Calvin Harris may have lost onetime girlfriend Taylor Swift in 2016, but at least his finances remain strong. For the fourth consecutive year, the Scottish beat-maker has topped Forbes‘ annaul Electronic Cash Kings ranking of the world’s highest-paid DJs. The amount he pulled in: a cool $63 million.

Forbes points out that Harris earns $400,000 per Vegas gig, and despite the whopping pile of cash he raked in overall, it’s actually $3 million less than the previous year. No matter — he still remains on top, and he’s currently enjoying the second biggest stateside hit of his career (after “We Found Love”) with his latest Rihanna pair-up, “This Is What You Came For.”

Below, catch the full list of Forbes‘ kings of cash in the world of electronic music.
