Up for bid are the songwriter royalties from the debut LOLAWOLF album. This listing includes the album Calm Down from the electropop duo, featuring Zoë Kravitz. Released in 2014, the album initiated a cross-country tour for the band, appearing at festivals from Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo, as well as the recording of a subsequent hit single with Miley Cyrus.

The track “Start Now Stop” contributes to nearly half of this catalog’s earnings in the last 12 months, and nearly a third of this collection’s all time earnings. Much of this is driven by a placement in the hit Fox series Empire.

Additional top-earning songs “Only You,” “Ayo,” and “Take A Hint” have all shown substantial growth in the last 12 months as well. Bid now for your chance to invest in an album with impressive growth!
