Calvin Harris has done it again… made a shit-ton of money.

He has been ranked by Forbes as the highest earning DJ in the world for the second consecutive year.

Curious to know how much he's made? SIXTY-SIX MILLION DOLLARS.

Crazy, since two years ago in 2012, he wasn't even on the top ten richest DJ list.

David Guetta, Avicii, Steve Aoki, and more joined Calvin on the list:

Forbes' DJ Rich List 2014

1. Calvin Harris $66m
2. David Guetta $30m
3. Avicii $28m
4. Tiësto $28m
5. Steve Aoki $23m
6. Afrojack $22m
7. Zedd $21m
8. Kaskade $17m
9. Skrillex $16.5
10. Deadmau5 $16

This figure is compiled from gigs, merch, endorsements, external business ventures, and music sales.

Maybe this is the reason why Calvin could care less about the money missed out from Rita Ora's potential performance of their song "I Will Never Let You Down" at the Teen Choice Awards?
