Up for auction is a collection boasting an impressive range of artists from Timbaland and Rihanna to Beyoncé and Jay Z and many more. Driven predominantly by the success behind Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, as the winning investor you will benefit from a variety of income sources from across the world.

The 2X platinum track “Mirrors” from 10-time Grammy-winner Justin Timberlake, drives this collection’s earnings, contributing to over half of the royalties collected in the last 12 months.

It was released in 2013 but continues to see impressive growth rates today. In the last 12 months, earnings grew 15% over the previous timeframe. It’s worth noting, the track received the ASCAP Award for Most Performed Song in back to back years, 2014 and 2015.

“Mirrors” reached platinum status in over a dozen countries, so it’s no surprise that 61% of earnings in the last 12 months, and 46% of lifetime earnings, come from overseas.

Additional tracks from Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 include “Not A Bad Thing,” “Drink You Away,” “Take Back The Night” and more. Collectively, these works contribute to 20% of earnings in the last 12 months. This auction features massive names in the pop world. Check out the "Media" tab to see for yourself the additional legendary artists included in this collection.

Key Drivers

Star Power. Not surprisingly, the star power within this catalog is an attractive feature. From Justin Timberlake to Beyoncé — these are multi-Platinum-selling artists with a proven track record of hits, loyal fan bases, and mainstream appeal. A 10-time Grammy winner, Timberlake has sold over 32 million albums and 56 million singles globally, making him one of the world's best-selling music artists.

What’s interesting for the winning investor is that Justin Timberlake is currently touring with dates through April 2019. Tours give artists the chance to solidify their current fan base and expand their reach to new listeners. As live performances contribute to this collection’s earnings, you can benefit from Timberlake performing “Mirrors” or any other track in this collection live.

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 46% of historical earnings. Although international royalty distribution can lag behind domestic payments and arrive with limited detail, as the winner of this auction you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by BMI, regardless of when they were earned.

As this collection earns primarily from countries outside the United States, it’s important to note that international earnings can often be reported to distributors with limited detail. These international earnings often include income from radio, streaming platforms, and TV/Film.

Radio. Since “Mirrors” experienced massive popularity, it's no surprise that radio is historically one of the largest sources of revenue for this collection. Radio earnings account for 40% of this asset’s income to date. As the winning bidder, you will collect the radio royalties as they continue to be reported.

It’s important to take into consideration that these radio royalties have begun to taper off, according to the earning spread in the last 12 months. However, songs that experience significant radio play can often build a foundation of streaming and other types of income as the radio royalties slow down. For this collection of songs, streaming accounts for 15% of the catalog's royalties in the last 12 months.

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 15% of this pop catalog's earnings last year — and its income is on the rise historically.
