According to BuzzAngle's 2019 Year End Report, hip-hop is the most popular genre of music in the U.S. The driver for the increase is streaming. Six out of the top 10 streamed songs were Hip-Hop/Rap and 52 out of the top 100 most streamed songs were hip-hop/rap. Streaming accounts for 51% of this catalog’s earnings over the last 12 months.

New Releases. DaniLeigh released a new single “My Present” in December 2019. While the new song is not included in this auction, new releases can help boost an artist's back catalog. The release of new music draws discovery among first-time listeners and re-engages existing fans.
