Beyonce and Jay Z have failed to make the cut for Billboard magazine's Power 100 list just a year after they were named the biggest players in the music industry.

The singer and her rapper husband topped the 2014 poll, with editors praising their wide-ranging influence throughout the industry and their commercial success, but they failed to scrape into the top 100 in 2015.

This year's (15) poll was topped by Universal Music Group chief Lucian Grainge, followed by Live Nation boss Michael Rapino at two and music manager Irving Azoff in third.
