The ride-sharing service, Uber recently went public. Meaning it is available for anyone to buy stock on the New York Stock Exchange. For investors, who were able to buy early, they’re sure to reap the benefits.

One of those investors is Beyoncé. According to Inside Edition, Beyoncé once performed at an Uber private party and instead of earning her usual estimated $6 million fee, she was given a small percentage of the company, which today could be worth $ 300 million.

More Uber money is flowing into the Carter household, Jay-Z has also been an early investor in the company since 2011.

In recent years, both have used their music to stress the importance of investment.
