production, rap, and DJing industries

Beatz, who has been married to Keys since 2010, has seen a lot of success in the music industry, but in very different ways from his wife. Most of his monetary success has come from being a record producer. Over the past two decades, Beatz has produced many high-performing singles from artists such as Beyoncé, Jay Z, Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, and more. He’s been named one of the top 50 greatest hip-hope producers, and was touted by Kanye West as the best rap producer of all time. In 2010, he became the “producer in residence” at New York University, and remained so for the whole school year. Beatz married Keys in 2010, and the couple has two children together.

Today, Beatz is worth an estimated $65 million

Beatz might not be as well-known to some as his wife is, but he still has had a massively successful career. In addition to being a record producer, Beatz has also dabbled in DJing and rapping. Plus, he’s gotten involved in other business ventures related to fashion and art. In 2010, he launched a sneaker line in partnership with Reebok. He has grown a very expensive art collection as well. Today, he’s worth an estimated $65 million.

Alicia Keys is a Grammy-Award-winning singer whose career has been strong for nearly two decades

She became tied for the most Grammy wins for a female solo artist in one year.
