Michael Jackson's legacy continues with £132m deal

Wednesday March 17, 2010

Nine months after his untimely death, Michael Jackson has secured the biggest record deal in history.

The singer's estate has signed a £132 million, seven-year contract with Sony Music for ten projects, including an album of never-before-heard songs, a video game and the re-release of his hugely successful album Off The Wall.

The deal may also include a Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas based on the king of pop's hits.

Since he passed away last June, 31,000,000 of his albums have been sold, earning more than £165 million.

This Is It, a feature film of rehearsal footage from his London concert, has also taken £160million at the box office.
