Even in Death, Michael Jackson Earns More than Jay Z and Beyonce

According to the video report featured recently on US TV channel CBS (above), Michael Jackson’s estate has generated over £400m in the four years since his death, more than any other living artists.

The report, which includes an interview with John Branca, a co-executor of the singer’s will, reveals that Jackson has sold over 50m albums; become the biggest-selling artist on iTunes, and accumulated over 60m Facebook friends since his death in 2009.

When he died, Jackson owed more than £250m and was criticised for his lavish spending habits. However, just four years later all his debts have been cleared and the singer is widely recognised as the world’s most lucrative music brand.
