BEYONCÉ HAS claimed a spot on this year’s list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women with an estimated net worth of $265 million.
The 34-year-old ranks No. 56, behind moguls such as Oprah Winfrey, on Forbes’ prestigious list, published later this month.
Beyoncé has already pulled in more than $500 million in gross earnings as a solo artist—and now she and husband Jay Z (net worth: $610 million) are chugging toward the billion-dollar mark.
That could come sooner than later, thanks to income from joint tours, multimillion-dollar endorsement deals and stakes in companies like Tidal, the streaming service she and her husband co-own with Self Made Women listmate Madonna and others.
Ever the businesswoman, Beyoncé launched her latest album, Lemonade, exclusively on Tidal in April ahead of a wider release; the record became her sixth to debut at No. 1 on the charts.
