Sept. 19 (UPI) -- Jay Z and Beyoncé are pretty much the king and queen of popular music, so it should come as no surprise that Mr. and Mrs. Carter top this year's list of highest-earning celebrity couples.

Beyoncé, who is in the middle of her "Mrs. Carter World Tour" brings in an average $2 million a show, while Jay Z's "Magna Carta... Holy Grail" has gone double platinum since its release July 4.

On top of their musical ventures, Jay Z recently sold his stakes in the Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets to start a sports management agency, while Beyoncé has lines of clothing and perfume.

All told, Forbes estimated the couple's estimated net worth was a whopping $95 million -- more than $15 million more than the next-highest-earning couple, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie come in a distant third, earning $50 million.

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis raked in $35 million, while Kanye West and Kim Kardashian made $30 million together.
