Calvin Harris Beats Drake on Highest Paid Celebs List

It’s that time of the year again; Forbes’ newest list of the world’s highest-paid celebrities is finalized and published! Did you make the cut? Probably not, but fortunately for Calvin Harris, he made the 50th spot. Beating out The Chainsmokers (#59), Paul McCartney (#51), and even Drake (#53), Harris is the top electronic music producer in the world.

Floyd Mayweather, George Clooney, and Kylie Jenner control the top 3 spots on the list as one would expect. Forbes formulates their list entirely on the individual’s income from the past 12 months. Harris has earned a spot on Forbes’ Top 100 list for several years in a row now, while successfully growing the electronic music world fan-base.

Last month, we looked into how much Calvin made compared to the average worker. To refresh your mind, Calvin makes an average $48.5 million a year, or $132,000 a day!  Looking back at these numbers, it’s not surprising that Harris earned himself a spot on Forbes’ Highest Paid Celebrities List. In the long run, we can expect Harris and other electronic producers to make their way up the list in the years to come.
