Forbes just dropped a list of the highest paid celebrities of 2018, and though only one DJ made the top 50, their relation to others on the list may shock you. Calvin Harris is the Electronic artist in question, claiming the #50 spot for making $48 million. Riding out the success of his fifth studio album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 and staying well booked in Las Vegas are key factors.
The second richest artist would be the Chainsmokers, tailing him at #59. Though Harris is $200 million below the number one spot, he does place above Drake ($47 Million) and Metallica ($46 Million). He also places right above Paul McCartney and Russell Westbrook, who are tied for 51 at $47.5 Million. Lady Gaga is the celebrity right above him at $50 million. Hip-Hop superstar Kendrick Lamar also joins the list with a whopping $58 Million after the huge success of his album DAMN. that dominated the charts.
Topping the list are Floyd Mayweather, George Clooney, and “Self-Made” millionaire Kylie Jenner…in a way, we’re kind of happy Harris isn’t too high on this list.
