Description

This auction is for 30% of the songwriter's share of public performance royalties for a catalog of songs including “Fight Night” by Migos. 30% of “Fight Night” has earned $24,356 since its release in 2014. The catalog also includes Migos' songs “Birds” and “Where Were You.” In the last 12 months, 30% of all the songs in the catalog earned $4,807.

“Fight Night” makes up 92% of the earnings for this catalog. You'll see in the financials that its earnings spike due to radio play in Q3 2014. Since its radio height, its earnings from streaming have grown, thanks to services like Pandora, Spotify, and YouTube. It currently has over 89 million plays on Spotify, and its official YouTube video has over 22 million views. “Fight Night” was certified gold by the RIAA in May of 2015.

NFL and MLB teams have even played “Fight Night” in stadiums during games. It's interesting to note that these in-stadium plays generate a public performance royalty. In the financial data you'll see earnings from the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, and Boston Red Sox, among others.

Key Drivers

  1. Streaming Growth. Songs that experience significant radio play often build a foundation of streaming income as the radio royalties begin to slow down. This catalog follows that trend, as well as the industry-wide trend of consistent streaming growth. Streaming royalties for this catalog grew 18% in 2016 over 2015, and 311% in 2015 over 2014.
  2. Migos' Popularity and New Releases. Since the release of “Fight Night” in 2014, Migos' popularity has skyrocketed. Their album “Culture,” released in January 2017, was certified platinum by the RIAA in July. Its tracks combine for hundreds of millions of Spotify streams and YouTube views. And their next album, “Culture 2,” is in the works. New albums can help reinvigorate artists' back catalogs, because the release of new music draws interest from first time listeners and also reengages existing fans.
