Just a few years ago Calvin Harris was bagging groceries in Scotland and now he’s the world’s highest paid DJ, earning $46 million in the past year.
Not to mention getting to hang with the likes of Rihanna, Florence Welch and Ellie Goulding to name a few.
Harris leads an impressive list of musicians collecting six-figure nightly checks for performing at nightspots from Las Vegas to Ibiza and for other business ventures once reserved only for rock, rap and pop royalty. His string of eight Top 10 UK hits from his 18 Months LP probably didn't hurt either. Harris takes over the top slot from Tiesto who ruled Forbes list last year. Check out the rest of the Top 12 below which includes a Jersey Shore alum.
