Up for auction is the single track “Heart Won’t Forget” from the internationally recognized Norwegian Tropical House DJ Matoma and featured collaborator Gia. In the last 12 months alone, this track collected nearly $2,500 in earnings.

Since its release in 2016, “Heart Won’t Forget” has shown impressive quarterly growth driven predominantly by international sources. Overseas earnings drive the success behind the track. The top countries include Norway, the UK, Finland, among dozens more.

Key Drivers

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 81% 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.

Streaming. Any time “Heart Won’t Forget” is streamed on Spotify, Pandora, or Apple Music, you earn! On the streaming platform Spotify, artist Matoma has over 7.7 million monthly listeners, ranking in the top 500 in the world. The track “Heart Won’t Forget” itself has over 32 million streams and counting.

New Releases. Matoma just recently released a new album One in a Million in August of 2018. While the new songs are 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.

Tour. Matoma is currently touring with dates through December 29, 2018. Tours give artists the chance to solidify their current fan base and expand their reach to new listeners.
