Calvin Harris has been announced as the world’s highest paid DJ by Forbes magazine.

Tabloid media revealed that the 31-year-old Calvin Harris has topped the magazine’s annual list of highest paid earners, raking an estimated $66 million pre-tax earnings between June 2014-June 2015, reports News24.com.

The ‘Summer’ hit-maker’s staggering wage is far more than the second highest paid DJ, David Guetta, who made 37 million dollars in 2014 from his residencies in Las Vegas and Ibiza.

Harris’ haul comes from the sale of his 2014 album ‘Motion’ which reached the top of US dance charts and his modelling stint for Giorgio Armani for underwear, eye wear and watch lines, as well as his own Las Vegas residency.
