Description

Here's an opportunity to earn royalties from some of the most recognizable artists in the music industry today. This catalog contains over 80 tracks performed by Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue, Rita Ora, Cher, Kelly ClarksonNicki Minaj and many more. This star-studded asset generated $14,616 over the last 12 months.

The catalog earns over 80% of its income from countries outside the U.S., thanks to international pop stars Rita Ora and Kylie Minogue. Acting as the foundation is “How We Do (Party)” from British vocalist Rita Ora. Off her debut studio album Ora, “How We Do (Party)” has brought in 48% of historic royalties. The song charted in 16 different countries hitting No. 1 in the U.K., Ireland, Scotland and in the U.S. on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs.

Kylie Minogue’s “Into The Blue,” is the second highest earning track in the collection and brought in 31% of royalties in the last 12 months. Widely regarded as her “comeback” hit, the song was critically acclaimed and charted in 15 countries.

Arguably the most well-known name attached to this asset is global pop icon Beyoncé. Her song “Grown Woman” is the catalog’s third highest-earning title. The song was part of Pepsi's "Mirrors" ad campaign featuring Beyoncé. Check out the “Media” tab to see the commercial. “Grown Woman” was also a bonus track included in the special edition purchase of her fifth studio album, Beyoncé. The album was released with a bonus DVD of videos or “visuals.” “Grown Woman” is part of that video album -- it plays after the credits on the DVD and before the credits in digital format. The video currently buffers over 80 million views on YouTube.

Finally, this catalog boasts many other tracks from popular artists. There is “Young Forever” from Nicki Minaj, pop legend Cher’s “I Don't Have To Sleep To Dream,” “Pick Up The Pieces” performed by Jason Derulo, and “Bad Reputation” from Kelly Clarkson. The collection also contains titles from hip-hop veterans T.I. and Snoop Dogg: “Guns and Roses” and “The City,” respectively.

Key Drivers

Not surprisingly, the star power within this catalog is the most attractive feature. Rita Ora is a not only an international pop star -- she’s also a rising actress landing big roles in Hollywood feature films. Kylie Minogue has been making hits for over two decades with a massive global following. She is also about to drop a new album later in 2018, which can help bolster an artist’s back catalog.

Beyoncé is a pop culture phenomenon with 22 Grammys to her name and touted as one of the best-selling music artists in history. Forbes magazine has ranked Beyoncé as the most powerful female in entertainment -- twice! Not to be forgotten is living pop legend Cher. With more than 100 million records sold worldwide, Cher is known as one of the world's top-selling female recording artists of all time.
