It’s been a minute since Beyoncé has been front and center—and with the buzzy new drop of Renaissance, it's natural to wonder about the star's current net worth, and where it's likely now headed.
Like all the reactions in June to the singer's lead-in single and summer anthem, "Break My Soul", the Internet is already going wild over the "Act I" release of Bey's long-awaited seventh studio album. Renaissance has not two, but three parts set to release separately, Bey confirmed herself late-July via an open letter to fans on her official website—and with her accompanying world tour that is speculated to happen within the next year, the singer is likely to see a significant spike in her total earnings.
Bey's recent and upcoming projects follow her previous six knockout albums, wildly profitable fragrance line, and even several acting gigs, all of which has, safe to say—combined with rapper-spouse Jay-Z's own multi-million dollar earnings—amounted to a lot of money for the Queen over the years.
So, asking for a friend: What is Beyoncé's current net worth? Below, see the full breakdown of the singer's total earnings that span the course of her long, long (and very successful) career.
How much did she make with Destiny’s Child?
As you probably remember, Beyoncé got her start as part of Destiny’s Child, the mega-popular group that churned out hits including “Survivor,” “Independent Women,” and “Jumpin’ Jumpin’".
It’s hard to put an exact number on how much Queen Bey made during her time with Destiny’s Child. (She had to split her earnings with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.) But the group won two Grammy awards, with nine nominations in total—so it's likely that she was able to make quite a pretty penny for their work.
In 2003, Beyoncé went solo and never looked back. Since then, she has made $26 million so far in digital sales of her music, per The Recording Industry Association of America—and this is still before all the stats to come on Renaissance.
How much did she make in her acting roles?
Aside from all her music, the singer has also dabbled in acting—appearing in plenty of movies throughout her career including Dreamgirls, Cadillac Records, Obsessed, The Lion King, and Austin Powers.
Her movie salary info has been kept under wraps, but Vulture reported in 2019 that she raked in $60 million for three projects with Netflix, including her own film documentary, Homecoming, which deep-dives into her 2018 Coachella performance.
How much does she make on tour these days?
Beyoncé has made serious coin from all her tours. Her joint On the Run tour with Jay-Z in 2014 grossed $95 million, according to Billboard, with its second installment earning the pair even more at a whopping $250 million. But her 2016 Formation World Tour takes the cake, with a record-breaking $256 million in earnings. And given Bey's unrelenting evolution toward perfection, we have yet higher hopes for Renaissance, which may feasibly even earn the singer more.
What endorsements has she done?
Beyoncé has worked with plenty of big-name brands such as Armani and Tommy Hilfiger throughout her career. More recently, she's collaborated with Pepsi, which gave her $50 million for endorsing their products, per Billboard.
What about her fragrance lines and real estate?
Beyoncé has had quite the share of lucrative investments, including those of her various fragrance products and real estate properties. Her entire fragrance line (Beyoncé Heat and Beyoncé Pulse, to name a few) has generated more than $500 million in revenue over the past decade, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
On top of that, the singer owns several multi-million dollar homes with Jay-Z in New York City, New Orleans, and Los Angeles, according to House Digest. In 2017, the couple bought an East Hampton estate for $26 million, alongside a brand new 30,000 square foot Bel-Air home for $88 million later that same year, per The Los Angeles Times. The California property apparently has four outdoor swimming pools, and—of course—also a private basketball court.
What is her total net worth?
As of 2021, Beyoncé’s overall net worth is $450 million, according to Forbes. Together with Jay-Z, the singer shares a combined net worth of $1.3 billion (with a B!). That is a lot of money to go around. (Celebrity Net Worth lists the two as the fifth richest couple in the world.)
