What Is Beyonce’s Net Worth?

After the news that Beyonce and Jay-Z are selling their mysterious New Orleans castle estate, fans are curious about how much she's worth.

Beyonce is one of the world's best-selling artists and has sold more than 118 million records worldwide. In 2020, she was listed on Time magazine's list of 100 women who defined the last century and in 2021, Forbes listed her as one of America's richest self-made women.

Beyonce's singing career started in the girl band Destiny's Child alongside Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams in the 1990s.

In 2003, Beyonce's first solo album Dangerously In Love dropped. Just before this, in October 2002, Bey featured in Jay-Z's single '03 Bonnie & Clyde'.


What is Beyonce's net worth in 2021?

Beyonce is reportedly worth a staggering $440 million in 2021 - a figure reflective of one of the world's best-selling artists.

As mentioned, Beyonce has sold more than 118 million records worldwide and she's also appeared in several blockbuster movies, including Dreamgirls, The Pink Panther and The Lion King.

Bey's husband, Jay-Z was officially declared a billionaire in 2018.

Born Beyonce Giselle Knowles, she came from humble beginnings. She was born to Celestine Knowles, a hairdresser and salon owner, and Matthew Knowles, a salesman who would later become her manager.


Bey's singing career started at a young age. When she was eight-years-old, she and childhood friend Kelly Rowland auditioned to be part of an all-girl's group in a Houston talent show. It was during this audition that they met LaTavia Robertson and the three of them would form, Girl's Tyme, which would become Destiny's Child.

Bey's father gave up his job to manage the band, which put a significant financial strain on the family and contributed towards Beyonce's parents splitting up. In 1996, the band became known as Destiny's Child and the following year, they recorded the hit soundtrack for Men In Black, 'Killing Time.'

Eventually, LaTavia and another band member, LeToya Luckett, became unhappy with how Matthew Knowles was managing the band, so they left and were replaced by Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin.

In late 2001, the band members announced their plans to pursue solo careers.


How many children does Beyonce have?

Beyonce has three children, all with her husband, Jay-Z.

Blue Ivy Carter was born on 7th January 2012 in New York. In March 2021, Blue Ivy became the youngest person ever to win a Grammy. But with both of her parents being incredibly successful musicians, there's no surprises there.

In 2017, Bey announced she was expecting twins and the internet blew up after she posted the news on Instagram.


Sir and Rumi Carter were born in California on 13th July 2017.

Are Beyonce and Jay-Z still together?

Beyonce and Jay-Z started dating shortly after they collaborated on the 2002 single '03 Bonnie and Clyde' and they married in 2008.
