The late ‘ king of pop,’ Micheal Jackson

The prestigious magazine Forbes has published its annual list of the top-earning late celebrities for 2019. Unsurprisingly, the list has been topped by the late ‘ King of Pop’ music Michael Jackson once again.

Forbes report that from October 2018 through October 2019, Jackson is said to have earned $60 million USD in pretax income. This marks the King of Pop’s seventh consecutive year in the top spot. Additionally his proceeds keep flowing from his extensive Mijac Music catalog, a Las Vegas show and a long-term deal with Sony. Along with Jackson, nine musicians made the list of 13, up six from just a year ago. Together these musicians garnered 15.2 billion streaming spins over the past year in the U.S., up 38.5% from the prior 12 months.

According to Forbes, the following are top 13 earning late celebrities of 2019
