Afrojack keeps a tight grip on his MVP status

Afrojack remains firmly planted on the shortlist of top-earning DJs year in and year out.

Afrojack has become quite the emblem of the globe-trotting, club-conquering, big life-living DJ and dance-music producer. He’s unapologetic about enjoying the spoils of his electronic endeavors, even if the press continues to jump every time he buys a new car. (Granted, his most recent acquisition, the Rosso Bia Lamborghini Aventador SV, is reportedly the first of its kind to be delivered to the Netherlands.)

His name might conjure images of waking up among a bevy of beauties and sucking down a Blowfish hangover-cure drink, as he does in the bouncy video for last season’s hit “SummerThing!”. But as glamorous as the lifestyle may be, the still-only-28-year-old Afrojack is about his business, and his business is music. Before “SummerThing!” there was “Hey Mama,” Afro’s 2015 all-star team-up with David Guetta and Nicki Minaj, an inescapable pop crossover.

With a spot on virtually every major EDM fest around the globe, a fresh residency at Omnia and a constant stream of new music—he just teamed with fellow Dutchman Hardwell for “Hollywood”—it’s no wonder why Afrojack remains firmly planted on the shortlist of top-earning DJs year in and year out. Afrojack, January 29, February 16 & 19, Omnia at Caesars Palace.
