Michael Jackson Tops Prince & David Bowie On Music’s “Top Posthumous Earners” List

Jackson Earned Nearly 20x’s More Than Nearest “Competitor” On Tally


The King of Pop continues his reign even beyond the grave.

Ranking revenue generation for the 12 months preceding October 1, the tally sees Jackson make over 20x’s that of his nearest competitor on the list – ‘Peanuts’ creator Charles Schulz (who earned $48 million over the timeframe).

‘Work’ duo Rihanna and Drake have put in some major work in 2016 to overcome the historic chart records of King of Pop Michael Jackson.

Once thought insurmountable, the rumored on again/off again couple – through their respective projects ‘Anti’ and ‘Views’ – are jointly leaving the pop icon’s Billboard stats in their review.

Indeed, after Rih surpassed the singer’s historic 13 #1’s on the Billboard Hot 100 with her last run atop the tally, now Drizzy – with his monster hit ‘One Dance’ (7 consecutive weeks at #1, 8 overall) – is one week shy of laying claim to one of Jackson’s most unimaginable records.

Tavis Smiley, renown television host and political/social commentator, is extending his talents once again to the pen via ‘Before You Judge Me’ – an in depth look at the tragic last days of King of Pop Michael Jackson.

Now, while blazing the promo trail in support of the project, Smiley dishes with ExtraTV on his intention to turn the book into a TV series and even reflects on MJ’s reported longtime feud with fellow pop icon Prince.  Details inside:

Despite being galaxies away from their Billboard 200 stats, Rihanna continues to wreck the Hot 100 records of many-a-legend.  Already leaving records set by Madonna, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, and Janet Jackson in her rearview (as recently as last week), the diva – who has already “technically” surpassed Michael Jackson‘s #1s streak on the singles chart – now shares his top 10 record.

Thanks to ‘Needed Me,’ the latest gem lifted from her latest opus, ‘Anti,’ Ri – at just 28 years old – can now boast an amassment of top 10s that puts her in 3rd place on the “all time” list.

That’s right. There are only 2 other artists in history who have scored more top 10s on the Hot 100 than her.  Get the details below:
