Beyonce and Jay Z

Hello Friday! Time to catch up on the music news you may have missed this week. Read on!

Jay Z and Beyoncé are still the top earning Hollywood couple

No one, and I mean no one should ever buy a drink when Jay Z and Beyoncé are around. That’s because they have enough to buy the bar and the bartender. Forbes released their list of the highest-earning celebrity couples and for a second year in a row, Beyoncé and Jay Z sit on their thrones at number one racking in an estimated $95 million from June 2012-June 2013. How did they do it you ask? Well, Beyoncé’s “Mrs. Carter” world tour sure helped. Mrs. “Grown Woman” herself made $2 million a show! Oh, and Jay Z was no lazy bum you know. His “Watch the Throne” album and world tour with fellow rapper Kanye West helped leave him and his wife at number one of Forbes’ list. And they didn’t even count the sales of his recent release “Magna Carta…Holy Grail.” The album was released in July making it not eligible to count toward their earnings. They are a power couple for sure.

Solange Knowles premiere’s “Lovers In The Parking Lot” video

Man, Solange is so cool! I’m starting to believe that Knowles gene is too perfect for interpretation. The singer released the video for her song “Lovers In The Parking Lot” which appears on her EP "True" and it was everything. With cameos from Mannie Fresh and Bun B (who partakes in a little choreography with Solange) this video is all about creativity on a low budget. The scenes look like they were shot in a flea market-mall kind of setting and Solange wows in light up laces, metallic hot pink shorts, and solo dance moves that were an accessory in and of itself. Did I mention that she has a game of Mortal Kombat II playing in the background of one of her scenes? Oh I didn’t, forgive me please. My inner 90’s girl definitely approves. Great visuals for an even better song.
