Scarsdale’s newest celebrities Jay-Z and Beyonce made it to the top of the list for Forbes Magazines richest celebrity couples.

The musical lovebirds racked up $162 million last year. And unlike other couples that made the list, the two’s income is fairly even.

Jay-Z collected over $82 million for a lucrative touring deal with Live Nation and his platinum selling album American Gangster.

Beyonce landed over $80 million thanks to a slew of movie roles, endorsements and sold out concert tour.

The two’s assets dwarfed the competition on the list. In second place, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett racked up $80 million last year — most of which came from the $80 million Will Smith got from his movie roles.
