Beyonce Knowles Endorsement Deals
While this successful Texan is known for her contributions to the entertainment industry, her savvy business acumen makes her a brand name to be reckoned with. Beyonce signed her first endorsement deal with Pepsi in 2002 which was quickly followed by deals with L’Oreal, American Express, Samsung, Ford and DirectTV. She has launched a number of fragrances over the years, and signed a $20 million, three year deal to develop a signature fragrance for Coty. And don’t forget the fashion line, House of Dereon, which she launched with her mom Tina. She launched her first solo fragrance brand in 2010. She eventually created a total of six fragrance brands which have generated more than $500 million in revenue since 2010. When combined, her brand is the most successful celebrity fragrance of all time.
Beyonce Knowles NetFlix Deal
In 2018 Beyonce signed a $60 million deal with Netflix to provide the streaming service three pieces of content. The first one, a documentary called Homecoming about her 2018 Coachella performance, was released in April 2019. Contrary to a popular online rumor, Beyonce did NOT take a 50% paycut in order to secure the rights to film her Coachella performance. The truth is she received a standard performance fee and essentially told Coachella that they had to let her film for Netflix. And when Beyonce tells Coachella she’s planning to film her shows, they say yes! It’s as simple as that. Beyonce’s best business deal to date has arguably been her marriage to Shawn Carter, better known as Jay-Z, the hip hop artist, producer and multi-millionaire entrepreneur. The couple welcomed their first child Blue Ivy Carter in 2012. On June 13, 2017 Beyonce gave birth to twins, a daughter named Rumi and a son named Sir.
