Collect songwriter royalties from a unique collection of music that has 16+ years of earning history. This catalog earns money from 90s dance and hip-hop titles, as well as a Fatboy Slim hit.

The foundation of this offering is the song “Ya Mama,” bringing in 48% of historic earnings. In 2000, legendary British DJ Fatboy Slim sampled the hip-hop dance track "Shake Whatcha Mama Gave Ya"—performed by Stik E & The Hoodz—in his song “Ya Mama.” Fatboy Slim’s “Ya Mama” subsequently reached No. 30 on the UK singles chart. That same year, “Ya Mama” appeared in the film Charlie's Angels and was highlighted on the film’s soundtrack. The soundtrack was a success, receiving double Platinum certification.

Also included in this collection is “Freak It Out” by Doug E. Fresh -- accounting for 21% of income in the last year. The song was included in the 1996 film Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, as well as the soundtrack. The Gold-certified soundtrack hit No. 18 on the Billboard 200.

Not to be overlooked is Lisette Melendez’s “Together Forever.” The dance hit is the catalog’s second highest-earning track with 20% of income to date. Released in 1991, “Together Forever” peaked at No. 35 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Key Drivers

Sampling. Fatboy Slim's “Ya Mama” makes up 42% of the catalog’s income in the last 12 months. Because Fatboy Slim sampled “Shake Whatcha Mama Gave Ya,” the songwriter (and thus the winning bidder) benefits by collecting royalties from performances of both works. Take a listen “Ya Mama” and the portion it sampled from “Shake Whatcha Mama Gave Ya.”

TV/Film. This catalog benefits from placements in TV and film, which account for a quarter of its earnings to date. Both “Ya Mama” and “Freak It Out” are featured in films—Charlie's Angels and Don't Be a Menace…, respectively. This means every time either movie airs on TV or is streamed online, you’ll collect a royalty for the songs’ use.
