With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have once again topped this year’s list of Forbes‘ “Top Earning Celebrity Couples”.

According to the magazine, the Rocawear and Deréon founders earned a combined $122 million in 2009, down from $162 million in 2008 (guess the recession affected everyone).

Beyoncé truly backed up her hit “Upgrade U” this past year, making $87 million (thanks to endorsement deals, world tour, music, fashion line and more) compared to Jay’s $35 million.

Here’s the complete list:
