Calvin Harris features in Forbes' Highest-Paid Celebrities list as the richest dance music artist in the world, raking in more than the likes of Paul McCartney and Jennifer Lopez. 

The producer and spinner released his fifth album, 'Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1', last summer, and is reportedly worth $48million, placing him at number 50 in the earnings charts, with his residency at Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas, netting him £1million per show between now and 2020

Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather topped the lot, with George Clooney, Kylie Jenner, Judge Judy Sheindlin and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson rounding out the top five. The closest electronic acts to Harris, who topped the Forbes list of highest paid DJs in 2016 and 2017 and was immortalised in wax at Madame Tussaud's in New York earlier this year, are Drake (53) and The Chainsmokers (59). U2 are the biggest earners in music overall.
