Description

Now is your chance to collect songwriter royalties from a diverse selection of pop and hip-hop tracks dating back through 2009. This collection includes tracks from Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Mary J Blige and more.

The top-earning track from this auction is used in Fox’s No. 1 broadcast drama, Empire. The track “I’ll Be Everything” appeared in season three, featuring the Empire cast and Sierra McClain. Released in 2017, the track is included on Empire’s Spotify channel which boasts an impressive 755k+ monthly listeners. “I’ll Be Everything” contributes to a third of recent earnings.

Royalties from Justin Bieber’s “Favorite Girl” make up 39% of historic earnings. Released exclusively to the iTunes Store in conjunction with My World, the track charted within the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Lastly, a handful of additional tracks round out the majority of this catalog’s earnings including “The Makings Of You” from Tamar Braxton and “Request” from Teyana Taylor. The song “Don’t You Worry” earns from an additional placement in the Fox TV series Star.

Key Drivers

Hip-Hop/Pop/Streaming. This catalog is a perfect example of three trends: hip-hop, pop and streaming's growth worldwide. According to BuzzAngle's 2018 Year End Report, hip-hop is the most popular genre of music in the U.S. The driver for the increase is streaming. Hip-hop/rap tracks accounted for more than a quarter of all on-demand plays on music streaming services in the US in 2018. But that’s not all…

Additionally, the BuzzAngle 2018 Music Reports also cites pop titles as the second-most streamed songs last year, representing 19.3% of all streams, up from 15.6% in 2017. This collection claims not one, but two of the most popularly streamed genres! This is great news for you as streaming accounts for 72% of this catalog’s earnings over the last 12 months.

TV/Film. This catalog benefits from placements in TV/Film, contributing to over 10% of this catalog's historic earnings and 16% of recent earnings. “I’ll Be Everything” earns from a placement in Fox’s Empire. Empire first debuted to the network in 2015 and is now on its 5th season. The show airs exclusively on Fox, with past seasons available for streaming on Hulu (with former episodes also available for purchase through YouTube and iTunes).

According to Forbes, the first two seasons and the first half of the third has ranked as the No.1 broadcast drama for the advertiser-coveted 18-49-year-old demographic. In fact, beyond sports programming, in 2017 alone, the show made more money for the network than did any other series. Every time Empire plays on TV, a royalty is generated for “I’ll Be Everything.” As the winner of this auction, you'll collect the performance royalties for any of the songs' use in TV/Film.
