Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris Dethrone Beyoncé, Jay Z to Become World’s Highest-Paid Power Couple

The pair amassed $146 million last year compared to the Carters’ shared annual income of $110.5 million

Look out, Beyoncé and Jay Z. There’s a new musical power couple in town.

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are dethroning the Carters as Forbes’ highest-earning celebrity couple on the Celebrity 100 list of 2014.

Together, the fresh pairing amassed $146 million last year, beating out Queen Bey and her hubby’s shared annual income of $110.5 million.

The pop singer and the Scottish DJ both made the Celeb 100’s top 20, according to Forbes.

Swift’s album “1989” was the best-selling album of 2014 and Harris is the highest paid DJ in the world. The two also boast impressive endorsement deals with big businesses. Swift works with Diet Coke, Sony and Keds, while her boyfriend has Giorgio Armani and Sol Republic headphones.

Beyoncé and Jay Z owe their combined income to their joint On the Run tour, along with his multiple entertainment and alcohol business ventures and her endorsement deals with Pepsi and H&M.

Forbes ranked the world’s top-paid entertainers by their annual income. Only one other couple, country singers Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, qualify with their combined $57 million.

During 2014, Shelton served as a judge on “The Voice” and played more than 40 gigs, and Lambert won multiple Academy of Country Music Awards.

The Celebrity 100 list will be posted on Monday, June 29.
