Since Jay-Z was recently named the Hip-Hop Cash King, it’s only right that his queen Beyoncé gets some props for her money-making skills as well. Forbes magazine has crowned both Bey-Bey and Hov as music’s highest-paid couple, and the second overall highest-paid celebrity couple in the world.

The R&B/hip-hop duo raked in $72 million between May 2010 and May 2011, with Beyoncé netting $35 million thanks to her Deréon apparel line and her endorsement deals with DirectTV, General Mills, L’Oreal and others. Meanwhile, Jigga’s earnings mostly came from his 10-year $150 million Live Nation deal, his 40/40 restaurant chain and his partial ownerships of the New Jersey Nets basketball team and ad firm Translation.

Beyoncé earned a few more coins this week alone, as she finished out her residency of ‘4 Intimate Nights With Beyonce’ concerts on Friday (Aug. 19) at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. It was a star-studded affair, as A-List celebs like Usher, Kelly Rowland, Lady Gaga, Maxwell, Jennifer Hudson as well as her proud husband, Jay-Z, were in attendance to see the R&B diva rock the Big Apple on the closing night.
