The King of Pop has ranked No. 1 in this year’s list of highest-paid dead celebrities for the 7th consecutive year, despite recent controversy. His streaming jumped 2.1 billion U.S. spins from 1.8 billion a year ago.
Forbes released its 2019 list of the Top-Earning Dead Celebrities on Wednesday, the day before Halloween. And Michael Jackson remains the King of Pop even in death, topping the list for the seventh consecutive year with $60 million in pretax income from Oct. 1, 2018, through the same date this year.
