Beyonce at the Super Bowl 2016

Queen B won't have to worry for a while...

Beyoncé isn’t called Queen B for nothing. After starting out with Destiny’s Child way back in 1990 (YES, WE KNOW), Bey has risen to the top and is now one of the world’s most successful performing artists, and she’s got the bank balance to prove it.

There’s no doubt about it, Beyoncé makes a LOT of money – we’re talking a seven-figure salary every single year, and a money-making empire that just keeps on growing, plus a equally profitable husband. So how much does Beyoncé really earn?

According to Forbes, Beyoncé’s net worth is in the region of $54.5 million, which works out as £37.4 million. And that’s without a tour or secretly released video album to promote (Drunk In Love, we’ll never forget you).

Beyoncé can almost definitely expect a boost to her bank balance in 2016, after that Formation video drop. First comes the track, then comes the world tour, the Formation merchandise and (we’re hoping) a new album… Beyoncé’s yearly earnings are about to look pretty healthy. Not quite as healthy as Katy Perry's net worth though...

Beyoncé currently clocks in at #29 on the Forbes Celebrity Earnings List for 2015, just one spot behind husband Jay Z, who pulled in $56 million in 2015 (that’s £38 million in pounds).

Together? Bey and Jay make $110.5million (£79 million), putting them second in the list of 2015’s highest earning couples. Talk about hip-hop royalty. They might have topped the list since 2013, but they’ve been dethroned by a newer A-list union – Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift, who got together in May 2015, earned $146 million combined last year.

Neither Beyoncé or Jay Z can match the Kardashians when it comes to making money quite yet – Kim is said to be worth £41 million, with Caitlyn clocking in at £65 million. See the full Kardashian net worth here. Kanye West net worth? Well that's a whole other matter entirely. But to be honest, Donald Trump's net worth eclipses them all...    

And if you need a refresher on all the bombshells Beyoncé dropped at the Beyoncé Bowl, sorry, Super Bowl 2016, look no further.
