With this deal, Sony acquires full rights to over three million songs, including works by the Beatles, Bob Dylan and Taylor Swift.

The Jackson estate is said to be $250 million in debt, and this deal will reportedly help reduce that and give his children more financial power.

“The entertainment businesses have long been a core part of Sony and are a key driver of our future growth,” Kazuo Hirai, Sony’s president and chief executive, said in a statement. “These businesses will continue to contribute to our success for years to come.”
