Up for bid is a pop collection boasting strong worldwide earnings from several global artists and groups. Thanks to its international appeal, this catalog earns from over 70 countries, with 86% of historic income coming directly from Japan and Spain.
Streaming is the fastest growing source of earnings, up 186% in the last 12 months over the previous timeframe. And while digital download activity is in decline throughout the industry, downloads for this catalog have remained stable. But the biggest source of revenue in the last 12 months was live performances — with 39 songs generating royalties from live performances around the globe.
To date, the highest-earning title is “Mi Norte Es Tu Sur” performed by Spanish pop vocalist David Bisbal, with 24% of last year’s royalties. “Mi Norte Es Tu Sur” was released in 2016 off Bisbal’s double-Platinum album Hijos del Mar. Closely behind it, is “Spinning” (bringing in 20% of last year’s earnings) from South Korean pop duo Tohoshinki. The 2014 release saw a recent spike thanks to the group performing it live in Japan and it was re-released by Tohoshinki on a 2018 compilation album.
You’ll notice a significant earnings spike in 2017. This stems from the single “Joy-ride” from the massively popular Japanese male group, Exile. While released 2016, it was used as theme song for Fuji TV's broadcast of the 2016 Summer Olympics, which caused that spike. Rounding out the top-earning songs in the catalog is a new release “Gentleman” from Korean boy band Shinee, and “Caught In The Middle” performed by American singer-songwriter Anastacia.
Mechanical Royalties. As the winning bidder, you’ll be collecting the songwriter’s public performance and mechanical royalties from the Swedish performing rights organization, STIM. When a song in this catalog is streamed on-demand, it counts as both a public performance and a “mini-purchase.” This means the winner of this auction will collect two payments for one use of a song!
Pop & Streaming. According to the BuzzAngle 2018 Music Report, pop titles were the second-most streamed songs last year, representing 19.3% of all streams, up from 15.6% in 2017. Streaming accounts for 9% of this pop catalog's earnings last year — and its income is on the rise — a significant increase over the previous four quarters.
