Who says that the decadent life of the famous musician has to be endless groupies and empty relationships that do not last longer than the night of the first initial meeting? These three power couples not only tied the knot, but they also built a combined net worth that is now even more astonishing than before they said their vows to each other. The loving unions of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz as well as Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon all created offspring to inherit their extraordinary wealth right along with top-notch musical abilities.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
With a collective net worth of $775 million in 2012, the super singer Beyoncé and Jay-Z, the CEO of hip-hop, are the wealthiest married musicians – by far. Jay-Z not only records his own hit music, but he also has a successful recording label/management company called Roc Nation. With investments that include the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets basketball team and the 40/40 Club sports bar franchise and endorsements with Hewlett Packard, Chevy, Budweiser, and Armadale Vodka – Jay-Z is a big breadwinner with $475 million. Jay-Z’s gorgeous and talented wife Beyoncé is certainly no slouch herself with a whopping $300 net worth from recording and performing, right along with lucrative deals with L’Oreal, Pepsi, Samsung, Ford, DirectTV and American Express.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
This dynamic married duo has an amazing net worth of $515 million to save for a rainy day. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may have a 10-year age difference between them, but these musical mavericks surely have big bank accounts in common. Singing superstar Mariah Carey leads the way with a personal net worth of $500 million, looking to become a billionaire in her later years thanks to her ability to sell over 200 million albums worldwide and her acting career. Nick Cannon brings a respectable $15 million to the table, with plenty of growth potential with his music career, comedy, TV and film pursuits.
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz
When you have a globally respected singer such as Alicia Keys and an internationally revered record producer like Swizz Beatz married to each other, money will be the least of their worries with a total net worth of $125 million. This powerful musical marriage consists of partners that truly meet each other half way with Swizz Beatz earning $65 from music, custom design commissions and revitalizing the Reebok shoe brand. His beautiful wife Alicia Keys has sung, performed, played the piano and acted her way into a similar net worth of $60 million.
