Jay-Z Finally Earned More Money Than Beyoncé Last Year

Ever since saying "I do" in 2008, Beyoncé has been the spouse with the bigger wallet between herself and Jay-Z, but the tides have turned and Hov is bringing home more money for the first time.

Last year, Jay-Z released his very successful book, Decoded, and although he did not release an album in 2010, his 40/40 club brought in additional revenue, as well as his deal with Live Nation.

Just like her husband, Beyoncé did not release an album in 2010. Most of her cash came through endorsement deals with companies such as L'Oreal and General Mills.

2011 will be an interesting year for the power couple. Jay-Z is set to release a collaborative album with Kanye West, while Beyoncé readies the release of 4. Who will bring in the most money this year?
