Step aside, Beyoncé and Jay Z — there’s a new power couple in town.

Taylor Swift and her beau Calvin Harris are the highest-paid celebrity couple, according to Forbes.

The two earned a combined $146 million in the last year alone, followed by Jay Z and Beyoncé, who brought in a combined $110.5 million in the past year from ticket sales of their co-headlined On the Run tour.

Significant endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Sony and Keds for Taylor Swift, in addition to contracts with Giorgio Armani and Sol Republic for Calvin Harris, helped the couple secure the No. 1 spot on Forbes’ Celebrity 100.

This is the first time the list will be ranking the world’s top earning entertainers by annual income only, and it is set to be released on Monday, June 29.

Only three couples made it on to the list: Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris, Beyoncé and Jay Z, and Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton ($57 million combined)
