Now is your chance to invest in a catalog with a variety of genres and placements in recognizable films “Honey,” “You Got Served” and more. Top earners for this catalog include Grammy-winning R&B artist Brandy, Dutch electronic DJ Yellow Claw, and Grammy-winning rapper Lil Kim. In the last 12 months, these works have collected $3,207.

Film placements include the 2003 drama “Honey,” which features Jessica Alba. Grossing $62.6 million in box office sales, the dance film sparked the creation of not just one, but two sequels. And the soundtrack itself proved popular, with notable artists Sean Paul, Missy Elliot and more involved.

Another top earner for this collection of music “Do That Thing” was featured in a different dance drama,“You Got Served.” Released in 2004, the film grossed nearly $50 million. Featuring Omarion, the debut sparked a series creation. The film can be streamed online through Amazon, YouTube and more.

Key Drivers

Streaming. This catalog earns from streaming platforms Spotify, YouTube and more. Currently the top earner “In My Room” (featuring Yellow Claw, Ty Dolla $ign, Tyga and others) claims an impressive 15 million streams on YouTube. The popular dance track is the lead single off Yellow Claw’s debut studio album Blood For Mercy. The Dutch hardstyle artist currently has over 6 million monthly listeners on Spotify.

Yellow Claw is featured on multiple popular Spotify curated playlists ranging from “Motivation Mix” to “Hype” and “Trap Mojito.” The playlist “Motivation Mix” is followed by nearly 2.3 million users, with “Hype” following close behind at 1 million, while “Trap Mojito” claims over half a million followers. These placements direct Spotify users’ attention and recognition to the artist’s page.

Film/TV Placements. This catalog earns most notably from placements in the early 2000’s dance dramas “Honey” and “You Got Served.” Collecting across multiple television networks, you can earn royalties from MTV, VH1, Bravo and more.

These works also collect from the American competition show “X Factor.” The series aired on Fox between 2011 and 2013. Featuring Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, the music competition series is comparable to “The Voice” and “American Idol.”
