Place a bid on this global pop offering featuring earnings from various international pop acts. This asset boasts income from upwards of 55 different countries, with 90% of royalties to date coming directly from Japan and Sweden.

The highest-earning income source is streaming, with 32% of last year’s earnings. Streaming royalties also showed the best overall year-over-year stability among income sources. Spotify is the largest contributing platform with over 90% streaming revenue. And while digital download activity is in decline throughout the industry, downloads accounted for 31% of revenue last year.

The title “Fick Feeling” from Swedish pop group Samir & Viktor is this catalog’s highest-earning song. Released in 2016, “Fick Feeling” peaked at No. 11 on the Swedish singles chart and accounted for 42% of last year’s royalties.The song “Beautiful Hangover” is the second leading contributor with 32% of income in the last 12 months. The 2010 single is from South Korean hip-hop band Big Bang.

Also included is “Gentleman” from South Korean boy band Shinee, along with two singles — “Vive La Vida” and “Soy Como Soy” — from Romanian pop star Nicole Cherry.

Key Drivers

Streaming Growth Worldwide. According to IFPI’S Global Music Report 2019, streaming revenues were up 34% in 2018, accounting for nearly half (47%) of total recorded music revenues. By the end of 2018, there were 255 million users of paid subscription accounts globally. This is good news for you as the investor, as 32% of last year's income (both public performance and streaming mechanical royalties) came from streaming.

Dollar Age This catalog has a Dollar Age of 5 years. This means the majority of royalties earned in the last 12 months came from songs that have collected royalties for five years. A higher Dollar Age like this suggests stability and can help sustain the asset’s earnings moving forward.
