Jay Z and Beyoncé might not be the top-earning couple on Forbes‘ Highest-Paid Musician of 2015 list, but the power couple certainly made a lot of money this year.

According to Forbes, Hov and Queen Bey ranked number 13 and 14 with $56 million and $54.5 million, respectively. Aside from their lucrative On the Run tour, which grossed more than $100 million in 19 North American shows, Jay Z also enjoyed profits from Roc Nation and Armand de Brignac champagne.

Forbes‘ top ten this year includes Justin Timberlake at number seven with $63.5 million, Diddy at number 8 with $60 million and Lady Gaga at number ten with $59 million. Elsewhere, Dr. Dre  comes in at number 30 with  $33 million, marking a considerable fall from the top spot last year with a Beats-generated $620 million, the largest annual payday of any musician in history according to the magazine.
