Here we have an opportunity to earn from three newly-released tracks for the lifetime of the copyright. 

Up for bid are public performance royalties for Christian gospel from Tamela Mann, R&B from Trey Songz, and an EDM/pop single from Dutch DJ Chico Rose


International royalties lead the way with 34% of last year’s returns, followed closely by domestic streaming with 24% of earnings. 


Tamela Mann’s “Ups And Downs” is this catalog’s foundation — with 49% of last year’s earnings. The 2018 release features her husband David Mann and was released on their first collaboration album Us Against The World: The Love Project

The remaining two songs split the remaining returns: “Shootin Shots” (26%) and “Where Did The Love Go” (25%). “Shoot Shots” is performed by Trey Songz featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Tory Lanez. The single is off Trey’s surprise album 11. “Where Did The Love Go” is from Chico Rose, a Dutch DJ with a pop/EDM sound and features Afrojack and vocalist Lyrica Anderson.

Key Drivers

New Releases. All three lead artists — Trey Songz, Tamela Mann, and Chico Rose — released new singles in August 2020. While the new songs are 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.

Streaming Growth in 2019.  According to the 2020 IFPI Global Music Report, streaming revenues increased 23% to $11.4 billion, accounting for 56% of all recorded music revenue worldwide.  This collection offers investors the unique opportunity to invest in the overarching positive trend and impact of streaming services.

International Earnings. Thirty-four percent of this catalog’s earnings in the last year come from abroad. 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.
