By HHL Editors

Calvin Harris is more than just Mr. Taylor Swift. The 31-year old Scot is the highest paid DJ in the world and it isn't even close.

According to Forbes, Harris will pull in $66 million in 2015 for spinning records (and also endorsing brands such as Giorgio Armani). That almost doubles French DJ vet David Guetta, who pulled in $37 million to place second on the financial mag's list.
