Maybe Beyonce does run the world after all. The singer has been crowned by Forbes as one of the most powerful black women in the US, nabbing the honor of being the only musician on the list.
Alongside Oprah Winfrey, BET CEO Debra Lee, Tyra Banks and several others, Beyonce has been recognised for her influence in both the media and American culture. Her current net worth is an estimated $300 million after earning $35 million from early 2010 to early 2011.
Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, was recently heralded as the highest earning Hip-Hop act after garnering over $37 million from 2010 to 2011. His estimated net worth is projected to be $450 million.
