According to Forbes, music duo Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles earned $122 million between June 2008 and June 2009, landing them atop the publication’s annual Top-Earning Couples list in Hollywood for the second year in a row. The couple married quietly in 2008 and are responsible for everything from music (“Single Ladies” and “Empire State of Mind”) to clothing lines, worldwide tours, and product endorsements (for companies including American Express and Budweiser). Forbes reports that Beyoncé brought in $87 million of the couple’s cash to Jay-Z’s $35 million.

The runners-up? Harrison Ford and girlfriend Calista Flockhart, who earned a combined $69 million during the same time period.
