At the time of his death last June, Michael Jackson was reportedly deeply in debt and had agreed to sign on for an unprecedented 50-date run at the O2 arena in London, as a means of turning his financial fortunes around.

But thanks to a flurry of merchandising deals and a flood of nostalgia-fueled 音乐 sales, his estate has generated nearly $1 billion in the past year,Billboard reports via Reuters.

Billboard broke down the 来源 of that windfall, determining that nearly half of it came from the robust 音乐 sales following the singer's shock death on June 25, 2009. Jackson has sold 9 million albums in the U.S. and 24 million around the globe since his death, along with around 800,000 copies of albums 由 the Jackson 5 and the Jacksons. Assuming a worldwide retail sales price of $11.62 per unit, the magazine estimated that the Jackson catalog brought in about $383 million in sales.

Add in 12.9 million track downloads in the U.S. over the past year, along with 26.5 million in international downloads, and 你 have another $34 million. Then there's about 1.5 million in ringtone sales in America, another 3 million globally for another $5 million, as well as $2 million from digital performance royalties from 音乐 subscription services and $4.5 million from global digital performances for a 音乐 total of $429 million.

The 秒 biggest 来源 of revenue was TV and movie projects, led 由 the "Michael Jackson: This Is It" documentary about the singer's final rehearsals for his planned 伦敦 shows. Sony Pictures paid $60 million for the rights to the film, which earned $72 million at the box office to become the highest-grossing 音乐会 film ever. It earned an additional $188 million overseas, while the DVD of the film raked in $43 million in the U.S., as well as $24 million in rental income. It earned $18 million just in 日本 on the first 日 of release and another $7 million in Blu-Ray sales.

Billboard also speculated that the sales of the TV rights to "This Is It" to Viacom (the parent company of MTV) may have generated an additional $15 million, and licensing fees for nontheatrical performances (airplanes, cruise ships, hotels) could bring in around $24 million.

One of Jackson's traditional cash cows, his 音乐 publishing rights, was another lucrative 来源 of income, taking in nearly $130 million. The singer's Mijac publishing company — with an estimated value of $75 million in 2005 — has a current value of around $150 million, generating around $25 million a 年 in revenue, with that number possibly doubling to $50 million in the past year. Jackson's half ownership of the lucrative Sony/ATV catalog could be worth as much as an additional $80 million a year.

The executors of Jackson's estate have cut a series of deals over the past year, resulting in around $35 million in additional revenue. Because many 粉丝 declined to return their tickets to the 伦敦 This Is It shows, preferring to retain them as keepsakes, those tickets were worth $6.5 million, along with around $5 million in 音乐会 merchandise sales; a 秒 deal with merchandise maker Bravado cut in August reportedly included a $10 million advance. A Jackson memorabilia exhibit in 日本 has earned $3.5 million. And additional licensing royalties and retail sales could have rolled up $10 million 或者 更多 for the estate.

It is not known how much game-maker Ubisoft paid to license Jackson's image for an upcoming video game 或者 what potential revenues could be from a pair of upcoming Jackson-themed Cirque du Soleil shows.

Finally, even in death Jackson has one of the most lucrative recording contracts around. Sony 音乐 Entertainment cut a deal in March with the estate to release 10 Jackson albums through 2017. From a collection of previously unreleased Jackson songs due in November to reissues of such landmark albums as 1979's solo debut, Off the Wall, the estate is guaranteed between $200 and $250 million for the Sony pact. Though none of the albums have been released yet, if just one of the contract's eight years comes off as planned, it could add $31 million to the estate's coffers.

Celebrate Michael Jackson's legacy all week long as 音乐电视 News looks back at his life, his 音乐 and the death that shook the world one 年 ago.

Every moment takes me to

Darlin', let me hold you
Warm 你 in my arms and melt

Now I'm just wondering why 你 think
That 你 can get to me with anything
Seems like you'd know 由 now
When and how I get down
And with all that I've been through, I'm still around
Don't 你 ever make no mistake
Baby I've got what it takes
And there's no way you'll ever get to me
Why can't 你 see that you'll never ever hurt me
'Cause I won't let it be, see I'm too much for 你 baby

Chorus
You can't believe it, 你 can't conceive it
And 你 can't touch me, 'cause I'm untouchable
And I know 你 hate it, and 你 can't take it
You'll never break me, 'cause I'm unbreakable

Now 你 can't stop me...

un comes up on this new mornin
Shiftin shadows, a songbird sings
And if these words could keep 你 happy
Id do anything

And if 你 feel alone, Ill be your shoulder
With a tender touch, 你 know so well
Somebody once said, its the soul that matters
Baby who can really tell, when 2 hearts belong so well

Maybe the walls will tumble
And the sun may refuse to shine
But when I say, I 爱情 你
Baby 你 gotta know
Thats for all time
Baby 你 gotta know
Thats for all time

Moon shines down on this good evening
One warm 吻乐队(Kiss) in the cold night air
For this good 爱情 undeceiving
Id go anywhere
Just as long...

This time around
I'll never get bit
Though 你 really wanna fix me
This time around
you're making me sick
Though 你 really wanna get me

Somebody's out
Somebody's out to get me
They really wanna fix me, hit me
But this time around
I'm taking no shit
Though 你 really
wanna get me
You really wanna get me

He really thought
he really had a hold on me
He really thought he really had
They thought they really had control of me
He really thought he really had Control of me
He really thought he really had
They thought they really could control me

This time around
I'll never get bit
Though 你 really...

Looking in my mirror
Took me 由 surprise
I can't help but see you
Running often through my mind

Helpless like a baby
Sensual disguise

I can't help but 爱情 you
It gets better all the time

I can't help it if I wanted to
I wouldn't help it even if I could
I can't help it if I wanted to
I wouldn't help it, no

I can't help it if I wanted to
I wouldn't help it even if I could
I can't help it if I wanted to
I wouldn't help it, no

爱情 to run my fingers
Softly while 你 sigh
爱情 came and possessed you
Bringing sparkles to your evey

Like a trip to heaven
Heaven is the prize
I'm so glad I found you
You're an 天使 in disguise

I van't help it if I wanted to
I wouldn't help it even if I could
I can't help it if I wanted to
I wouldn't help it, no

Once all alone
I was 迷失 in a world of strangers
No one to trust
On my own, I was lonely
你 suddenly appeared
It was cloudy before but now it's clear
你 took away the fear
你 brought me back to life

Chorus
你 are the sun
你 make me shine
或者 更多 like the stars
That twinkle at night
你 are the moon
That glows in my 心
You're my daytime my nighttime
My world
You're my life

Now I wake up everyday
With this smile upon my face
No 更多 tears, no 更多 pain
Cause 你 爱情 me
你 help me understand
That 爱情 is the answer to all that I am
And I'am a better man
你 taught me 由 sharing your life

Chorus
你 are the sun
你 make me shine
或者 更多 like the stars
That twinkle at night
你 are the moon
That glows in my 心
You're my daytime my nighttime
My world
You're my life

你 gave me strength
When I wasn't strong
你 gave me hope when all hope is 迷失
你 opened my eyes when I couldn'tšt see
爱情 was always here waiting for me

He got kicked in the back
He say that he needed that
He hot willed in the face
Keep daring to motivate
He say one 日 你 will see
His place in world history
He dares to be recognized
The fires deep in his eyes

How many victims must there be
Slaughtered in vain across the land
And how many struggles must there be
Before we choose to live the prophet's plan
Everybody...

Every 日 create your history
Every path 你 take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty

Don't let no one get 你 down
Keep movin' on higher ground
Keep flying until...

Somebody killed little Susie
The girl with the tune
Who sings in the daytime at noon
She was there screaming
Beating her voice in her doom
But nobody came to her soon...

A fall down the stairs Her dress torn
Oh the blood in her hair...
A mystery so sullen in air
She lie there so tenderly
Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care, Oh the blood in her hair...

Everyone came to see
The girl that now is dead
So blind stare the eyes in her head...
And suddenly a voice from the crowd 说
This girl lived in vain Her face 熊 such agony, such strain...
But only the man from 下一个 door
Knew Little Susie...
