Both stars have had a massive year, with Jay's collaborative album Watch the Throne going platinum and resulting in a world tour and Bey's Mrs Carter World Tour reportedly grossing an average of US$2 million per night.
According to Forbes, the Crazy In Love stars earned US$15 million more than the number two couple on the list, athlete Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who brought home an estimated combined US$80 million over the same period.
Actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt ranked third on the list with estimated joint earnings of US$50 million.
Forbes state that they spoke to "managers, agents, producers and other in-the-know folks" in order to compile their annual list, but didn't take into account "taxes, agent fees or other expenses related to being a celebrity."
