Michael Jackson doesn't own the whole catalogue.

He owns a portion. Sony/ATV owns the rest.
he did own whole thing then when he got into financial trouble he did the deal to share with sony.

but to the n*gga who asked about mariah.

she had a 90M dollar contract and when she released glitter movie and it flopped the label thought she was done for and wanted to cut its losses, they gave her 50 or 70M(i cant rmbr) to walk away and she did like

I never understood how Mariah could've made that much $ when she isn't really a business mogul (or at least I didn't think she is).


I don't think she wrote many (if any) or her songs or got royalties for writing other artist's songs, but i could be wrong tho.
What? Mariah is known and famous for writing damn near all of her music. And thats a LOOOOOOOOOT of albums and #1 hits man. And she has written a LOT for others also if I recall correctly.

Her consistency, sales, what she charges for shows, and the fact that she writes and performs 95% of her catalog is why she is so paid.

This is fu*king wrong...... This has to be cash in the bank. And not everything they own. Cause Michael Jackson own the Beatles copyrights which is more than that damn list there.
EXACTLY!! Plus he out bidded Paul McCartney for the rights to part of the Beatles catalog and thats why their friendship went sour, but yet Paul has 400 miliion more than Mike had??

1) She been in the game consistently and successfully since 1990

2) She got 23 US number one hits, spanning 1990-2008 (More than ELVIS)

3) One of the first mainstream female R&B acts to be popular with mainstream audiences and accepted by hip hop audiences
.


Funny thing is she don't even own her publishing of masters. If she did, she'd likely be worth A LOT more.
True, but that doesn't really explain her being worth 500 million. There are other artists that were in the game consistently longer than her and this list has her ranked higher than them.

There's only so much $ you can make off of music alone. You most likely have to be business oriented to make 500 mil

I think this list is off b/s I don't see how someone like Mariah (who doesn't write her own songs, own her own masters, and isn't a business mogul) can be worth more than Jay Z or other artists that are also business savy.

oh ok, I thought she had other folks write the majority of her hits songs.

Didn't know she wrote her own hits.

Paul McCartney on the list proves it's fake or outdated.

There are no real figures for these kinds of lists, there's rarely any base to them. Why isn't Madonna or Celine Dion on this list?

So If Paul McCartney, his 800 milli and dropped it in a 7% yield company, he'd make about 56 milli a year for just farting in his sleep.
