jay z beyonce billboard power 100

Billboard has unveiled its 2014 Power 100 list and — surprise, surprise — Jay Z and Beyoncé sit comfortably at No. 1. Mr. and Mrs. Carter take the throne thanks to their innovative album releases: Hov’s handsome deal with Samsung to distribute Magna Carta… Holy Grail, and Bey dropping her eponymous fifth LP completely by surprise. The strategies clearly paid off with both albums debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, respectively, and subsequently reaching platinum certification. New rules indeed.
