Calvin Harris reportedly raked in $1 million (R11 million) to play a private party at the weekend.

The Scottish DJ was hired to keep the crowd going at an event for Bacardi on Palomino Island, off the coast of Puerto Rico, Sunday night.

And sources say he made seven figures to work the bash, where stars including Ellie Goulding and Kendrick Lamar also took the stage, according to the New York Post.

Calvin’s spokesperson had not commented on the report at press time.

The DJ and record producer was crowned one of the most successful DJs last year, according to Forbes magazine.

The outlet reported in August of last year Calvin's earnings had already amounted to a staggering $46 million, taking DJ Tiësto down from the top spot of highest paid DJs.

UK newspaper The Sun subsequently reported in January his company CH Touring made more than $2.3 million "in 2013 alone".

Calvin's CH Music company reportedly raked in another $5.8 million, sealing his position as one of the world's most successful DJs, according to the outlet.

Calvin catapulted to the top of the music charts with his debut album, I Created Disco, in 2007.

The 30-year-old has gone on to have major success with tracks like Blame, Let's Go and Sweet Nothing.
