Forbes has unveiled its annual list of the world’s 100 top earning stars and several of our favorite music makers made the cut with a few cracking the Top 10.
U2, Coldplay and Ed Sheeran landed in spots 6, 7 and 9 respectively, all pulling in more than $100 million in 2017.
It should be noted Ed was the only solo artist in the Top 10, so in essence he is the top earning musician.
Calvin Harris was the world’s top earning DJ at No. 50, raking in $48 million, followed by The Chainsmokers at #59 with $45 million.
The top earner overall was boxer Floyd Mayweather with $285 million followed by George Clooney at No. 2, who pulled in just under a quarter billion thanks to the sale of his Casamigos Tequila brand.
