There’s a reason why Jay-Z and Beyonce have more money and power than any other music artists over the last 15 years or so.

Their business smarts are as sharp as knives.

The other day, news came out that Jay-Z signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. The agreement gives Hov control over the copyrights of his albums since 2008 and, at the end of 2013, music going back to 2004.

A day after that deal became news, a deal involving Jay’s wife, Beyonce, became public.

Bey has signed her own publishing deal with Warner.

“Beyoncé has signed a global publishing agreement with Warner/Chappell Music, Billboard has learned exclusively. Effective immediately, Warner/Chappell — headed by chairman/CEO Cameron Strang — will administer the 17-time Grammy winner’s future songwriting, including her anticipated next album.”

We think Jay put it best: “I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man.
