Baby, they’re the new romantics – and they’re now Hollywood’s highest-paid power couple!

That’s right: Taylor Swift and new beau Calvin Harris are collectively worth more than Beyoncé and Jay Z, reports Forbes.

The business magazine will release its annual Celebrity 100 list Monday, and because of a new rule – this year, they only rank the top entertainers by annual income – the younger pair will dethrone Jay and Queen Bey.

Per Forbes, Swift and Harris both make the Top 20 this year, raking in a combined $146 million. In addition to her smash 1989 album and world tour, the “Bad Blood” singer and savvy businesswoman‘s ever-expanding empire includes endorsement deals with Keds, Diet Coke and Sony. Meanwhile, Scottish producer Harris enjoyed a stint as the face of Emporio Armani, in addition to finding success with his 2014 album Motion and signing a three-year nightclub residency deal in Las Vegas.

As for the Carter-Knowles clan?

Jay and Bey raked in a modest $110.5 in Forbes’ scoring period. The pair earned a pretty penny from their co-headlining On the Run tour. Beyoncé had endorsements with Pepsi and H&M, while Jay Z’s still a business, man. (In addition to his company, Roc Nation, he’s an investor in upscale wine and spirits.

The only other power couple earning enough to earn the title? Country stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, with $57 million.
