Michael Jackson died five years ago this month, but his legacy will be thriving for years to come.  Rolling Stone reports that the hologram seen at May's Billboard Music Awards is just the beginning. There could be as many as eight more albums (!) of outtakes and repackaged material, along the lines of the current release Xscape.

 

Former Sony Music CEO Tommy Mottola said Jackson often worked on 20 to 30 songs for each album -- the ones that didn't make the cut could see the light of day in years to come.

 

The King of Pop is still producing plenty of gold -- the estate has earned more than $600 million bucks in the past five years, thanks to deals with Cirque du Soleil and Sony.  

 

With that kind of money being made, you know the folks that run the estate will likely be very happy to continue churning out more albums in the years to come.  How do you feel about that?  Are you okay with it or does it feel exploitative? Feel free to leave your opinions in the comment section and you're more than welcome to share this with your friends to see how they feel about it too! :-)
