Up for auction is a decade worth of consistent earnings from “Bang” by US hip-hop artist Rye Rye featuring one of the 75 most influential people of the 21st century—M.I.A. Soon after Rye Rye came onto the scene at the ripe age of 17, she debuted “Bang” to the Fast & Furious soundtrack. The track appears on the deluxe version of the popular album Go! Pop! Bang!

In 2012, the album peaked at No. 12 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums. “Bang” has since appeared in a handful of popular films including Fast & Furious, Step Up 3D and the HBO series Entourage. As the winning investor, you will benefit from both film and television placements.

An interesting feature of this collection is its staying power over the past 10 years within the hip-hop genre. This collection continues to show consistent earnings a decade following its release. A collection this age is something worth noting as an investor.

Key Drivers

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 87% of historical earnings. Although international royalty distribution can lag behind domestic payments and arrive with limited detail, as the winner of this auction you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by ASCAP, regardless of when they were earned.

As this collection earns primarily from countries outside the United States - including the United Kingdom, Australia and France - it’s important to note that international earnings can often be reported to distributors with limited detail. These international earnings often include income from radio, streaming platforms, and TV/Film.

Catalog Age. This catalog contains “Bang” released in 2009. Industrywide, "Deep Catalog" titles (those released more than three years ago) make up 50.6% of total album consumption. This collection of songs aligns with this trend. The highest-earning tracks — “Bang” — were released 10 years ago. A catalog containing more mature works is something worth noting as an investor.

TV/Film Placements. This catalog benefits from placements in film, including Fast & Furious, contributing to nearly 31% of historic earnings. The track “Bang” earns from a placement in Fast & Furious, an action film starring Vin Diesel. It's worth noting that TV/Film royalties for this collection have driven earnings for a decade.
