December 13th 2013, Beyonce surprised fans and the music industry with the unexpected release of her fifth album Beyonce. After rumors of a possible follow up to the lackluster 4, Beyonce gave no heads up for an official release date or even dropped any promotional singles for her fifth release. Still the album became one of 2013’s biggest selling records. The album went platinum worldwide in the first week and sold over 3 million copies to date. Beyonce is listed as executive producer of the project and co-wrote every track which earns her between $2-$3 per album sold. That’s a salary of almost $3 million in one week. The career driven and hard working Yonce reminds everyone why her net worth is $330 million and could possibly reach $500 million in the next 5 years. She and her hubby Jay are constantly out to expand their careers with business endeavors and a constant discography of hits. Their Hollywood’s most ambitious couples and richest. Their combined net worth is $830 million. In 2014 the continue to stay the richest in the game.
In June 2003, Beyonce branched away from her Destiny’s Child roots and embarked on a solo career with the release of her debut album Dangerously in Love — an R&B-inspired mix of heartfelt ballads, girl power confidence, and a 90s vibe that harked back to the girl group’s sassy “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Bootylicious” — Let’s just say the album was more about the beats and the marketable dance moves than the super power vocals we’ve seen Beyonce slay today (i.e. “Halo”).
As a solo artist Queen B has earned her title selling over 200 million albums worldwide, 5 number 1 singles in America and married to the hottest rapper of all time Jay-Z. Knowles earned her net worth as an independent woman but can chill cause Jay-Z is worth over $500 million. She has made history and has a future that’s even brighter.

She has left an impression on fans and listeners who know it’s her when she belts out her first note. With her blonde hair and curvy figure her image has broken the mold and has given black women a model to look after.
