That’s Baller: Beyoncé Secures The Bag With $300 Million From Uber

If you are really listening to what some of your favorite artists are rapping or singing about, some of them are giving you more than dope versus over tight beats. Love or hate her, Beyoncé has always provided good messages in her music. From lighthearted, romance filled lyrics to financial advice, we could all stand to listen when The Queen speaks.

In addition to her recent deal with Adidas to relaunch the Ivy Park athletic line and her $60 million three project deal with Netflix, she just earned $300 million from Uber based on a smart financial play in 2015. Instead of accepting a $6 million cash payment to perform for a 2015 corporate Uber event, Beyoncé requested to be paid in equity instead. That one small move just secured a major bag now that the company has gone public on the New York Stock Exchange, marking the biggest tech based IPO in recent history.

Beyoncé is one of many celebrities who are enjoying big paydays from early investments with Uber. The list includes A-Listers like Ashton Kutcher, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jay-Z, and Leonardo Di Caprio.
