Calvin Harris has been on top of the DJ world, financially speaking, since 2012 as the world’s highest paid DJ, but move over sir there is a new sheriff in town!!

Two acts have jumped past Mr. Harris on Forbes’ annual list, The Chainsmokers and Marshmello.

The Chainsmokers take the top spot for the first time, racking in a comfortable $46 million - they have certainly come a long way since meeting back in 2012!! 

It’s worth noting, they are a duo so they’re splitting the pie and taking that into consideration, that makes Marshmello, who’s #2 on the list, the highest paid indivdual earning $40 million.

Calvin probably won’t have to worry about paying his bills after falling to #3, as his annual take is still a healthy $38.5 million.

See who else made the list below:

  1. The Chainsmokers ($46 million)
  2. Marshmello ($40 million)
  3. Calvin Harris ($38.5 million)
  4. Steve Aoki ($30 million
  5. Diplo ($25 million)
  6. Tiësto ($24 million)
