She was the lead vocalist of one of the biggest girl-band in the history of the entertainment industry, Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé is called the Queen B for a reason. Born in Houston, Texas, she first appeared in the public eye as a vocalist of an R&B group. She later started her own solo career releasing her debut album Dangerously in Love on 23rd June in the year 2003. That was just the beginning, from where she featured as the top-selling artist in the music industry selling millions of albums copies and sold-out arenas for her live performances. Actress, entrepreneur, musician, and celebrity royalty, Beyoncé is known throughout the world as a multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning artist. So, what is Beyonce net worth now?
With her smoldering looks, flawless makeovers and a charming personality, it wasn’t a surprise for the public that the famous pop-star appeared in Hollywood movies. She starred in several comedy/drama movies including Dream Girls, the Fighting Temptations and Obsessed.
Married to superstar Jay-Z, with whom she shares daughter Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir Carte, Beyonce first catapulted to fame as the lead singer of R&B group Destiny’s Child.
She released her fifth self-titled album, Beyoncé. Things got more surprising for the fans of this duo, when they collectively released a joint album called Everything Is Love when performing on tour last year in 2018.
The singer turned actress was born on 4th September 1981, making her 37 as of now. She took part in many of the local talent shows in her home town Houston, Texas winning them by impressing the audience with her beautiful singing and dancing abilities.
Some Hollywood agent did not formally form the band Destiny Child. It was just Beyonce teaming up with her cousin, Kelly Rowland and two of her classmates from high school which went well and together they created an all-female singing band. Matthew Knowles, her father, served as an early band manager. Over the instance, the group landed a record deal with Columbia Records in 1997 which officially gave them the glimpse of an extraordinary life which they were about to step in. It was quite soon enough that the girl-band got their song “Bills, Bills, Bills” from their second album to top the pop charts.
Being the lead vocalist, Beyonce was more in the spotlight and a more known figure from the band. She, therefore, step on the musical front by coming out as a solo artist. Releasing her first solo album, Dangerously in Love, in 2003 before the group’s breakup in 2004, Beyonce‘s destiny took her in a different direction; Dangerously in Love alone sold millions of copies and netted the singer five Grammy Awards causing her Beyonce net worth to skyrocket.

With on and off relationships, Beyoncé married one of the most influential music moguls Jay-Z in a privately hosted ceremony in New York City. The immediate families were cited on the event with her Destiny’s Child band members as well with a couple of other close friends.
The newlywed couple worked with the same pace in promoting the later albums that she released. She also sang one of Retta James, the R&B legend, a song on the inaugural ball of the now former President Barack Obama and the first lady of her time Michelle Obama. She also performed twice on the famous Super Bowl.
Thanks to selling more than 118 million records as a solo artist, and 60 million with Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé has proved herself as one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
Beyonce‘s five studio albums aren’t the artist’s only sources of income. Beyonce grosses an approximate $2 million in every city she plays and runs the clothing line House of Dereon with her mother. Her own fragrance, spokesperson and model positions for such brands as L’Oréal, Pepsi, and H&M also helps Beyonce net worth.
The singer, songwriter, entrepreneur, and actress has made it on Forbes list of America’s Richest Self-Made 2018 at #53. She has attributed a staggering $355 million net worth to herself according to the Forbes as of April 2019, making her the No. 3 top artist on Forbes highest paid female musician. Jay-Z and Beyonce On the Run II live performance musical tour grossed around $5 million per night having a total of more than $250 million on that tour.
She made around $60 million alone in 2018 from record sales, music tours and appearing as the brand endorser for several famous trade names such as Adidas and Pepsi.
One of the famous music industry corporate Tidal featuring Beyonce’s music raise her stakes when $200 million was reportedly invested in early 2017 making her gain handsome cash.
The combined Jay Z and Beyonce net worth is even higher than we could imagine – the kind of number that would make even Robin Leach stutter.

In 2013 alone, Jay-Z and Beyonce earned a combined $95 million from record sales, touring and merchandise endorsements.
It seems as if American consumers can’t get enough of Queen B, as Beyoncé ranks behind just Oprah, Lady Gaga, and Steven Spielberg.
