This listing is an investor resale of a highly competitive asset that sold earlier this year. The investor is selling the remaining 9+ years left on this 10-year term. 

The catalog features two recently released tracks performed by hip-hop artists Tinashe, Ty Dolla Sign, French Montana, T-Pain, and Russ.


Earnings for this catalog are driven by international royalties with 63% of last year’s returns. Domestic streaming is the second highest-earning source bringing in 32%. Australia is the leading foreign royalty source while Apple Music is the top contributing streaming platform.


Tinashe’s “Me So Bad” is this catalog’s foundation — with 80% of last year’s earnings. The 2018 release features Ty Dolla Sign and French Montana and hit No. 21 on Billboard’s R&B Songs. To date, “Me So Bad” has 30+ million streams on Spotify, while the video has nearly 32 million views on YouTube. 

Also included in this collection is 2019’s “Here It Is” from T-Pain featuring Russ.


Hip-Hop & Streaming. This offering is a perfect example of two trends: hip-hop and streaming's growth worldwide. According to BuzzAngle's 2019 Year-End Report, hip-hop is the most popular genre of music in the U.S. The driver for the increase is streaming. Six out of the top 10 streamed songs were hip-hop/rap and 52 out of the top 100 most streamed songs were hip-hop/rap.

New Releases. Tinashe released a new single in February 2020. While the new song is not included in this auction, new releases can help boost an artist's back catalog, as it draws discovery among first-time listeners and re-engages existing fanbase.


This catalog’s public performance earnings were historically paid by BMI. The songwriter recently resigned from BMI and is now a member of ASCAP. The data presented was collected/paid by BMI.

Going forward, the winner of this auction will collect from BMI and ASCAP. BMI will represent/collect on the included works in the United States. Royalties collected outside the United States will begin to flow through the songwriter's current society, ASCAP. As the winning bidder, you will be entitled to any past performance royalties collected from around the world to be paid by BMI and ASCAP, regardless of when they were earned.
