Invest in royalties produced by a collection highlighted by a track from pop superstar Beyoncé. In the last 12 months, Beyoncé’s “Flawless” brought in 53% of this catalog’s earnings — with the official remix featuring Nicki Minaj accounting for an additional 22% of income.

Released in 2013, “Flawless” (stylized as “***Flawless”) is off the Grammy-winning album Beyoncé. The song peaked at No. 41 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014 following its release as a radio single. The album version consists of two parts — “Bow Down” and “Flawless” — divided by a speech from Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The official “Flawless Remix” was released in 2014 and marks the first collaboration between Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé. To date, “Flawless” and “Flawless Remix” have a combined 190+ million spins on Spotify.

Also included is “Trophies” from Young Money and Drake bringing in 16% in royalties in the last year. The song has over 100 million plays on Spotify and peaked at No. 50 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Key Drivers

Song Age. This catalog contains music with releases dating back to 2013. Industrywide, “Deep Catalog” (music released more than 3 years ago) represents 51% of music streamed today. Impressively, this collection of songs aligns with this trend, with its highest earning work released five years ago. A catalog containing more mature works is something is worth noting as an investor.

Pop & Streaming. According to the BuzzAngle 2017 Music Report, pop titles were the third-most streamed songs last year, representing 15.6% of all streams. Streaming accounts for 24% of this catalog's earnings last year — and its income is on the rise — a 6% increase over the previous four quarters.

Featured Artists. 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! Drake’s massive popularity is something to note as well. In June, the RIAA announced that Drake is the top certified singles artist ever with 142 million certified units.
