About Beyonce

American R&B recording artist, actress and fashion designer, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles, has an estimated net worth of $265 million in June 2016, according to Forbes. Knowles is probably one of the most popular American R&B recording artists in her generation. This siren-voiced performer began her career as part of the Destiny’s Child. After going solo in 2001, Beyonce earned a great deal of popularity which earned her with staggering record sales, movie roles and Grammy Awards. Her romance with rapper/CEO Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter made her a high profile performer in the entertainment world.

Aside from earnings in the musical industry,  Knowles certainly understands the importance of diversifying her portfolio. She invests in Dereon Clothing line and other properties. She has acquired endorsement deals from General Mills, L’Oreal DirecTV etc. She said: “I have a lot of property. I’ve invested my money and I don’t have to make any more, because I’m set. I’m now able really to be free and just do things that make me happy.” In addition from handling her music career and businesses, Beyonce took the time to build the Survivors Foundation which is aimed to help the survivors of Hurricane Katrina in Houston.

In 2008, the Houston-born diva’s was hailed second by the Forbes magazine as one of the most popular and highest under thirty. She also topped in the list of budding moguls or Hollywood’s top earning celebrities who are under 35. According to Forbes, she is the highest paid female artist and second most influential and powerful celebrity. On Forbes’ 2011 Celebrity 100, she ranked 29 which is justified because she didn’t released an album or hold a tour in the past year (2010-2011).

Beyoncé joined her rapper husband Jay-Z onstage to perform together at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California. Throughout her 17-year career, she has sold more than 75 million records as a solo artist, and another 60 million records with the Destiny’s Child.  She was named by TIME magazine as among the most influential people in the world in 2013 and 2014.

In December 2013, she released her fifth studio album eponymously titled Beyonce. The album was released exclusively on iTunes at first, with no marketing nor announcement for it and came as a surprise to the record industry. News of the album’s release made Beyonce the top trending term on twitter that week. As of the 4th week of release, she had sold more than 1.43 Million Units of the Album.
