Now is your chance to earn from early releases of pop-powerhouses Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber. In the last 12 months, this collection, driven predominantly by international sources, earned nearly $1,500.

“Honeymoon Avenue”, which was featured as the first track on Ariana Grande’s debut studio album Yours Truly, contributes to nearly 45% of this collection’s earnings in the last 12 months. Following its 2013 release, the platinum-certified album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The album also debuted at No. 1 on iTunes charts in over 50 countries, contributing to this track’s international success.

This collection includes the additional single “Only 1” from Ariana Grande’s multi-platinum, My Everything. The Grammy-nominated album charted at No. 1 across the world, even peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the US. “Only 1” contributes to nearly a third of this catalog’s earnings in the last 12 months.

Finally, this listing includes the Justin Bieber track “Die In Your Arms” from his 2012 album Believe. The album has been certified multi-platinum in over a half-dozen countries across the world and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The song “Die In Your Arms” contributes to over half of this catalog’s historic earnings and is currently on the rise.

Key Drivers

Streaming. According to the BuzzAngle 2017 Music Report, pop titles were the third-most streamed songs last year, representing 15.6% of all streams. Streaming accounts for 20% of this pop catalog's earnings last year.

New Releases. Ariana Grande just recently released a new album Sweetner 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.

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 63% 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.
