Beyonce and Jay Z have once again proven why they are a mega power couple.

According to the Forbes list of highest paid celebrities in the world, Queen B and Mr Carter, ranked the highest paid celebrity couple of 2016.

Beyonce ranked number 34 and Jay Z at number 36, separately.

The Pretty hurts singer made an astounding $54 million, which is R774 million rand, while Jay Z came close to his wife with $53.5 million, which is just under R760 million.

The main source of the couple’s income, came from Bey’s album, Lemonade, which could only be streamed on TIDAL, Jay Z’s music service.
