This week Forbes unveiled its list of the Top Earning Celebrities Under 30. Making his debut on the list, in the number four spot nonetheless, is Scottish singer/producer/songwriter Calvin Harris, with Forbes estimating his net-worth at $46 Million.

Aside from writing and producing some of today’s hottest records, Calvin Harris has been touring heavily and recently signed a lucrative deal with MGM Grand’s Hakkasan and the Wet Republic pool.

“In February, he signed on to play more than 70 shows over a two-year period in Las Vegas, ” Forbes writes.

“While the majority of his money comes from performing, he also earns from writing and producing songs like Rihanna’s Grammy-winning We Found Love. Harris played more than 150 shows in the 12 months since June 1, 2012.”

Calvin, who earlier this year released his critically acclaimed third album, 18 Months, is not looking to limit himself to commercial hit-making, telling Music week:

“I’m doing more dance music that probably won’t get into the charts.

“I just want to make good music; this award is like drawing a line under the past two years where I’ve just been intensely fucking working to try and make singles and hit records.”

If you haven’t done so already, check out Harris’s 18 Months below.
