Could their lives get any more fabulous?

Forbes just reported that Beyoncé and Jay-Z are officially, together, worth over a billion dollars!

So first, congratulations to Blue Ivy and her two upcoming siblings for winning the lottery as far as parents go. Those children will never have to worry about a damn thing, except what color to paint each of their private jets.

Of course, Jay and Bey didn’t luck into their fortunes. Beyoncé credits her success to the fact that, “[she’s] never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry.” Which definitely explains her reported net worth of $350 million.

Jay, on the other hand, is known for being quite the businessman these days, and his investment in Tidal has paid serious dividends – he paid $56 million for the company just two years ago, and today it’s valued at $600 million. That growth, along with his other contracts and business holdings, means his net worth is well over $800 million.

So if you do the math, the Carter-Knowles clan is now worth over $1.16 billion. As Kendrick Lamar would say, “Damn.”

And when you’re the richest couple in hip-hop, you get to live a pretty luxurious lifestyle. Check out the slideshow above to see the most iconic pics of Jay & Bey living the highlife!

OK, fine, everyone goes to the Grand Canyon. But they probably flew there in a private jet while eating caviar.
