Forbes Highest Paid Electronic DJs of 2013


Esteemed business magazine and infamous list makers Forbes have put together the 13 highest paid electronic music DJs of 2013, estimating their earning from live shows, endorsements, merchandise sales, recorded music sales, and external business ventures. While last year saw Tiesto top the list, bagging $22 million USD, this year sees Scottish producer Calvin Harris more than doubling that figure and netting a total of $46 million thanks to over 100 live shows at places like the Las Vegas megaclub Hakkasan (for which he received up to $200,000 per night). He also receives revenue from his songwriting work for megastars like Rihanna, meaning he ends up taking home even more money than the likes of Jay-Z and Katy Perry. How did he do it? “The rise of dance music has been astronomical in the last three years,” he tells Forbes. “I happened to be in the right place at the right time.”

Ludacris has released a new single off his upcoming eight studio album, ‘Ludaversal.’ ‘Rest Of My Life’ features appearances from Usher and David Guetta (who also produced the song). It is the third single off the forthcoming album. With the success of ‘Jingalin” and ‘Representin” still lingering, ‘Rest Of My Life’ has a new vibe for Ludacris. With David Guetta producing the song, the EDM sound has given a new feel to correlate with the flow of Ludacris’s raps. The high energy dance beat from Guetta mixed with the hip-hop and R&B feel from Ludacris and Usher gives ‘Rest Of My Life’ a very diverse and unique sound that we haven’t got to hear from Ludacris yet. The powerful beat breaks in the song provide a good balance of hip-hop and pop. “I’m on a journey, yeah, I’m on a roll/Sometimes gotta close my eyes, just to open my soul/And tonight is the night, I gotta feeling that I’m about act a fool/So if you go fix some drinks me and Usher are about to break some rules.” Though the rap verses from Ludacris are as solid as they have ever been, Usher provides the melody in the chorus. “If you live for something, you’re not alone, my friend/So fill up your cup and, lift your lighter, and toast to life.” ‘Rest Of My Life’ is a new page in the novel of Ludacris, but with all the talent in this song, there’s no doubt that ‘Rest Of My Life’ is going to be hitting hard over the speakers in clubs for quite some time.
