Jay Z and Beyonce Named No.1 Power Couple in America


Vanity Fair has named Jay Z and Beyonce the No.1 power couple in America, beating the Obama’s to the top position. According to Vanity Fair’s ‘New Establishment’ for 2013, Jay Z and Beyonce, who were ranked number 8 last year, are the most important powers that be in the U.S this year.


Helping them nab the top honor was Jay Z’s new album, Magna Carter Holy Grail, which went double platinum and Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance, plus selling out her world tour and releasing a documentary about her life on HBO.
