This catalog contains custom-produced music featured in two seasons of the Disney-developed, Argentine young-adult telenovela Violetta.

Many of these songs were created specifically for this TV series, and are highlighted prominently within the programming. As a result, these tracks receive more lucrative payouts than traditional background music for their “featured” and lengthier presence.

Every time an episode of the series with these tracks is streamed, a royalty is generated. If the series begins to stream less frequently or stops streaming, royalties for the catalog would decrease accordingly.


Mechanical royalties are the top-producing source with 95% of earnings. These foreign mechanical earnings do not provide detail on the underlying source (i.e. Disney +), because they are collected by foreign publishers and sent to Disney Music Group for distribution. 

It’s worth noting that the first payment of each calendar year is rather large with the second payment being much smaller. However, if you review the yearly earnings over the last three years, annual returns have been relatively consistent, averaging about $7,500/each year. 

The catalog’s earnings are fairly diversified across three titles: “Peligrosamente Bellas” (21%), “On Beat” (20%), and “Nuestro Camino” (19%).
