This is an opportunity to start earning from the very beginning on a recently released track for the lifetime of the copyright. Up for bid are public performance royalties from 21 Savage’s “Monster,” a single off his Grammy-nominated album I am > I Was

Not surprisingly, streaming is the top-producing income source, accounting for 78% of the last twelve months’ earnings, mirroring the rise in popularity of streaming music services. Spotify is the song’s leading platform with 40% of revenue in the last year. “Monster” has 125+ million Spotify streams to date. 

21 Savage recently won Best Rap Song at the 2020 Grammy Awards for “A Lot,” a single also included on the album I Am > I Was. Given the recent accolades for his work and coast to coast fanbase, 21 Savage seems to remain squarely on the rise.

Key Drivers

Hip-Hop/Streaming. This catalog is a perfect example of two trends: hip-hop and streaming's growth worldwide. 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 78% of this catalog’s earnings over the last 12 months.

New Releases. 21 Savage continues to drop popular singles; bread crumbs that possibly hint at more to come, mirroring work from his early career. While his newest release, “Immortal,” 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 — not to mention his recent Grammy Award.
