Michael Jackson's catalogue is reportedly valued at $1.2 billion. 

According to Billboard, Michael Jackson's entire song collection is believed to be worth $1.2 billion.  

This covers all of the artist's songs, copyrights, and future revenues from streaming and licensing agreements. 

Sony is alleged to have purchased a 50% part in Jackson's catalog last year, in what is reportedly the most lucrative sale of an individual musician's work. 

According to experts, another blockbuster sale for Queen's music is set to close soon, valued at roughly $1.2 billion.  

"When I initially started in the business, about 30 years ago, there was a lot of hostility to selling catalogs. 

Many songwriters couldn't bring themselves to sell their work. 

"And that changed about ten years ago," said Guy Blake, an entertainment lawyer and partner at Granderson Des Rochers. 

Investors have been betting big on music rights in recent years, with legendary artists like Bob Dylan 

Tina Turner, and Bruce Springsteen, as well as contemporary musicians like Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, selling entire portfolios for millions of dollars.

Hipgnosis Songs Fund, a music investment organization, purchased Bieber's catalog last year for more than $200 million.
