We Finally Know How Much Money The Chainsmokers Made In The Past Year

Forbes just released this year’s list Highest-Paid celebrities, which “ranks the top-earning front--camera entertainers on the planet by pretax income from June 1, 2016 through June 1, 2017.”

Diddy topped the list, at $130 million, thanks in large part to his equity in Sean John clothing as well as his continued partnership with Ciroc. You can expect a large amount musicians on the list this year, in addition to your “typical” silver screen celebrities and even some authors (J.K. Rowling comes in at #3).

Included on this year’s list are The Chainsmokers at #65 with $38 million. Their payday comes from a heavy touring schedule as well as multiple multi-platinum singles, such as “Closer” and “Don’t Let Me Down.”

The world’s 100 highest-paid celebrities pulled in $5.15 billion in total — more than the combined GDP Belize, Liberia and Gambia. See the full list .
